It's no surprise that wreaths can get pretty pricey.
And when you have to make two of everything, you start thinking of ways to save.
With the holidays fast approaching, I was looking for something that could take me through the end of the year.
Burlap was the answer!
I plan to just change out my bows for every season and enjoy!
So here is a fast easy DIY to follow.
You start with a wire wreath.
This one came from Hobby Lobby but they can be found at Wal Mart and just about every craft store around.
Burlap ribbon is always my first choice but it was not on sale this weekend.
So with my 40% off coupon I purchased about 5 yards of fabric.
I cut them into strips about 5 inches wide and a good length to work with.
I twisted a pipe cleaner to the end of my fabric strip.
Floral wire can work too but it's not as easy to handle.
With my pipe cleaner, I attached my first piece of fabric.
And here is where all the fun starts. I made a loop about the size to fit around a soda can.
After you make your loop, tuck it under the wire next to your pipe cleaner.
Just weave in and out and repeat....
Your wreath will start filling in and fluffing out.
I found these fun letters at a gift shop near my home.
I painted them white and tied them on with some jute string.
You can see above, they have little slots to slip your ribbon or string through. LOVE THAT!
I added some blue ribbon to get me through late summer and will replace it with some fun fall ribbon soon.
Now my doors are all gussied up and ready for the upcoming holidays.
Now what can I do with my extra burlap?
I think Pinterest may have just given me a gazillion ideas.
