Burlap Wreath

I have wanted to make a wreath for a while and have been really inspired by all of the christmas ornament wreaths I've seen around the blogosphere.  Unforunately we don't have any spare bulbs around the house and I would have had to make a drive to one of the box stores to get a good price (closest being a half hour away).  So needless to say, I decided to make one out of materials I already had around the house.  I bent a wire coat hanger into a circle, cut burlap and red fabric into strips of 1" x 5" and had at it.  I ran out of burlap so the wreath isn't quite as thick as I would have liked, but for a quick and easy project, it didn't turn out half bad. 

Happy crafting!

  5. Great job. And I can't believe you used a coat hanger; I can never get those to bend right for me. Thanks for sharing with Made it Monday! Jules
