burlap wreath {a tutorial}

Today, I’m excited to share an easy burlap wreath! The loops give it a whimsical feel and the gold dotted burlap is just so lovely and fun!

If you follow me on Instagram, you know that I was super excited to find this gold dotted burlap fabric at Joann’s the other week. I bought a yard, not quite knowing what I was going to do with it. And is it any surprise I chose to use it for a wreath? Nope-none at all.

Materials:

1 yd burlap fabric
foam wreath form
straight pins
scissors

I didn’t really have a technique to the placement of the loops. You can pin in rows if want a more structured look, or just do what I did and eyeball it as you go.

And there you go! An easy, fun and versatile wreath-I really love how this turned out…it’ll be hard to take down after the holidays are over!

Thanks for reading!
