Thanksgiving Burlap Wreath

It seems I am always the last one to jump on the bandwagon of trends, just when they are fading out,

I discover wonderful uses for whatever that trend may be.

Burlap is one of those trends, I have gently creeped into using it, although I always loved the way

everyone else has incorporated burlap into their homes.




You know me and wreaths...

I actually had an Etsy shop for awhile, and I certainly enjoyed working in my little shop.

I was ever so fortunate to sell several wreaths, but sadly enough the shipping costs were too high.

So, I am back to happily making them for myself and anyone in my family who requests one!



Since this is a Thanksgiving wreath,

I began to think what was on top of my list of being thankful for this year.

~Gentleness~


Gentleness of spirit,

words,

and actions.




So, this burlap wreath represents gentleness with it's flowing lines,

fringed fabric,

muted oranges and browns,

buds of burlap,

frosted acorns.





I will hang this Gentle Burlap Wreath on my front door.






Welcoming family and friends with a gentle mind and spirit.





And here is the  Tutorial on how to make a Thanksgiving Burlap Wreath.

Once it is all finished it measures 24 inches.







Any questions or clarifications I am here!

  2. The pretty roses softens the natural color burlap. It's very nice and thanks for sharing the instructions with us. I've never made anything with burlap so you are WAY ahead of me! Sweet hugs, Diane

  3. Jemma, I love it! I have a fetish for burlap and just bought a burlap ottoman. I love how you've mixed both the bleached and natural burlap together! The flowers and acorns are the icing on the cake. I bought of bunch of glitzy acorns very similar to these on clearance at a local shop for $1 and that was for a bundle of 3 or 4 of them. Not this year, but I would love to tackle one for next year. Thanks for sharing the tutorial! Pinned.
    hugs,

  9. This is about the prettiest burlap wreath I've ever seen! I love it. Thanks for sharing how you made it. I'd love it if you would share this at "What We Accomplished Wednesday," at Green Willow Pond, if you care to. It goes live every other Tuesday night. Have a great weekend!
