Burlap Christmas Wreath

December 13, 2012

My inspiration for using such vibrant and bold colors for this burlap 

wreath came from my visit to the Red Door.  I feel as though my 

visit there helped me to step out of my comfort zone.





The Red Door will always be such a magical shop for me to visit.



So, now that I have the courage to decorate with more color and

using the supplies which I purchased from the Red Door.  I have  

my glue gun heated, straw wreath and scissors in hand!



                                     







Step 1:


Cut 6" x 10" strips of burlap to cover straw wreath.  Tightly 

wrap the wreath with the burlap and secure with hot glue.












Step 2:

  After wreath is completely covered with burlap use floral wire 

and hot glue to secure decorative floral and other 

embellishments.



                                              Step 3:
Any time I create I always let my craft sit a day or two.  I live 

with it a bit and then add or take away depending on how it 

looks and feels to me.

                                            Step 4:

I like my wall decor even, so I always use a level and measuring 

tape to insure straight lines.



Finished vintage wreath and mantle.
