I had been shopping for quite a few weeks looking for a Valentine wreath but couldn't find anything that tickled my fancy or could make me fork over $50 for a wreath I could make myself.. This wreath cost me about $6 to make. Thanks to pinterest and Laurie at Gallamorewest I thought I would give this wreath a try.
- 1 wire hanger (bent into the shape of a heart and untwisted)
- 1 yard of Burlap (cut into 3-4 inch strips)
- decorative ribbon
First I took my burlap and very sloppily cut it into 3-4 inch strips. You can tell my cuts were pretty sloppy but with this wreath you can't tell at all. The edges will fray, but that helps give it a rustic appearance.
Keep threading on your burlap strips until your wire is as full as you would like it. Mine took almost my whole yard of fabric.
Once you have your wire nice full of burlap twist the ends of the wire hanger back together. Bend your wire into a better heart shape if needed. Mine was really easy to bend and I did all the bending with my bare hands.
Add a bow for embellishment and I added a ribbon hanger for mine also. Do whatever you need to in order to hang your latest creation.
Thanks again Laurie for inspiring me to get back into crafting.
