Welcome back! Thanks for joining me on day 2 of my 25 Days of Christmas mini series dedicated to everything Christmas. Yesterday I talked about our El
f(ves) On The Shelf and shared our schedule of all the mischief #sammyandsophiameyer plan to get into.
It’s been quite chaotic around here trying to catch up so I am grateful for the reason to sit down for a few minutes and share my next project, a burlap wreath tutorial. I’ve never made a wreath before so this was a fun little project that I think ended up turning out great. It was also fairly inexpensive and easy to do, about one hour total.
FloraCraft Wire Wreath
Burlap – I used 4″ by 7 yards
Yarn – Any kind and color is fine
Sewing needle – One with a wider hole makes threading it easier
My mom and I did some brainstorming and decided it would be easier to thread the burlap with yarn using a needle and then scrunch it together. I quickly realized it was easier and quicker to fold the burlap a few times and push the needle through. This limited the number of times I needed to pull the yarn through which saved a lot of time. I also had to go back and redo about half of it because I got too lax with the spacing and the scrunch wasn’t tight enough. For a larger wreath you can space the threading out more. There is no right or wrong, just your preference.
Once it was scrunched to fit the FloraCraft Wire Wreath I turned it over and used Cloth Wire to secure the burlap to the wreath. I made sure to secure the burlap well on the inside and outside rim of the wreath. Then using hot glue I secured some gold embellishments I found at Canadian Tire.
I am so excited with the final project and how it looks on the wall in the kids play room.
Tomorrow I will be sharing some of my favorite Christmas music!
