BURLAP WREATH

I've seen these and many other burlap wreaths all over blog land and decided I needed one of my own for my fall / Halloween decor.

I started this wreath with a wire coat hanger shaped into a circle (this was the hardest part)

I then cut strips of burlap about 4 inches in width and about 4 feet long.

I'll admit this took more burlap than I thought to make it look full....like about a yard and a half give or take.
(sorry no pics I did this late at night spur of the moment in my poorly lite basement)

I folded and threaded the burlap (like an accordian) onto the coat hanger and scrunched and folded over and over until my wreath looked full. I pulled my threads to give it a messy look once I was done.

I secured the edges of the coat hanger with some wire and added a piece of fabric to hang it.



I'm not too sure how I will decorate this sucker for Fall or Halloween yet so in the meantime I pinned this little spider on.


I'm even thinking of making these darling little pumpkins to pin onto it that I found over at

  13. I made this wreath and it turned out so cute! Of course, yours looks a lot better. Instead of the web, I put a large spider from Walmart for $3. I need a little more burlap, I suppose, as it's been on the door for a couple weeks and is started to have gravity take it's course and expose the coat hanger wire. Oh well, cute and only $3 to make since was given the burlap! Thanks for the cute idea.
