Fall Burlap Wreath

So I am officially a "wreath person"!! I use to think wreaths were cheesy, but then I started seeing some cute, simple wreaths on Pinterest. So I decided to just spend the $13 and give it a shot!!

1. Cut about 5 inches worth of the burlap in half.

2. Using the cut part of the burlap tie a knot. It's best to do this around the middle section of one of the dividers.

3. Pull a small piece of the burlap up through the wreath form. Twist and fluff the burlap. This youtube video really helped me understand how to do this step: Burlap Wreath Tutorial

4. Repeat step 3 until the wreath is completely covered in burlap.

5. Cut the excess burlap off at the end; leaving about 1 inch to fold over one of the wires. Use hot glue to secure the burlap (see the photo above).

6. Hot glue your decorations on the front of the wreath. I bought a $4 bouquet of fall flowers at Walmart and used these to decorate the front.
