Burlap Fabric Blog Hop - Burlap Wreath Tutorial



The Designers In the Designer Craft Connection were recently invited to participate in a blog hop with BurlapFabric.com  We were sent a big box of goodies and I was immediately drawn to a large piece of denim blue burlap fabric called Billow Blue - love that name!  I have always wanted to create a rustic wreath with burlap and this has been the perfect opportunity!



It was quick and easy and I didn't need that many supplies, so here's how I made it:

Materials:


Instructions:

Cut a section of the Billow Burlap Fabric 16" wide by 2 yards long.



Gather the burlap fabric in a circle and place the wreath on top.  Leave the the plastic on the straw wreath for a cleaner project and work space!  Fold over the raw edges and secure to the back with greening pins.

Continue to gather the burlap fabric while folding over and secure every few inches with the greening pins.



Cut a section of the red jute webbing 24" long, fold in half, overlapping 4" in the back to form a loop.  Gather and secure with a 12" piece of wire.  Wrap red twine around the center to hide the wire.  Cut 2 lengths of red jute webbing 12" long each and fish tail one end on each piece.  Attach bow and tails to wreath with greening pins.

Stamp a W on the linen favor bag with red ink.  Pull draw strings and attach under bow to wreath with a greening pin.



Hang and enjoy!!!
