I’m loving this week’s Friday Fluff Up project! I’d really hoped to finish up the bathroom (the wallpaper’s done ~ now I’m just waiting on my hubby to finish the trim work . . .hopefully that will get done this weekend?) But, I’ve been wanting a new wreath for our front door, and this morning after looking around Michaels (and seeing prices upwards of $50), I decided to try my hand at making a burlap wreath. I’m so glad I did!
It was a little more work for than I anticipated, however burlap is very, forgiving so if you make a mistake or two as you go it’s not the end of the world. Here’s what I used . . .
- 3 Burlap 6″ Ribbon Bolts on sale $4.99 at Michaels (I think I could have maybe just used 2, but did need a bit of that third roll)
- 1 wire wreath frame $3.99
- Used 10% off coupon
- Total = $15.56
I already had the blue chevron ribbon at home, but ended up using another bit of yellow chevron instead because it felt a little more summer-early-fall-ish. 😉 I did use a bit of wire to attach that onto the wreath, but that’s about it!
I’m not sure that I’m going to leave just the Chevron ribbon (it was all I had on hand, and matches our local high school colors so I think it’s kind of fun for football season?) I really do love the ribbon on this one, so the next time I’m at the craft store that’s what I’m going to look for. 😉
It wasn’t quite as simple as this Christmas Wreath (those were so easy!), but it’s definitely doable, and so much smarter than paying for one. (I saw them priced at up to $85 on Etsy. YIKES!)
Here are a few more easy wreath ideas if you’re looking for a way to inexpensively fluff up your home too . . .
This post is linked to Living Well Spending Less Thrifty Thursday – thanks for the opportunity to link up! I’d love for you to join me over on Pinterest (I love that place!) If you have a blog and have done a little fluffing in your home, I’d love to see it, so leave your link in the comments section. Also, if there’s a craft you’ve seen on a website that you’re hoping to make, feel free to share that link as well (I’m always looking for new ideas!)
