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!)
