Burlap Wreath

  • Sharebar

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 followed the instructions over HERE and HERE, and my best tip is to twist the burlap well between each loop. 

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!)

  1. Should have used a Hobby Lobby coupon. Doesn't Micheal's take competitor coupons? That would have saved you 40% off on one regular price item.
