I'm a little obsessed with burlap this Valentine's Day. I love the texture, I love how it looks...what can I say, I'm just loving it this year.
I have to admit, I didn't use to like the whole yarn/fabric wrapped wreath trend. I thought they looked plain and boring. I tend to be more of a big, poofy wreath person. But after a while, the simplicity of the wrapped wreaths started growing on me and now I'm completely on board. Besides, this fabric and burlap wreath has a little poof to it, so I'm happy:) To make one, here's what you need:
1/2 yard duck cloth fabric
1. Cut cloth into 1 1/2" wide strips. Wrap wreath with strips, securing the ends with wreath pins in the back. Once wrapped, go back and trim any strings hanging off of the fabric.
2. Create loose loops with the burlap, and attach them to the wreath, two at a time, with the wreath pins. You can adjust the loops and add more pins later if needed.
3. Once the fabric and burlap is secured, you can add more embellishments or hang as is!
What kind of a wreath person are you?
