Valentine's Day Decorations--Fabric and Burlap Wreath






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:

Supplies
1/2 yard duck cloth fabric
Burlap garland
Wreath pins
Styrofoam wreath

Directions

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?

I'm linking up at some of these great parties and Savvy Southern Style, Debbiedoos, Between Naps on the Porch and Shabby Creek Cottage.

  1. Where do you find wreath pins? I used hot glue with the last wreath I made and the front door of my house gets so much sun that it started to melt! Any info helps. Thanks!

  3. Enjoyed seeing your wreath, it's different, very simple but that's what I love about it. Not sure what kind of wreath person I am, it varies. I like to take ideas I see and give them a little spin of my own.
    What do wreath pins looks like? I have some corsage pins I thought I'd use if I can't find them at Michaels. I'd be looking for the u shaped pins (like a staple) for floral design. Is that what they are? Enjoy your blog Katie.

    1. Aww, thanks so much!! Wreath pins are the same as the U shaped pins you use for floral design. Sometimes they market them as wreath pins, sometimes floral pins. Same thing though!

  8. What a fun contrast between the ultra girly pink, and the down on the farm burlap, love it! I'm glad you mentioned using it for other holidays because by the time I get around to it, it might need to be a Halloween wreath haha! http://www.modernhomemakers.com
