Burlap Wreath




Finally after a long, long winter I decided it was time to make a summer wreath for the front door.  

I wanted to use up some items that I had a hand to keep the cost down.  

First I wrapped and hot glued the burlap around the wreath.

I took a piece of burlap that was 3-4 times longer than the size of the wreath.  Using my hot glue gun I glued the center burlap string on the end to make sure it was secure and not to pull through when gathering.  Then on the other end I found the center burlap string and gently pulled it to make a gather. I attached the gathered piece to the wreath.

I made little bouquets of dried caspia, lavender and statice around the wreath. Then I glued some greenery under each little bouquet to finish it off.
