However, the other day while at Michael's I scored a screaming deal---3 - 10 yd. rolls of burlap ribbon for the price of 1. I think it was $6.99. Lucky me they had actually left the tag up from the day before and so I got the sale price. Yeah!
I've been looking at burlap wreaths on Pinterest and while they are probably everywhere, I still like them. I had decided to just hold onto the ribbon as I knew I had a wire wreath frame also packed away somewhere in that POD. But at the dollar store I happened to see those frames and for $1 I bought another one. I felt like I need something crafty to do to keep my mind sane.
Here is a backside view of my wreath.
There are plenty of how-tos online, but basically I just took loops of burlap and pulled it through the wire sections until it was as full as I wanted.
I then added some flowers that I already had sitting in a vase and cut them with wire cutters and just shoved them into the loops of ribbon. I didn't want the flowers to be permanent. I had some brighter flowers that I thought I wanted, but this turned out more calm and earthy. For now I am just using what I have on hand. And I may want to change it seasonally down the road.
For now it is hanging in my dining room. I didn't think I wanted to leave it outside to possibly get ruined.
