Burlap Wreath

Thought I'd share a little craft project I did last week. I saw this tutorial here and thought it was too cute not to try out myself. I was thrilled to that the total cost was less than $10! I've loved driving home and seeing this bright and cheery wreath on the door.

Start with a Styrofoam wreath and paint the color of your matching burlap.

Cut burlap (I bought 1 1/2 yards) into 5x5 inch squares. (This was a little time consuming and was good to do while watching a show!) Then fold in half twice and round the corners to make clover shaped pieces.

Now for the fun... hot glue the pieces to the base and watch it come to life!

Ta da! I love how it works great for Valentines day or could be a Christmas decoration too.


  1. Beautiful! Wish it was on my front door...

  2. Ummm might want to make one myself! Love the burlap idea. So many fun things you could do with that!
