I GAVE IN TO THE BURLAP CRAZE

After seeing burlap used in a variety of ways the last couple of years I wasn't easily convinced.  It usually doesn't take me too much time to embrace a new concept for decorating and crafting but the burlap just didn't speak to me...that is until I found this cute wreath HERE.  She has a really great tutorial on how to make this.
She used a simple metal wreath base (which I just happened to have in my crap craft stash.  I found a 10 yard roll of burlap at Michael's that had the edges finished so it wouldn't fray for  $6.99.

 Here is my completed burlap wreath...............but wait there is more!

I had played around with some felt and made these flowers a couple of months ago and wasn't quite sure what I wanted to do with them.


They worked perfect for my fall wreath.  I also tucked in a few fall silk leaves.

Here is a shot without the leaves.  I think I like it better with the leaves.


And there you have my very first burlap craft.  Now fall needs to hurry up and get here so I can put it on my front door.

Ya, that's speaking to me. I did burlap for a couple of Christmas things last year and I loved it.

I love your wreath! I feel the same about burlap, it grows on you sooner or later. I also wish Fall would hurry and get here. I'm looking forward to cooler weather! Have a great weekend! :)

Ooh, the wreath with the leaves looks great. I love fall. It's going to be awhile for us though. Today's expected temp is up to 112- 113*F,

Really cute! I have loved burlap for years, even before it became the huge craze. Maybe it's time I made a new wreath for the front door!
