Shabby Burlap Wreath!

Happy Friday!

How about some fall decor today?! 

Here is my very first wreath!

This was super easy but VERY messy!  I was covered in burlap fuzz when I finished.

Here's what you'll need:
2 yds of burlap fabric, cut into 1 1/2 inch strips.
various lengths: 13 - 16 inches 

Styrofoam wreath ring, 14 inch.
Ribbon for bow & other embellishments.

Rustic pumpkin stamped & embossed
with Joy's Life fall stamps,
(It's All Fall)
Reverse side!

Simply tie each burlap strip around the wreath ring, alternating lengths.  Pull your knots tightly & bunch together for fullness.  
Give it a try, I think you'll be pleased!

I'm part of a wonderfully talented group of Ladies who are showcasing beautiful Autumn Wreaths today!  Come be inspired!

I LOVE everything about this wreath!!! the copper color of the ribbon, the way the ribbon matches the pumpkin, the "two-way" wreath, and the fuzziness of the burlap! Great job Maria!! I bet your scrap area was a mess afterwards! I know mine sure is and I didn't even have a messy wreath!
