Making a fresh wreath for my kitchen door is long, long overdue. And although I’ve seen many that are fabulous, one caught my eye last week, so I went that route with mine. A simple jute twine wrapped circle embellished with a burlap flower.
I started with a heavy cardboard box and cut circles in the front and back panels, trimmed out a center circle and glued them together.
Wrapped the cardboard form with jute twine, squeezing the outside edge wrappings together closely.
Finally, add your embellishment of choice. The one I saw had colorful paper flowers, and while those are indeed my favorite, I opted for a single flower with large burlap petals and added a tiny bit of sparkle with a few beads.
I cut a small square of cereal box cardboard and glued a square of burlap (same size) over it. Then glued the flower to the burlap side of the square and glued the cardboard side of the square to the wreath. Since the petals are merely sewn to each other with a couple of stitches, it needed more structural support.
Hope you had a lovely weekend and thank you for reading 🙂
