I keep forgetting that it's only the beginning of June. 

Here in Arizona it's been over a hundred degrees for weeks now, and I can't believe for most of the country, spring is just ending.

But either way, I'm showing you today how to make a beautiful, super easy, Spring-ish burlap wreath.


Here are the materials you'll need:

1/2 a yard of tan burlap

1/2 a yard of white washed burlap

1/2 a yard of bone burlap

1/2 yard white cotton or muslin

fabric scissors 

metal hanger


Step 1:

Cut your fabric into strips that are about 4 fingers width wide.

Step 2: 

Fold the strips of fabric, accordion or pleated style 


Step 4: This step is only necessary for the cotton/muslin fabric. Since the wire isn't able to go through the material without a hole, you need to snip one.

Fold the accordion fabric strip in half and snip a small hole through all the layers. 


It will look like this.


Step 5: Push the wire through the hole you snipped.


Step 6: Fold the burlap accordion style as you did with cotton/muslin.

You won't need to snip a hole for the wire to go through with the burlap.

Since it's so loosely woven, it's really easy to slide the wire through the fabric.


Step 7: Alternate the strips of burlap and fabric as you desire, making sure the wreath is full.

Step 8: Bend the wire into a circle and shape it till you achieve the look you want.

Step 9: Twist the ends of the wire securely together and use wire cutters to remove the excess.


Step 10: Using the remaining cotton or burlap strips, tie a loop around the twisted ends of the wire.

Step 11: Hang and enjoy!
