Fall Burlap Wreath n' Giveaway~


I know, I know, this is a bit late, but still worth sharing!
This project takes almost a full yard of burlap (in one color),
1/2 yard in another color and  
1 1/2 yards of ribbon {for a pop of color}!
 I used two types of ribbon, one was sheer and the other with texture to blend a bit with the burlap!

When I first started I didn't think it was going to be as full as I wanted it, but with each strip you tie gets fuller and fuller! I cut each strip anywhere from 2 to 3 inches wide and the lengths varied, but the majority was 10 inches.

I think you could add some kind of embellishment too, but I kept it super simple! The next one  has a bit more pop with 3 colors and jingle bells! {hint~hint}

I grabbed a simple wire wreath at Ben Franklin ($4), fabric at JoAnn's ($2.40/yd with 40% off coupon) and I had the orange ribbon (under $2), so for just over $10 you have a super cute wreath for your house or like me, the front door!

Thanks for visiting!!
Here's a little something I'm giving away over at One Artsy Mama!!
(Along with a gift card!!)
Go join the fun!! Good luck!!
