DIY Burlap Wreath {{using a wire hanger}}

Happy Friday!

I’m amped for this weekend for all the normal reasons but one of the main reasons being my sis-in-law and I will be going to the Country Living Fair! I wasn’t able to go last year so now I’m anxioussss! I’ll be sure to take lots of pictures and share them with you all. {of course :-)}

So as you know Fall is overtaking my home and I couldn’t be more in love with it. {I admit I do rush the holidays/seasons slightly uh, hum..a lot. guilty.as.charged.} In light of Fall, I was wanting to make a wreath for my front door. I try to make one for every season and I felt like a burlap wreath was the perrrrfect choice for Fall! I didn’t have any styrofoam wreaths on hand and it was late at night when I made this {only time alone…when everyone is snoozin ;-)} so I decided to try something new. I used a hanger and to my surprise…. it worked perfect!

Okay, so here’s the tidbits:

YOU NEED:

Burlap Fabric {I had approximately 1 yard}

Wire Hanger

Scissors

Measuring Tape

Ribbon {optional}

HOW TO:

FIRST, I took an old wire hanger I found and unraveled it and shaped it into a circle {leaving the top open}.

SECOND, I cut TWELVE  2 in x 6 in strips out of the burlap fabric. {Keep in mind you can do more or less depending on how full you would like it.}

THIRD, I folded my strips into fours and slid each one on the hanger until it was full.

{{half way there!}}

FOURTH, twist the ends of the hanger together making your circle complete.

{{optional}} FIFTH, I added a ribbon on mine to make it even cozier.

SIXTH, hang it! :)

Love it! It makes for the perfect Fall wreath.

Enjoy your weekend!
