Square Burlap Wreath
Oh before I forget, I painted my front door a beautiful rich navy. I am loving it, if you look at my earlier posts you will see my door was a shade of pinkish/lavender.
Using the pull string method of marking and cutting the burlap, I cut strips of burlap at 1 inch wide and 16 inches long. I had burlap leftover from previous projects and so I am not for sure how much material the wreath took but I would say you would need at least 1 to 1 & 1/2 yards of burlap, depending on the width of the material. Tie the strips on the wire (this was a 3 wire 17 inch form) randomly on two different wires and sometimes around all three wires. Push the tied strips close together. Since this is a square, you will need to work-in several strips to fill in the space at the corner. The picture in the middle left shows this. I then made a bow using burlap, striped ribbon and a twiggy type ribbon and placed in the corner of the wreath. I strung the letters (BOO) together and tied onto the wreath. I didn't want to glue the letters on as I wanted to use the wreath for Thanksgiving also. Tip: Spray the strips of burlap with spray starch to keep them looking fresh.
