Today while I was in the basement looking for our galvanized bucket to put a few mums in, I found my roll of burlap lying on the floor. (It must have dropped out of one of the boxes Mr. R was moving around.) The burlap got me thinking, so I poked around the Internet for a few ideas of what to do with it. I saw several projects where the burlap was threaded onto some wire to make a wreath.
It was after I started threading the burlap the first time that I realized there wasn't going to be enough to go all the way around. That's when I got the idea to incorporate the pumpkin garland which, to this point, was in the living room above two pictures. Guess I will be buying more of that pumpkin garland.
This wreath is super simple to make. All you need is 3 inch wide burlap, some pumpkin garland (I used two strands of garland) and a wire clothes hanger.
Straighten out the wire hanger and then thread the burlap onto the wire in an alternating fashion, folding the burlap back onto itself.
Every few inches wrap the pumpkin garland onto the wire in between the burlap.
Then just make a loop with each end of the wire and hook the two together to close the circle.
Now isn't this the most ironic thing??? What was lying on the basement floor this morning is now hanging on my front door this afternoon! You just never know where inspiration is going to come from next!!
I hope you are all enjoying a beautiful September day!
Update...I received a few notes asking me where I purchased the 3 inch burlap. I bought it at Michael's craft store last spring. I am sure they still have tons of it given the burlap craze right now.
