Burlap Wreath

Maybe after the holidays I will get off my letter kick. I just cannot seem to stop using them in my craft projects. I am all about having easy and cost effective holiday gifts. I made this easy wreath for my mother-in-law. Don't worry she will not see it on my blog.  I grabbed a wire wreath, mod podge,  1.5 wired burlap ribbon from Amazon, a paper mache V from Hobby Lobby, furniture tacks from Jo-Ann's, and a piece of scrap fabric that I had gotten at Jo-Ann's for another project.

I simply cut the strips of burlap and twisted them around the metal wreath form.  It was quick and easy. I did it during a episode of Mickey Mouse Clubhouse. You can tell I really need a distraction while watching that. Then I mod podged the fabric that I cut to the paper mache letter, which I did later on while watching Top Chef.  I am trying to get a lot done during television shows. Once it was dry I attached the tacks to the letter.  

The total cost for this wreath was approximately $30, which was much less expensive than the wreaths I had my eye on in the Etsy shops I had checked out.

Thanks for stopping by!
