The Christmas decor is down and it's time to fill in spaces with something for the new year. I had a pine wreath on this mirror for Christmas and liked the way it looked so I wanted to replace it with another wreath. I didn't have what I wanted on hand but I did have burlap. I always have burlap. I have seen wreaths similar to these on blogs so I decided to whip one up for myself!
It's VERY simple- that's why I was capable of making one, so here's how it's done:
1. Get a wire hanger and shape into a circle. If your hanger you find is anything like mine was, this is easier said than done.
2. Cut 4-6 inch strips. I started with 6" but decided I liked the 4" better. I used about 5 strips that were about 3 feet long.
3. Poke hanger through burlap in about 3"folds and scrunch down.
4. Keep poking and scrunching, poking and scrunching... and poking and scrunching. Then just when you think you might be done you most likely need to poke and scrunch just a little more! I then hung with my favorite Ballard Designs check ribbon.
