Burlap Love

I'm so excited that I finally have some time to myself! After a long week I can sit down with a glass of wine and get crafty. I'm so looking forward to completing some projects tonight. But before I started crafting I wanted to share a pic of a wreath I made.

As you may know Pinterest is my newest obsession. I've seen a bunch of different wreath tutorials so I decided to try one. With Spring around the corner I thought I'd make a cute little wreath to spruce up the entry.

I used a 12" straw wreath as the base. I bought this type instead of the styrofoam because it was $2 less but after working with all that straw I will definitely be splurging the extra 2 bucks next time! :P I hot glued one end of a burlap ribbon to the wreath and just wrapped it around. I hot glued the other end of the burlap to the backside of the wreath. Then I just cut and glued these cute flowers and added the leaves........and voila!

I love how it turned out. It's so springy and simple. I may add a tag or some ribbon just to embellish it slightly. I can't wait to make another one!
