New Year’s Burlap Wreath

With the New Year, many of us are full of hope for better things, for more happiness, better luck, improved health.
Our Crew member, Mona Leonard made a burlap wreath on which to display her 2018 wishes.

I thought it would be nice to make a wreath for your hopes in 2018 so I took out a Dollar Store Christmas wreath and my neverending stash of natural burlap and started playing. – says Mona.

Mona used the following materials:
Wreath frame
Canvas Corp Burlap by the Yard
Canvas Corp Cord Rope Natural
Tattered Angels High Impact Paint – Black
String, Ribbon
Pipe Cleaners
Star decoration, Chipboards
Scissors, Paintbrush

I couldn’t find a wire wreath frame so I got this garland wreath at the Dollar Store; I cut all the garland off the wreath leaving me with a empty wreath to play around with.

I started by cutting my burlap into 4 inch strips, then added a layer of burlap all around my wreath and also on the inside ring.

This is where the fun starts… I folded my burlap in two and made loops in all three spaces, gave it a twist then started a second row doing three rows then tying it with a piece of twine.

I did that all around the wreath until it was completely finished.

Now that my wreath was finished, I needed to decorate it.
I started by making a bow – I then took the stems of my bow and tied them using some pipe cleaners every 4 inches around the wreath.

I glued a few flower stems here and there to give the wreath a bit of a contrasting bright color.

I used some Chalkboard paint to paint my rectangle cardstock and white marker to write my new year’s key words on my little blackboards. I also used Tattered Angels High Impact Paint in black to paint my star.

For the finishing touches, I glued all my blackboard words into place.

As always, Mona as created a beautiful piece of rustic home decor. To see more of her work, make sure to stop by her blog and Instagram.

Happy Friday crafting!!!
