Today I'm sharing with you my version of this pin that I stumbled across late one night while, you guessed it, perusing Pinterest.
What You'll Need:
3 Yards of Burlap
1 Wire Coat Hanger
Ribbon/Lace of your choosing
Hot Glue Gun
2 Glue Sticks
What You'll Do:
Start by twisting open your wire hanger. You'll want to leave the "hook" side bent so that you can easily hang it later on and form it into a circle.
Next, cut ALL of your burlap into 3-4" wide strips. You don't necessarily need to measure, just eyeball. And yes, you will use all of your 3 yards.
Take each strip of burlap and fold it back and forth, all while pinching the center, to form your "ruffles."
Continue to pinch the center as you feed your burlap onto the straight end of your coat hanger. The hanger should pierce 2 "ruffles" at a time.
As you continue to fold your burlap and slide it onto the hanger, be sure to slide each section of burlap around to the other side of the hanger.
Continue folding your burlap and adding it to the hanger until you've used up every last strip of burlap.
The next part gets a bit tricky. Now you'll want to close your hanger. If you have a pair of pliers handy, you can certainly wind the hanger back around itself. I hooked the straight end of my hanger around the base of the hooked end and secured it with floral wire.
Use your hot glue gun to randomly glue folds of the burlap together to prevent them from sliding all around the wreath. At this time, you can also evenly distribute your burlap around the hanger so that it doesn't become top heavy and form a more "egg" shape than your wreath shape.
As a little something extra, I formed a pretty little bow from lace trim and use the floral wire to secure it to the burlap. Using the floral wire allows me to change it out with different ribbons/embellishments depending on the holiday or season.
You can see in the picture below that some of my burlap folds are "fold in" while others face "loop in." Once you have all of your burlap on the hanger and the hanger is closed, you can twist and tug at your burlap to give it this "twist and go" appearance.
Once done, hang your wreath from your door hanger using the hanger hook! Again, take a step back and redistribute any burlap pieces that don't look "just right" to you!
I also wonder how long these projects take and that's why I always disclose how much time I spent on them. This project took about an hour and fifteen minutes from start to finish. In terms of cost, all I had to purchase was 3 yards of burlap at $8.79.
So, what have you been "pin-spired" to create lately?
