Welcome to Week 11 of "Hey, That's Pin-tastic!" If you've been following along with ILYMTC lately, you would know that we are still in California. I almost can't believe it myself and it feels like we've been gone forever.
Since I've been doing things like wine-tasting and playing NorCal tourist, I haven't necessarily had the time to get my Pinterest on. That means that today's post comes to you from last February! As always, be sure to follow the official "Hey, That's Pin-tastic" pin board and thanks so much for checking out today's Pin-tastic posts!
I promise you this wreath is super simple and will only take an hour to an hour and a half of your time from start to finish! Unless you're like me and have to spend extra time chasing down your Toddler who repeatedly runs off with the burlap, the scissors, the cut squares, etc.
Start by cutting your burlap into long strips. Ideally, you'll want your strips to be at least 5 inches wide. Never one to measure, I eyeballed the width and went to cutting. Once you have your strips laid out, you can begin cutting your individual squares. I found it easiest to layer two pieces of burlap strips together and cut my squares that way.
Aim for squares that are at least 5"x5".
Once you have a pretty little stack of squares, the fun part begins!
1. Fold your square into fourths. You know, into "half and half again."
2. Round the edges of your square so that they'll gather into a pretty rosette-type form.
3. Gather (or bunch) your square together to create that pretty rosette form and begin pinning down to your wreath. Be sure to pin at the fold of the fabric. Note, if you so choose, you can wrap your wreath with a few strips of burlap prior to starting, although it's not necessary. The pins are "full" enough that once against a wall (or door!) you aren't able to see the back of the wreath.
5. Keep pinning.
5. Continue to pin your gathered ruffles around the wreath. As your wreath fills in, you'll need to step back and fill in gaps/even out the sides. Once complete, go ahead and pin your chosen ribbon or lace to the back of the wreath and hang!
