Fun with Burlap

I needed a new wreath for my front door so I decided to try one of those looped burlap wreaths. You don't need many supplies for this one. 

Wire wreath frame (I think this is 16in)
Burlap ribbon (I had 2 15ft rolls)
Accent ribbon
Embellishments (I chose burlap flowers and a metal J) 

There's lots of tutorials online so I'm not going to reinvent the wheel. It took me a few tries to get "the twist" down but once I figured that out and got into a rhythm it was pretty easy. I could've used a little bit more burlap but I made it work. 

I love the way the chevron burlap ribbon looks along the edges and isn't that metal J just darling? I tied a simple bow and hot glued it on with the J and flowers. Here's the finished product: 

Try making one! They're pretty and you can add so many things to them to make each different!
