Burlap Wreath

Hi its Crafty Tuesday at What's Scrappin with a DIY Burlap Wreath to enhance your door. These is the easiest and cheapest way to spruce up your front door, you can create one for every season and holiday.

Styrofoam wreath
3 yards of burlap ribbon
paper flowers
text papers
vintage buttons
hot glue gun
home tag
pearl pin

How to:
To began, hot glue the end of the ribbon to the wreath and then begin wrapping it. Carefully wrap the ribbon around the foam, slightly overlap each "layer" so you can not see the foam wreath. Hot glue the last piece of ribbon to the back of the wreath. Now the fun part, began decorating. I used my MS butterfly punch from old text paper to create 7 butterflies and inked the edges. I used a dab Crafter's Pick glue to hold them in place. I inked the edges of a 7 gypsies HOME tag, and attach a pearl pin before gluing it down. Then I arranged the 6 paper flowers above and around the tag adhered them with a glue gun. I added a couple vintage buttons as the center for the flowers. You can atttach a small piece of ribbon (with glue gun) to the back of the wreath in order for it to hang on the door. You can create your design and change it up for the seasons! Enjoy....
