quick & crafty: burlap wreath

i was crafting by daylight on saturday and knocked a few things off my craft to do list.  i stumbled upon craftaholics anonymous and immediately saw a craft i wanted to make for valentines day.  low and behold my burlap heart wreath.

diy how to:

1 : unwind a wire hanger and shape into heart.  [believe it or not, i only found 1 wire hanger in all of my closets, i guess in my last cleaning rampage, i got rid of them all.  anyone watch fringe on fox or lost on abc?  yes, well doesn't this picture of ryan look like two universes colliding...]
2 : cut burlap into approximately 3 inch squares [eye ball it, no need for perfection here] and thread onto wire [make sure you've kept the ends open to slide burlap onto each side].  when you think you have enough on the hanger, add a few more, as the burlap will shift some after you add the ribbon.

ta dah.  all done, what do you think?  so easy, and so cheap.  cost me about $3 for the burlap and i have some leftover for a few more projects.

  11. I love white burlap. I haven’t used it yet, but I am really going to have to go get myself some. I think it would have looked awesome instead of the white fabric I used on my fabric wrapped heart wreath I made!
