Summer Burlap Wreath {Guest Post}

Guest post Friday, woot woot woot!! Please welcome Emily and see her super cute Summer Burlap Wreath! Here’s Emily:

 

Hello all! My name is Emily and I am very excited to be guest blogging on This Silly Girl’s Life today. I blog over at Love, Pasta and a Tool Belt. Today I am sharing with you one of my favorite wreaths that I have made, I’m at 5 and counting. I love making my own wreaths because it is easy and they turn out so cute. I had been wanting to try a burlap wreath for a while and I love how it turned out. So here it goes!

Summer Burlap Wreath

Supplies:

-Roll of burlap

-Foam wreath

-Hot glue gun

-Flowers

Summer Burlap Wreath

Directions:

1. Began wrapping the burlap tightly around the foam wreath. You have to make sure to keep it tight or it will bunch up. At one point I cut the burlap and hot glued it down then began again in order to keep it tightly wrapped.

2. Once you reach the end hot glue the burlap down and hot glue in any other places that seem loose.

3. Cut the stems off the flowers and hot glue them into place on the wreath.

4. In order to hang the wreath I tied the burlap around the wreath, knotting it in the back and then tied a bow to hang it on my wreath hanger.

I’m pretty much loving how cute and summery this looks on my front door. It was really simple to make too.
