BURLAP WREATH

OK, I ran across this idea on some lovely blog...just can't remember which one. Well, You know who you are and thanks so much for the idea! This was so easy! The most difficult part was finding the burlap. It seemed every store in this town was out. I ended up running across some burlap bags and our local TSC and snatched them right up. I used an old wire hanger and cut the burlap into two inch strips then fed them onto the hanger. I turned this house upside down looking for a cute Valentineish ribbon, but no luck. I ended up using a scrap piece of fabric to make the bow. Now if I could only decide on how to tie the bow, where to place the bow and where to hang the wreath. Pathetic I know. The front door
The mirror

What's your vote?

It's so nice! I love it placed on the front door, but it's too Christmas time (to me). So I find it's ok on the fireplace. Cheers from Sicily (Italy), Clara.

Love the wreath. You're the first person I've met who uses burlap as I do. Very clever way of making a wreath I think. I purchased a whole roll of it for $25 at a farm and feed supply store a couple of years ago. I was opening a bed and breakfast in a nearby town and wanted to make long curtains for a couple of the windows. They turned out great - have to watch the fraying though.
