Mantel Decor Day #7: Burlap Rose Wreath

I really like how this wreath turned out, it took me a while because I was designing it as I went {about an hour, thank goodness the baby was sleeping!}.

I love making rosettes.  It is the first time that I did it with burlap...my new favorite thing to play with!

I started out with a wire hanger and formed it into a circle.  Then I weaved the burlap strip in and out {the stuff used to upholster chairs}.  I found it in the trimming section at HobLob.

Here is a link to where I learned how to make the Roses.  It was on a Studio 5 show from Salt Lake City:  Urban Corsage.  I used tacky glue & glued as I went around.

I weaved the flowers on the wire and then hot glued everything to keep it from sagging.

I was inspired to do this wreath when I saw a burlap wreath on Where the Heart is Blog found HERE.
Enjoy...I did!!
