I love wreaths. Especially when I've made it myself. After adorning the front of my house with three burlap wreaths the other week I put my Christmas berry wreath up on the door. All of the sudden my house looked like it was covered in circles. Is was definitely off.
Then I remembered a picture I had pinned on Pinterest some time ago.
I wasn't a big fan of the color ribbon used, so since it's turning into a burlap Christmas around here I thought I might as well keep going with it! :)
Here's how mine turned out!
It looks much better and breaks up the other three circles hanging on the house.
So here's what I started with:
Burlap cut into strips
Cinnamon pinecones from Hobby Lobby
Big jingle bells from Hobby Lobby
Hot glue gun
I thought I'd change mine up even more and add a nice jingle to my door with the bells. But after trying it out they just didn't look right or lay right on the door. Oh well!
I glued the burlap onto the top of each pinecone and laid them out on the floor.
This was before I realized that the bells weren't working:)
Once I had a nice bushel of pinecones going I took them to the door to see if I should use more or less. 11 ended up being the perfect amount.
I laid the burlap strips on top of each other nicely in a pile then took it to the door and cut them to about the length I wanted.
I had a Command hook already on my door that I wanted to reuse so I folded over the burlap strips and just pushed the hook into the gaps in the burlap.
Then I tied some twine around it into a bow!
And there you have it! It only took an hour or two. I may have been interrupted a few times by a little boy and little girl though ;)
You'll have to excuse the color of the door. It's actually just primed, we had a new door installed a few weeks ago and we ordered it unfinished to save some cash. Unfortunately it won't be warm enough to paint it until next spring :( But I'm just SUPER happy to have that old green monster from 1950 finally gone. We had no choice but to buy a new one when it stopped closing/locking!! Can you say safety hazard?!
Here it is with some more afters for you!
