Raggy Burlap Wreath

These are CUTE....

I made these with document print burlap.
How to:

Find a frame around the house (mine was a square one from IKEA)

Cut lots of strips of burlap into 1 to 1 1/2 inch wide by 12 inch long pieces

Start tying them in knots all around the frame.  Make sure to squeeze each strip nice and tight together for a really full wreath.

Once you can not possibly fit any more fabric around your frame - start twisting and turning them (just on the front side) so that the strips lay all raggy and messy like.

You end up with this......

They are rustic and pretty all at once.
If you like the look of this wreath you will like my Muslin Rag Wreath too...
