DIY Burlap Rag Wreath {Tutorial}

Making a cute wreath for my apartment door has been on my to do list for a while, and I finally got around to it!! I saw the inspiration for this wreath at Canton, and instantly knew that's what I wanted my wreath to look like. So I purchased the materials and got started! This project took about 30 minutes. It's so easy to do, and I hope this tutorial helps! 

Materials needed:
- Wreath form with branches
- Burlap 
- Ribbon 
**I had 10 feet of burlap and ribbon but it was not all used. The amount needed depends on how big you want your scraps.

Step 1: Bring all of the branches on the wreath form to the front.

Step 2: Cut your burlap pieces and cut the ribbon the same length.

Step 3: Place ribbon on top of burlap piece and bunch them in the middle. 

Step 4: The branches on the wreath form will be in groups of 2, split 2 of them apart, place the burlap/ribbon bunch in the middle, and twist the branches around it. {No picture of this part-sorry} Continue doing this until each group of branches has a burlap/ribbon bunch twisted to it. The end result should look like this:

The double T I also bought at Canton at one of the metal shops! I painted it with acrylic paint and tied it on with fishing line!

Ta Da! Easy peasy! (-:
