Toast of Tuesday: DIY Burlap Wreath

One of my first orders of business once we were in the new house was to put wreaths on the front doors. Since we have double doors, I was finding it difficult to come up with something cute for the season, since a monogram wreath would look odd doubled up like that.

I came across this tutorial by my favorite craft store, Michael’s, and I felt like the rustic buslap combined with the chic Parisian print would be perfect for our home. Here’s my twist on the tutorial.

To make two wreaths, I needed 2.5 rolls of plain burlap and one roll of the French printed burlap. I used the medium sized wreath bases that Michael’s sells, since I knew they would fill out a lot.

First, I cut strips of burlap into varying lengths, but most a tad longer than your average magazine.

Next came the fun part: tying knot after knot after knot after knot!

I did one knot of the Parisian burlap for every two to three knots of the plain burlap.

All told, it took me a few hours to complete, because my hands were getting sore from cutting the thick burlap and tying all the knots.

How have you decorated your front door(s) for autumn?

Until next time,
