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.

Check out the finished product!

Until next time,
