So it's September and my wreath I put up for the 4th of July was still on my door until yesterday! I haven't been ready to put a Halloween wreath up yet so I came up with a wreath that would help me accept the reality that summer is almost over. I went through a phase where I loved making yarn wreaths then I switched to making burlap wreaths and for this one I thought I would combine the two.
The Supplies: Straw wreath, burlap ribbon, and yarn. I purchased all the supplies at Hobby Lobby. These items are often 40 percent off.
Step 1: Unwrap the yarn. I really love this yarn! Soft and striped!
Step 2: Keeping the straw wreath wrapped in plastic you'll want to wrap the yarn around the wreath and tie it in a knot.
Once you have the yarn in a knot around the wreath you are ready for the next step.
Step 3: This step is the perfect time to watch a movie or catch up on your favorite show. You want to wrap and wrap and keep wrapping the yarn around the wreath until the straw is completely covered. I did this while finally watching the last episode of Downton Abbey Season 3. I have been putting it off for so long.
Step 4: Cut enough burlap ribbon to tie a large bow and wrap it around like the picture above.
Step 5: Tie the burlap in a knot then a bow.
Step 6: Cut the ends of the bow so they are even.
Step 7: Hang your wreath! Depending on what type of hook you'll be hanging the wreath with you can opt to use ribbon or not. I used some gray ribbon and you are done.
