I love patriotic decor! I adore decorating for the 4th of July and enjoying it all Summer long!
Burlap: you love it or hate it. I’m still loving it! It’s just so easy to decorate around, the perfect neutral. I love working with it when it comes to making wreaths! It flows smoothy and looks full! Today I’m sharing with you a beautiful americana burlap bubble wreath!
You will only need a few items for this project! Start off with an 18 inch wire wreath form. I picked up the burlap pictured at Walmart! You will also need scissors and a glue gun. To begin, I started with the blue star burlap. Push it under the first (outer) piece of wire, creating a loop, twist the bottom but be sure to hold into place, and push burlap into the following wire, looping as well. When you get to the third (inner) piece of wire, give it a good couple of twists to hold into place, and repeat technique throughout wreath form. I used the blue star burlap for two sections, using nearly all of it. I used the red striped burlap in three sections, and finished it out with the original burlap. To secure the ends of the burlap, once cut, hot glue into place.
I do usually 3 rows of burlap per section. Three fills it out nicely, and as you push it creates the flow-y effect. To make your wreath appear fuller, simply make your loops bigger. Just keep in mind you will use twice as much burlap, so be prepared!
It has been a true pleasure to have you here today and I hope that you will stop back by again, real soon!!
