Loopty Lou~ Burlap Wreath
Here is my first ever burlap wreath. I am naming it the…….
“Loopty Lou Burlap Wreath.” I know a few months back there were many MANY floating around blog land, originally starting with JenJen of TatorTots and Jello… THIS IS MY VERSION. I had no idea what I was doing, and I just went with it.
first you will start by wrapping a fairly large piece of cut burlap around your Styrofoam wreath. Just hot glue where you start and finish. Or where need be. 😉
I used my scissors to rough up the edges of the paper. Just gently rub the scissors along the paper shaving away at it.
to make the fabric look more gathered, I would add hot glue to the piece it would be glued to, and then after a few seconds… (its hot glue) I would pinch the material around the hot glue and it would gather it up.
I used Jute to thread through the button wholes. Then I just tied it in a knot, and hot glued it to the flowers to complete the look.

you will just loop and hot glue. I gently pressed down on the area I glued. My fingers had lots of dry hot glue to pick off when I was done…. YIPPIE!

Now I will admit I am not un-happy with my FIRST ever burlap wreath, but I am not jumping to the moon and back either. I am however, pleased and that matters.
