DIY Burlap Wreath

Hi Friends,
I’m thinking about doing craft week once a month. I absolutely adore crafting, creating things with my hands and pushing my creative limits. I feel creative, strong and brave when I try a new techniques, like this next tutorial.

My candle holders turned out excellent. I can’t stop running my hand up and down the wax covered bottles. They look cool and feel soft yet hard, if that makes any sense. 

Today’s craft is a burlap wreath. I was intimated by this project but I believe I can accomplish anything and tried it anyway. Of course it was easy as pie and fun. My material calculations where wrong and I ran out of burlap. Good thing for me I purchased another roll, which came I handy. If you look closely you can see the different colors, but who really cares? I know I don’t.

I like this craft, but I also feel as if it’s missing something. I’m not sure of I’m going to post this project on my other social media accounts. Lucky for all of you it made it to this blog.
