White Burlap Heart Wreath with TUTORIAL
Check out my door decor for Valentine's Day.V-day is one of my fav holidays, for real. You'll find out why a little later, in another post. Anyways, this is the project I'm doing with a craft group at church in a couple weeks. It's really easy and cheap to make. It only costs $3.50 to make one of these. And you can do it with red burlap as well for a fun look. I'm all about using different colors of burlap, can you tell?
Using your wire cutters, cut two 18" lengths of wire and bend into half heart shapes.
Use pliers to twist wire ends together. Do not twist together the bottom ends. You will do that at the end. You may not need pliers depending on how pliable your wire is.
Cut your burlap into 2.5" strips.
Thread your burlap onto you wire so that it looks like this:
I threaded it onto the wire about every 3" or so. I varied the lengths to give it more texture.
Add burlap until your heart looks full.
Twist the bottom wires together and bend back to hide the ends.
Rearrange burlap loops to cover the ends.
