Easy Peasy Spring Wreath

One of my quirks? I love wreaths. I blame my mom, who instilled in me the necessity of having a wreath adorning every exterior door of your home when I was young. I even have a whole section of pinterest devoted to wreaths I like.

 So last night, after a quick google search, I decided to use my burlap remnants to make a spring wreath like this tutorial from WhereTheHeartIs.This was about as easy as a project can be. I took an old wire hanger, straightened it and made it into a circle, and then started cutting strips of burlap. I folded it and stuck each piece through the hanger. I didn't have quite enough burlap to make a big wreath, but I like it anyway. I didn't have any ribbon, so I went to Michael's and bought the green and yellow you see in the pictures and a black and white check that I decided not to use. Both cost $2.50, so the total for this little project was about $5. Cute, inexpensive, quick!

This is so cute. I am new to your blog. Glad I found it. I have been reading over your posts and really like them. Love Pioneer Woman but didn't know that she was getting her own show. Wow she has really come a long way!
