The wreath is new, but the grapevine and burlap around the door have been there since last Christmas! You may remember seeing it in our Christmas on the Porch post and again in our Painted Bunnies and Eggs on the Porch. So, I thought, why not just use it all year long? So here it is making its appearance again.
Since I wanted to use burlap on this wreath, I purchased a burlap table cover at Carolina Pottery in Columbia, SC for a really good price. I cut it into 5 strips that were 14 inches in width. (You would probably need a yard and a half of burlap material to do the same. )
Since my sister-in-law Jean has made a lot of wreaths with decorative mesh, I asked her to come over to get me started. She just tied on the burlap onto the form with a pair of the ties and poofed it up and then tied that part on.
Well, it doesn’t look like much at this point. What you have to do is play with the poofs to hide the ties and tuck the stray pieces of burlap underneath the wreath form. My other sister-in-law Jean (yes, I have two!) helped me pick out a cute metal decoration this past Sunday when we were all shopping at Carolina Pottery.
