Burlap Ruffle Wreath with Blue Metal Barn Star

Burlap Ruffle Wreath with Blue Barn Star
 
I love working with burlap. It is extremely versatile and gives a really nice rustic look and it's great to hang year round.

For this wreath I started with a 14" styrofoam wreath form. I first wrapped the entire wreath with a light brown yarn to give it a nice finished look even from the back.

I hand traced and cut out 4" burlap circles to make the ruffles. Each ruffle in individually attached to the wreath with a spot of fabric glue and a straight pin to keep it nice and secure.

I left the raw, unfinished edges because I really like the natural look of the burlap. That being said, this wreath with shed a little from the frayed edges. Also, this wreath would best be placed in an area away from the elements. It is also narrow enough to fit between a storm door and your front door or you can just hang it inside!!

I attached a 12" blue metal barn star to the center of the wreath to complete the look.
