DIY Burlap Blues Coastal Beach Wreath
I’ve got the blues today…
The Burlap Blues.
I wanted to share a little something I whipped up while I was down in Southern California on vacation.
My sister and I were feeling crafty one day and we decided to gather up some supplies and see what we could come up with! She had some clean slates (blank wreaths) so I thought I would play with those while she painted some wood tool boxes she made. We popped on the TV, visited and crafted.
You know I tend to lean towards a certain crafty style… so my wreath was, say it with me now… “Cheap & Easy”. I know… but it’s just ME.
I used some scrap fabric. Well, it became scrap fabric. lol. My sis had bags of clothes to donate and I put a few things to good use! White jeans and some pin striped jammie bottoms became my fabric flowers and bunting.
I snipped and ripped to get the frayed edges for the knotted, jute twine bunting.
I tied the twine straight to the grapevine wreath. Super casual.
The flowers are twisted, rolled and glued to a piece of fabric cut in a circle, then adhered directly onto the wreath.
Lastly, it was topped of with a big, fat, burlap bow!
I added a bit of floral/craft wire to the back to act as a hanger… and called it done.
I love the beachy, coastal vibe of the blue and white. It just felt like Summer to me as it came together. I hope you like cheap & easy too!
If so, then you are in the right place. xo Shannon
