We cut each strip 5 inches wide and the entire length of the burlap we had. Melissa taught me a sweet way to cut burlap. After measuring, she pulled a string from the burlap, bunched the burlap up, and then when she pulled it back down, there was a nice straight line to cut on.
We used jewelry wire to fasten the burlap onto the wreath, and continued bunching and fastening around the ring. Here's it after round one:
This is what the back looks like: (messy, yes, but it works)
The front of the wreath
The back of the finished wreath
We added letters to spell out "I DO" since she is using these for her wedding, but with some other decorations, it would look great in a house! In fact...I'm thinking about making one for myself. We'll see :)
I'll try to give you an update in October with how they looked at the wedding!
