Simple, No Cost Burlap Wreath

I got the inspiration for this on another blog...but for the life of me I can't remember where, and I wanted to give thanks where thanks is due...so if this was your idea, thank you so much!!!

I didn't take any before or during pics, just the afters. And, I didn't use a wreath form because I wanted to use things I already had, and I didn't have one of those, so I just cut up a piece of cardboard to use as my wreath form. All I really did was hot glue in a somewhat planned out hodge-podge order circular scraps of fabric (which I already had cut out from a previous project) and glued them, along with some burlap circles, to my wreath form. Most of you probably have scaps of random fabric at home, a bit of left-over burlap, a cardboard box you can sacrifice and lots of hot glue---this is the perfect project for that combination!!!

For now my wreath is just hanging on my son's closet door, but I would like to add a wooden "J" to it and then display it somewhere in his "big boy" room...which right now is currently decorated as the nursery, and will be updated whenever we move him out of the crib...which I am really not in a hurry to do. Anyways, I still wanted to make this wreath because the idea was so cute, and it can always wait to be properly displayed!

Bye for now!


  1. Cute Gracie! Love the colors and the fact that it was 0 bucks! Awesome! Are these the colors you'll use for his "big boy" room? Check out Holly Mathis Interiors...she had a guest post in the last day or so that has colors almost just like that for a 2 year old bedroom. Great ideas....

    Love you,


  2. Grace,
    Soooo CUTE...luv the rick rack! Hope you have a great day:)


  3. What a lovely wreath and so great that you were able to use things you already had on hand. I've been doing a lot of that lately. Can't seem to throw anything away and yet can't keep up with all the stuff I am storing away to craft with. I love all the little vignettes you've created around your home. They are so sweet and pretty, each and every one. Hope you are having a wonderful day. :) Tammy

  4. This is adorable! I love the bright colors you used - fabulous!
