One of my "To Do's" has been this burlap wreath that I keep seeing over and over (and over...) So I thought..."this must be a sign!?....Not only do I keep seeing this same wreath, but it's made out of BURLAP, and that's also the name of our blog!"
So I made this wreath...(and mind you, it looks NOTHING like the wreath I "repinned"). The wreath I repinned was MUCH more attractive and MUCH more uniform! I am thinking that the picture I saw on Pinterest had more "layers"...whereas I only used ONE "layer" (which is actually a wire coat hanger as you will see in my pictures below)...and believe it or not, I followed the SAME exact instructions!

Does anyone else have tips to make these???
