The Burlap Wreath Gets a Little Christmas On!


You may remember this burlap wreath that I
made in October. I love the simplicity
and country style of it. The burlap 
looks as if it were cut right from the
feed sack! Perfect for those
harvest-y Autumn days
 here at the farm.

Now that Christmas is approaching and the
days are shorter and drab,
I wanted to add just a touch
 of festive color to cheer it
(and me) up! 


I used some plaid wired ribbon
that I already had. I
 made several little 'picks' of
the ribbon fashioned into
loops to mimic the looped
burlap, and fastened here and there.
Then I added a larger gathering
to the center of the burlap bow.


It still wanted something.
?
I have had this little German Glitter Banner
that I had recieved from Madai at
Wren Cottage a couple of years ago, and
thought it might be just the addition it needed.

The glitter is a bit tarnished with age now
but I think it added just the right touch!
Simple ~ Country 
Just like me! 


Yep! I like it
It brings me a bit of JOY!

This is absolutely adorable...and so festive! I love the "country" look it gives off. I'm going to have to go back October and see how you made the burlap wreath...I just acquired a whole box of burlap while helping to clean out at my mom's. Thanks so much for sharing!

Sweet blessings,
Laura
