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!
