It’s Friday!! Whoo hoo! The weekend is almost here!
It’s no secret that I love pink. I also love to make wreaths and it’s been a while since my last one so this week I made this… my burlap fringed flower wreath.
Here’s my inspiration for this project. These lovely burlap fringed flowers that Gail over at Purple Hues & Me made. Aren’t they fabulous?
I admired Gail’s flowers so much that I left her a comment asking if she knew if they made burlap in pink, and I believe I mentioned that I lived quite far away from any real craft store. (I thrift most of my craft supplies.)
Honestly, I didn’t even know there was such a thing as coloured burlap until I saw Gail’s gorgeous flowers.
A couple of weeks later a package of pink burlap arrived in my mail box… from Gail. How wonderful is that!! I was so excited to receive it. I couldn’t wait to get started!
I knew I was going to put my burlap flowers on a wreath, but I wasn’t sure exactly how. I started with this thrifted $1 straw wreath.
Here are my three finished flowers. Gail has a wonderful tutorial here if you’d like to make some yourself.
I hot glued some thrifted earrings for the centres.
Then I went through my Christmas stash for this pearly garland and just draped it here and there on the wreath, securing the ends with hot glue.
And that’s it!!
These burlap flowers were so much fun to make, and I have enough pink burlap for a few more projects. I’ve been working on another one that isn’t quite ready yet.
Thanks so much to Gail!! Whose thoughtfulness reinforced my belief that this blogging community is filled with such wonderful people.
If you don’t know Gail pop over to Purple Hues & Me for a visit. She’s so creative and talented, and I guarantee she’ll inspire you with her projects.
Thanks so much for reading! Have a beautiful day!
