Burlap Door Wreath

I hadn’t realized before how much I love wreaths & door hangings. I have recently started a new obsession. It is a site called Pinterest. Basically it is a way to save and organize your bookmarks & craft ideas. If you want to look at my “Pins” click here.
So, I saw this amazing wreath at Jones Design Company– this blog is amazing! So many great, great ideas. {I digress.} So I had to try. Here is what I made:

The tutorial is here. I know you want to make one – how could you not!
I will give my few (very few) suggestions on what I will change next time.
First – I’ve never worked with burlap before – it is messy! I would lay something down before I start to cut.
Second – I would use a 4″ strip for the back ruffle and a 3″ strip for the front ruffle. I like to see the back a bit more and ended up trimming mine.
The tutorial really is wonderful and I LOVE the end result.
My door looks so pretty.

Here is a close up of the flowers. The best part is they are all pinned on so I can change them out for the different seasons. Love it!
Need some more ideas? I am already planning on my next wreath. Here are a few I have been inspired by:
This is where I got the idea for the removable flowers. Genius!
