Frugal Four Season Burlap Wreath

Need a cheap, quick and versatile wreath? This one's for you all you'll basically need is a pool noodle, glue gun, burlap and a needle and thread to make a few easy stitches.
First I measured off the amount of burlap I'd needto cover the noodle and an additional amount for a fringed edge I'd create.
Laying the burlap straps end to end I secured the seams with a glue gun to create one long continuous strip.
Next I wrapped the burlap around the noodle to get the measurement for the seam I would be sewing to make a tube shape to slide over the noodle.
I hand stitched with a simple running stitch the entire length of the burlap strip.
Once the seam was finished I could slide the sewn tube over the noodle and give it a scrunched look.
The ends of the pool noodle were cut on an angle for a better fit when joined. I added a twig from outside to the center hole for extra glue surface and secured all pieces with a glue gun.
For added strength I even had to seal the ends with duct tape, there was a lot of resistance with the noodle wanting to straighten itself out again!馃槃
I used gardening wire to wrap around and create a hanger for my wreath at the back.
I made a boutiner of sortsome and added a safety pin as a means to swap out for the next season.
I made a simple burlap bow and glued it as a permanent look to my wreath but the snowflakes are a temporary seasonal accent as is the boutiner.
A Summer look was a butterfly accent and a bright tulip boutiner.
Fall? An owl and autumn leaves of course and Spring? I'm thinking....eggs in a nest and tree buds about to burst open. The options are endless...I love the versatility of this Project! Thanks for taking a look!

      Thanks so much Wanda, I find that small town life forces you to think outside the box and get creative to make things work for you!

    I love it! I'm not so into Christmas now I know Jesus couldn't have been born in December - it snows in Jerusalem in December and the shepherds would not have been out in the fields - more accurate is Sept/Oct - but I love this wreath, can use it any time of the year, so bright and welcoming! Love it! Thank you!

      The date is not important, just that He came down from heaven to earth to be a sacrifice for our sins. Without Him we would all still be doomed sinners.
