Red, White & Blue Burlap Wreath

3 Materials
I love making new wreaths for my home's front door each season. I often work with burlap, because it it inexpensive and versatile. I wanted to make a wreath for Memorial Day and the Fourth of July, so I decided to make an easy red, white and blue burlap bubble wreath.
All I needed for my wreath was red, white and blue burlap and a wire wreath form. Burlap ribbon is ideal for this project. I couldn't find navy blue burlap ribbon, so instead I made my own navy blue burlap ribbon by cutting burlap into long, 2-inch wide strips.
To make my wreath, I simply tied on loose knots of burlap onto the wire wreath frame to make my burlap "bubbles" for the wreath.
I slid the knots close together on the frame to create each section of color. I started out with blue, and then alternated sections of red and white. This wreath took me about 30 minutes to make. I love how it looks on my home's red door!
Here's another look at the wreath. For more detailed instructions, please stop by my blog, Mom Home Guide.

    How many rolls of burlap? I know you cut your own blue; do you think three will do it? Thx
