Burlap Bubble Wreath

2 Materials
This is an oldie, but a goodie! This was one of the first wreaths I made to share on the blog and it is still a popular post. So, I thought I'd share with you how to make one of these gorgeous burlap bubble wreaths for your own home!
I had fun getting crafty this weekend for myself. It seems like I am always making something for the kids, such as their birthday or something for school. But, I have been itching to do some home decorating crafts lately and there is this huge burlap craze going on and I wanted to see what all the hype was about... have you seen all the different kinds of burlap at HobLobs? Anyhow, I decided to plunge into an easy burlap craft... a burlap bubble wreath!

The supplies on this wreath were limited to 3 items. A 12" Styrofoam wreath, 2 yards of burlap and pearl headed pushpins.
Now, we'll start making some bubbles! You need about 100 4x4" squares. I cut all of the burlap into 4x4" squares first, then I pinned them all on the wreath. First I cut 4" wide strips, then I cut the strip into 4" squares. It went pretty quickly once I got going on it... but, wow, I did not realize how messy and smelly burlap is! I felt like a dog had shed all over my by the time I was done.
To make the bubbles:

1. First take a 4x4" piece of square fabric.
2. Fold the square in half to make a triangle
3. Fold the right corner to the front of the middle corner of the triangle
4. Fold the left corner to the back of the middle corner of the triangle
Pin one bubble onto the wreath at a time... you will be able to hide the pearl heads on the push pins as you add more bubbles of burlap onto the wreath. Do not cover the back of the wreath with burlap, just the top and sides.
Your wreath will look like this when you are done, it is pretty to hang by itself or you can decorate it with rosette flowers, a beautiful ribbon on the top or with a wooden initial letter. You can really do anything you want with this neutral wreath. I plan to decorate mine with some rosettes at a later time.

    I recently bought some burlap at a thrift store and wondered what I was going to do with it. Now I know! Thanks for the great idea!

    I was wondering, can you take bowls that’s already made put it on there and just cut the ends that’s hanging off and just relap them on each other to fill it up to make it look nice
