Burlap Holiday Wreath

With some Dollar Tree burlap, glue and some crocheting, you can make this fun wreath!
I had a dollar tree 14" foam wreath and got some festive burlap from there, too.


I had to cut the 9 feet in half to make it around, but it worked...just.
The green was burlap ribbon, with the wire edges. Cutting them about 4" I folded it in half at a peak, and put a spot of hot glue down where the pieces meet, the folding over one half on that spot of glue, then putting another spot of glue for the last half.
I needed 20 for around the form.
I trimmed the bottom so the back looked nice, too.
Making sure the full leaf showed, I determined the leaf would be glued about 1/3 back from the edge. You may want to pin them before you glue them just in case some are too wide. Measure twice and glue once?
I had some pretty plaid ribbon and made 6 more petals just the same for the flower. The center is a can lid.
With an H hook, I took some hunter green yarn and made a 5 row circle. Chain 2, make 5 single crochets in the first stitch and join. Chain 1, make another single in that stitch, then 1 in the next. Repeat this around each row, but making a single in two, then three, then four, increasing from 6 then 12 then 18 then 24 then 30. Break off and work in the tail. Glue to the can lid around the edges.


Glue the plaid petals to the back of the lid, making sure the front of the petal is turned facing the crocheted center. I put some thread through a small button, then glued it to the center of the flower.
With a strip of the plaid I made a simple hanger that can be moved to show the flower in the middle bottom or off to the side.


N-JOY!!
