Burlap Wreaths and More Burlap Wreaths

Hi to all of you lovelies out there!

I am like the energizer bunny, I hardly ever sit still and I am always planning my next project, event, trip, decor change, etc…  One of my hubby’s nicknames for me is “The Planner”; I know I must drive the poor man crazy at times! 😉  So, when I was gathering pictures for this blog post, I surprised myself with the sheer number of wreaths that I’ve made this past year .  I’ve created some of these for my own use here in our home, and I’ve created a few to give as gifts. My plan for this blog entry is to just *show* you the different wreaths, if you would like to know how to make one you can reference one of my earlier blog posts here. 🙂

So here goes:

This one hangs in our “mud room”, I hung it on the door leading to the garage–I added that wreath hanger that you see in the picture on the left, it is awesome.  You can find it online here:

I made this one for one of our guest bedrooms…

I threw this one together because I wanted a little something more for on that corner shelf:

I made this one for a dear friend who loves owls:

I made this one for a friend…She asked me to make her something to hang on her Mom’s nursing home room’s door:

I made this one for another one of our guest bedrooms, I actually utilized an old Boyd’s Bear Bunny that had been stuck in a box in my basement for years:

I hung this one in the laundry room…:)

I made this one to go with the family reunion decor (red and white gingham, gerber daisies, and mason jars):

This one was to add to an Easter grouping that I had put together out on the front porch:

I made this one to be hung on the front door from Memorial Day through July 4th. You’ll also see our pups in one of the pictures below. The Newfoundland dogs names are Sophie and Samson (brown), and the Golden’s name is Gracie. I love them like crazy! ❤

And last but not least, I just made this one the other day.  This is for a very dear friend of mine who lives in another State.  My hubby is constructing a box for me to pack it up in for shipping…it is 30″ in diameter (as wide as some front doors, in other words, it is huge). 🙂

Well, that does it for the burlap wreaths that I’ve made in the past year.  I’ve also made some grapevine and deco mesh wreaths as well–subjects for another blog. 🙂 I hope that one of these wreaths will inspire one of you to try to make one for yourself. You can do it! And I’m right here if you have any questions at all, feel free to leave me any questions in the comments.  Happy Crafting!! ❤

    Thank you Arlynn for sharing your beautiful Creations!! I had so much fun making a burlap wreath for my mom for Christmas. Itreally was as easy as you kept saying, all your great instructions and supply list made this project a joy to create!! When I carried the wreath in my moms house she said “WOW who is that for” she Absoultely loves her wreath! I can’t wait to make another one… I have found myself picking up a little bit of this and that at Hobby Lobby to build a stock pile of wreath making supplies… Thank you so much for sharing your love of crafting.

  2. OH my goodness Billie! Thank you so much for all of your sweet words!! And thank you for sending me a picture of the gorgeous wreath that you made for your Mom. I bet she was blown away when she laid her eyes on that creation! (I’ll share it with everyone else in a little blog entry very soon). It touches my heart that you (who are an amazing quilter and designer) took the time to try to make a wreath…AND you did a great job!! You GO girl!! ❤
