Cream and Chocolate Brown Burlap Wreath

My sweet cousin Donita and I were chatting on the phone earlier last week, and in conversation, she asked me to make her a wreath (that she said she’d pay for…uh huh, like I’d ever accept payment from her…haha…the girl had a little brain hiccup when she suggested that obviously…lol). 😉  First of all, here is a picture of me (in the middle), my cousin Stacey (on the right), and our cousin Donita (on the left):


We are 3 of 7 first cousins on our Dads side of the family.  I am the “middle” child of the family as Donita is a little bit older and Stacey is a little bit younger than I am…I won’t say how many years going either direction. 😉  Suffice is to say, it is easy for us to remember how old any of us are.

Okay, I digress, back to Donita’s and my conversation.  I asked her what she wanted her wreath to look like, and she told me that she has been redoing some of her decor to match some furniture that she just got, her main colors are chocolate brown and cream…Ooooooh, I just love that color combination!  Okay, so we know that I had just discovered cream colored burlap when I created Stacey’s Cream on Cream wreath — the one I gave her for Christmas…Here is a picture of how that one turned out:


Donita also like how I arranged the bow and accent pieces on my large Valentine’s Day wreath.  Here is a picture of that one:


So for her wreath, I kind of meshed both wreaths together, here are the supplies that you’d need if you want to try to make a wreath like this for yourself:

  • 1-16″ Metal Work Wreath with the Chenille Ties already installed
  • 1-14″x 10 yard skein of Cream (or off-white) Burlap Runner 
  • 1-5.5″ x 15′ roll of brown burlap (for a craft bow)
  • 3 Sprigs of brown flowers of your choosing
  • 1 Cream and brown Burlap Sunflower
  • 1 Wooden Cross
  • Hot glue gun, Scissors, Wire Cutters, & Pipe Cleaners

Here is a picture of the finished wreath:

I have created a YouTube tutorial video showing you how I used that brown burlap to make a craft bow, and then I move on into a wreath tutorial.  Here is that link:


Chris will most likely be making me a box so that I can ship this wreath to Donita in the coming days. 🙂  They just don’t make boxes to fit my wreaths…haha…even though this one isn’t as large as some I’ve made, it is still about 24″.

I hope upon hope that Donita loves this wreath, one thing is for sure, I made it with a ton of love in my heart for her!!

Until next time, y’all take good care! ❤

Little & Quick: Valentine’s Day Burlap Wreath

Okay, go ahead, call me anal retentive, you’d be smack dab on the money if you did…lol. 😉  All right, so some of you may have seen my blog post about this my Large Cream and Red Burlap Valentine’s Wreath:


I made that wreath to hang on my front door for February…Here is my YouTube Tutorial if you are at all interested btw….

ANYway, I knew that I’d be changing out my Little Red Wagon decor for Valentine’s Day as well, so I decided that I would make a matching baby wreath to go along with that big one to use as an accent piece in the wagon.  I’ve made a YouTube video tutorial of me making that little wreath as well, I’ll post a link below, but first, here are the supplies that you’d need if you’d like to try one for yourself–it really is very quick and extremely easy, I promise:

  • 1- 12″ Metal Work Wreath
  • White Pipe Cleaners (to add to the work wreath)
  • 1 Roll of 9″ x 10 yards of Off-White Burlap
  • 1- Roll of Red Wired Burlap Ribbon
  • 1 Stem of Red Flowers
  • 1 Cream Burlap Flower
  • 5- Valentine Heart and Berry Picks (I got mine from AC Moore)



Here is the finished wreath:


And here is me holding both wreaths together:


And here is how that little wreath looked when I put it into my little red wagon:

And a picture of the front porch done up for Valentine’s Day.  **BTW**, I’ve made a brand new Home Tour Series  for my YouTube channel–I’ll be writing a separate post and I’ll give you all of those links in there, but, I will stick a link for the one where I show you more of how I decorated the outdoor spaces for Valentine’s Day.


Okie dokie…Now for those links:

Here is the link for this sweet little red and cream burlap wreath:

And here is a link to one of my Home Tour Series videos that show you my other outdoor Valentine’s Day decorations and also tells you about the other outdoor choices that we made when building this home:

Stay tuned for the rest of my Home Tour Series videos as I’ll be writing that little blog soon (you can always find them in my “Country Home Tour Series” playlist on my YouTube channel if you’d like to go and take a peek. 🙂

Until next time, y’all take good care!!

Valentine’s Day Cream Burlap Wreath

I decided on a whim last weekend that I would throw together a quick, but, very large Valentine’s Day wreath for my front door.  I already had most of the supplies that I would need as I utilized some of the left-overs from when I made my cousin Stacey’s Cream on Cream Burlap Wreath.

I created a YouTube tutorial video when I made this wreath and I’ll put a link below, but, first here is a supply list:


  • 1 – 24″ Metal Work Wreath with the chenille ties already attached
  • 1 – 14″ x  10 yard Skein of Cream (or Off-White) Burlap
  • 1 – 5.5 ” x 15′ Roll of Red Burlap
  • Red Silk flowers of your choosing
  • 1 Cream Burlap Flower of your choosing
  • 1 – Happy Valentine’s Day Sign
  • Scissors, Wire Cutters, Pipe Cleaners, & Hot Glue Gun

Here is the finished wreath:


It is quite large, it measures 30″ across…


I am loving this cream burlap you guys and paired with the pop of that red burlap and flowers, I am thrilled with how this turned out. 🙂  I will hang it out on my front door pretty soon so that we can enjoy it from now through February. 🙂

Here is that link to my YouTube Tutorial:
