To me, it seems like over the last year or so, burlap has suddenly started to really become fairly popular. My personal take on burlap is that you really love it or you really don't care for it. Personally, I'm definitely on the really love it end. Wanna get me a present? Get me some burlap. It's like Austin Powers saying "Get in my belly!" but, I'm saying "Get in my hands!"
Anyway, when I recently ran into Michael's to pick up a picture frame, I came across this roll of burlap. It's very affordable, especially with one of their Sunday newspaper coupons. Right next to the burlap was a brown, wood wreath, perfectly placed in the store, to make me feel like I have to take them both home with me. Take them home with me is exactly what I did and then they had to sit for a few days while I finished some other projects I had going. See, I have this thing where I don't want to start another project until the last one is finished. I think I'm afraid of my home becoming a house full of un-finished projects.
I've seen burlap wreaths on Pinterest but, I truly didn't copy anyone's idea for this one. Not sure if that's a good thing or not because there are some awesome ideas out there. During the night, I woke up to pee and thought about my wreath for just a second. The idea of using my husbands staple gun to attatch the burlap came to mind. I mentally jotted the idea down and then asked to borrow his staple gun the next day. The staple gun worked amazing! This craft was so, so, so, super fast with the staple gun. Of course, I love using a glue gun but, I think the staple gun was definitely the right tool for this job.
To make one of these wreaths, all you need is a roll of burlap, wood wreath shape and a staple gun.
Note: A regular stapler won't work for this. You need the power behind a staple gun....just had to mention it before anyone tries with a regular old stapler.
Staple. It's that easy.
