Burlap Sping Wreath With Fabric Flowers...

In order to try and brighten up the outside of our house I decided to make a Spring wreath. I had learned how to make fabric flowers from Jill over at http://barnesfamilylove.blogspot.com/ So I thought I would give them a try. Luckily I already had all these supplies in my craft drawers so I was ready to go. Here are some of the supplies needed Burlap, floral wreath and glue gun. I cut some strips of Burlap and started to wrap them around the wreath and hot gluing as I went. I love how Burlap unravels so you get all the strings that hang off. It just adds to the charm.
This is what it looks like when you are done wrapping
Next I cut some long strips so I could start making my flowers
Start by tying a not at one end. This will be the center of your flower.
Next you want to star twisting the fabric or burlap and then start slowly wrapping it around your knot.
Put small dots of hot glue as your are twisting.
Keep twisting around the knot forming a rose or flower shape
You can make it as small or as large as you want. When you are done with one color you can twist the fabric to the back of the flower and hot glue it to the back.
Next you can use any type of fabric you have. Start by cutting a small cut at the top of the fabric and tear off a long strip.
Start by gluing it on the back of your flower and begin twisting it around the outside of your center.
You can repeat this process as many times as you want or just do one color. It's up to you!
Next I just started gluing the flowers on my wreath.
Here it is
