Home Improvement Week 4: Burlap Wreath [part 2]

Oh lord- time to hunker down today! We had some major snow hit us over the past 12 hours! As in, 10 inches a lot of snow.  We have been outplaying all morning with Stryker and shoveling the snow out of the driveway. So guess what that means?! I actually had time to finish the wreath! If you are trying to make one of these, I would recommend buying extra burlap.  You can always use it someplace else around your house if you have leftovers.  Last week I bought all the supplies, but I ran out of burlap so here is the finished product.

The coloring in the picture is a little off...the B is red and navy!

Since I got the hang of weaving the burlap in and out of the green loops, I redid the whole thing.  I ended up using 6 rolls of burlap total. I finished it off by hot gluing the last piece to the beginning knot I tied. Here is a look at what the wreath looked like before I added the B to it.  I love the way it looks plain too.

I was not 100% sure how to attach the "B" to the wreath and considered not even putting it on.  I ended up just hot gluing a string to the back of the B and tied ti around the burlap. This way, we can change it out as new seasons come. Painting the B Cleveland Indians colors was the extra added touch that makes the wreath perfect! 

If you have any questions or need more details, leave me a comment!


  1. SUPER CUTE! I love how easy this was. And a good project for so much snow! We got about 7-8 inches here and we're still pretty iced in!

    1. Thanks Sarah! Yea, we are off again tomorrow. The past 2 weeks have been crazy with snow days! I am starting to get a little cabin fever! Hope you all are staying warm!
