Rustic Burlap Rosette Wreath Tutorial

Sometimes I feel overwhelmed.
Overcome with thankfulness.
And so incredibly grateful.

I have the privilege of teaching what I love.  
My life has lead me in different directions and taken many twists and turns but I have to say that I am pretty happy just where I am at.  How often do we get to say that?! 

Today is our last Pinspired Project class.  You can read more about the class here.  And if you are local you can check out all of the courses that I teach here.  Registration for spring classes begins next week.

Just a few weeks ago we created our very own Rustic Burlap Rosette Wreath inspired by this pin.
I think that this was my favorite project from the entire class.  It is such a classic wreath that can be used almost any time of year.

 There was no tutorial attached to this pin so I have created one for you!  Here’s what you need to make your own rustic wreath:

1 grape vine wreath {this one is from Michaels for $4.99}
4-6 strips of burlap 1″ by 24″+ {the longer the strip of fabric, the bigger the flower}
4-6 strips of linen 1″ by 24″+
Jute twine
Buttons
Ribbon
Pearl beads
Hot glue gun and lots of glue sticks

 Start to create burlap and linen flowers.  Tie one end of the strip of fabric into a knot.

Slowly twist and wrap the strip around the knot, using the hot glue to glue it into place as you go.  Continue in this fashion until the entire strip of fabric is used, twisting, wrapping and gluing around and around.  Tuck the end of the strip under the flower and glue in place.

Repeat the process until you have at least 6 or 7 flowers.

Its a good idea to make more flowers than you are going to need.  This way you can really play with the flower placement until it looks right to you.

  Embellish the flowers with buttons, ribbon and pearls.

Finally, use the hot glue to glue the flowers onto the wreath.

I also wrapped jute, burlap and ribbon around the wreath for more depth and texture.  Don’t forget to use a piece of jute to create a loop to hang your wreath from.

The finished project turned out fabulous…
