Knock, Knock. Who's There? Burlap Wreath!

I was standing in my studio yesterday
staring at my bin of burlap.
I'm not sure how long I stood there
staring but an inspiration struck me and


this is what transpired...


I made the roses out of strips of burlap and kept
them kinda messy and stringy. I thought
it added to the shabby look.


The whole project took about 3 hours of
hard labor (hee,hee) and by the time I
finished my hands were a little
raw and dried out, gotta love that burlap!

But it was worth it.
Now, since I don't need
another wreath here in this tiny house,
I have it for sale in my textile shop

So if you're too lazy to make your own :)
you can purchase mine!
