DIY FREE wreath

Yes, you sure did read that caption right! We're about to make a free wreath and it looks great! This wreath was made from things I had laying around… you probably do too.

Supply list:
Cardboard box
hot glue
fabric (leftovers)
burlap or more fabric leftovers

Step 1:
Cut cardboard into shape you want for your wreath. I choose rectangle. You will want to cut 2 or three layers.
Step 2:
Glue your layers together. This allows for added stability!

Step 3:
Tear your fabric in 2 inch strips. I used old microfiber sheet that were left over from another project. Once your fabric is in strips glue one end to back of cardboard and start wrapping.

Once you have covered all the cardboard secure with more hot glue.

Step 4:
I added fabric flowers. Tutorial here.
Step 5:
Cut burlap into triangles.

Sew a straight stitch on all sides and create a spot to pull cord, fabric or as I used jute through to hold banner.

Step 6:
Write letters on burlap with a sharpie. Then string letters and secure to wreath with hot glue on the backside.
