easy spring burlap wreath {diy tutorial}

last week when we went to my sisters house for my nieces birthday party we were greeted with this gorgeous wreath. the first thing i said to her was that she had to make me one. since i knew we were heading back to her house the following saturday for my nieces actual birthday we arranged to make it then. my sister found the tutorial via pinterest from top this top that

isn't it purrty? this is my sisters, let's see how we made mine. 

 you are going to need:

- a wire wreath (any size can work, we used a 12") $2.99 
- a roll of 4" burlap, roughly 10 yards $8.99 
- scissors 
- flower bunches $1.99 each (she bought two which was enough for both of ours)
- carrots (pier 1) $4.95 on sale for $4
- moss bunny (pier 1) $2.95 on sale for $2  

tip: use a craft store coupon to get the burlap & wire wreath for less. 

take your wreath and place it on a clean and clutter free work space.

start at the top of burlap and use the hook to secure the burlap.

loop the burlap through the top, middle and bottom opening.

keep looping. it doesn't have to be perfect, you will fluff it at the end.

eat a cupcake while your sisters works away. . .can you tell i am the older sibling? ;)

fluff and even the burlap out.

take your moss bunny and wrap the stick around the wire wreath. fluff the burlap so you don't see the wooden stick. take two sprigs of flowers and insert into the burlap holes.

secure the flowers with the piece of jute that wrapped the roll of burlap.

next, untie the piece of jute that comes on the carrots. tie the jute securely behind the wreath. stick the last two sprigs of flowers behind the carrots.

voila! you now have a pretty spring wreath. since the spring embellishments are just tied on you could easily replace these each season.

another cute use for the pier 1 moss bunny: you could add one of these to a bouquet to bring to easter brunch, or to a loved one or to decorate your table. plus, pier 1 is having 20% off easter and there is a $10 off $50 coupon. 

if you make this i would love to see yours!
