Easy Peasy Lemon Squeezy Craft

Recently I've been in love with the burlap projects plastered all over Pinterest. I especially love the burlap wreaths, but to be quite honest, burlap doesn't love me. I picked up some burlap at the craft store last fall, and while attempting to make a bunting, I started breaking out in hives. Fantastic. So my love for burlap will forever need to be from afar. Enter this easy peasy lemon squeezy craft I came up with! 

I walked in to Michael's Craft Store and saw this beauty hanging in the entryway. 

A puffy burlap wreath already made just for me? Swoon! I threw it in the cart, looked at my mom and said, "This is going to be a dangerous shopping trip. I can feel it already." As I walked through the store with a bazillion projects on my mind I happened upon these beauties:

I'm not sure their purpose exactly, as they were hanging out by the ribbon, but I thought they would be perfect to bling out my wreath. When I saw that they simply had a clip on the back that I could stick right on to the wreath, I was even more excited. Here's what I came up with.

I love it because I can change out the flowers and add other fancies depending on the season or holiday. 

Easy peasy lemon squeezy!

  1. Super cute! I'm in love with burlap, too...and it's been the center of all my latest craft projects. Not easy to work with, but SO SAD to hear about the hives. Boo :(
