Burlap Rose Wreath in 3, I mean, 30 minutes or less

Because I'm such a good friend and because my front door is a bit bare, I'm taking part in the Welcoming Wreath party hosted by Gwen over at The Bold Abode!

So, here's my tutorial for making a wreath in 30 minutes or less!

Step 1) have grape vine wreath, old burlap coffee sack, hot glue gun, scissors and other various accoutrements already on hand.  Okay, the whole deal make take a little longer if you don't already have these goodies.  You are NOT required to factor your trip to the crafty store into your time, especially if you're lugging children.

Step 2) cut said burlap into approximately 2 inch wide strips.  How long?  How about 1 coffee sack width down and back.  Each strip will make one 'rose'.

Step 3) roll until the center of the 'rose' is formed, then continue to roll and add a twist every couple of  inches.

(sorry, I stink at self-portraits)

Step 4) glue to aforementioned grape vine wreath.  Repeat.

Step 5) decide that wreath looks like a FALL wreath, not a SUMMER wreath and add green fabric scraps and even some faux greenery.

Setp 6) hang and admire handiwork!

Okay, this seriously did take me all of 3 minutes.  I realize that Martha probably wouldn't approve and normally I'm not much of a grapevine-wreath-with-burlap-roses or faux greenery of any kind, kind of girl, but I have to admit, I really like it!

So, hurry up and make a wreath so you can link to the party too!  Or, if nothing else, go HERE and check out all the other link ups to find some inspiration!!
