Burlap home accents are everywhere this year so I jumped on the bandwagon and made my own Halloween wreath. The great thing about this wreath is that it really becomes a great canvas for any season so you may see it again; whether that be Thanksgiving or even Christmas, the concept makes it very versatile.
Start With Burlap
Stitch It Up
I hand stitched the long sides of the burlap closed around the wreath using a doubled length of thread. At the beginning I sewed closely to the wreath so the end would stay in place but then immediately sewed out to the edges so it could gather. As I sewed, I gathered the burlap by pulling the thread taut. At the end of the length, I tucked the end under and sewed it close.
As I finished a length, I started again with the next one, tucking it under the end of the first. Once you have all the lengths on, arrange the gathered burlap as you like it around the wreath and turn the sewn edge toward the back. It adds a nice cushion and won’t bang on the door when the kids slam it closed.
I hope you enjoy making this craft, and Happy Halloween! You mighty also enjoy this Halloween Paper Wreath.
