EASY Burlap Wreath

This wreath is a perfect summer wreath for your front door, or anywhere. It is super simple and fun to make. The items you will need for this project are listed below.
1- Some kind of wreath form. I just bought a wreath from the dollar store.
2- Burlap. Any color, you will need less than a yard.
3- Scissors and hot glue
4-something fun to put on I cut a letter "B" out of a sheet of moss. You could use anything like a small birds nest, flowers, whatever you want.
First I just cut long strips out of burlap. you will need 2 long strips. One strip wider than the other. (about double the width.) Then I just started to glue it on the wreath. I just put the hot glue on the wreath and layed the burlap on top and pinched it about every 1/2 inch. This makes it look cute and ruffled.

Ruffle it all the way around. Then do the same with the thinner strip right on top of the piece already glued on the wreath.

Then I just added the "B" I cut out of a sheet of moss that I found at the dollar store and tied it on with ribbon.

Book Page Accent Ball

There are a lot of fun accent balls out there. They are used to decorate anything and everything! Put them in a bowl, on a candlestick, or book shelf. Make a topiary, or just stick it in a pot. The possibilities are endless! I have loved the project I have done thus far with book pages, so I thought why not try a ball? It turned out awesome! I adore this!
First I just got a little ball from the dollar store. Then I Mod Podged the book pages right onto the ball. It doesn't have to look pretty, you wont see this part very much.

Then I cut a bunch of pages into large circles, and then I cut the circle into a spiral.

Next, just start from the outside and start to roll inward.

Look how cute! It turns into a darling rosette!

All you need to do now is hot glue those rosettes onto the ball. Easy huh?

Look how great it turned out!! I think this would look awesome displayed anyway you could think of. I am thinking way ahead here, but I think some of these little guys might end up on my Christmas tree this year!

Stenciled Burlap Pillows

I'm sure you all know that Burlap is a HUGE new trend right now. I did the spring pennant banner a few posts ago. This is the same idea, but on a pillow. I love these! They are cheap, easy, and you can personalize it however you want! Whats not to love right?

Supplies needed: acrylic paint, a stencil brush, stencil, burlap, and pillow insert or stuffing.

I cut my stencils out with my cricut. I think I mentioned on a previous post that I found really great stencils at Hobby Lobby. You could even draw an awesome design on a piece of card stock and cut it out with an X-acto knife if you want to get crazy and creative!

I did a "B" for our last name. It would also work for a first name to throw on a bed or something:)

After you have gathered the few supplies needed, cut 2 pieces of burlap the size you want your pillow. Now you can either sew the 3 sides together, or you can stencil on one side, and then sew. It works either way. If you decide to sew first, make sure you put something inside the pillow to before you stencil so that it doesn't bleed through. Easy easy! I think it would be fun to do a crown or a chandelier stencil for a little girls room. I love that you can do what ever color and design you want....customize for your space.

It was my daughters B-day, so I did a cupcake one! She loved it!
