A Country Valentine Burlap Wreath









Stephanie over at The Enchanting Rose 
and 
Mary over at Visits with Mary,

made a Valentine Wreath, theirs were so pretty that
 it got me to wanting to make one also.  I had bought this roll
of burlap back before Christmas. Didn't know what I was 
going to do with it, I just loved and wanted it.


 
I wasn't sure what I was going to do with
it but I love rustic, as well as frilly things. What other
than use it for a Valentine Wreath!

I took a clothes hanger and my sweet hubby cut the 
top off it and I bent it into what looked somewhat
like a heart to start off with. I did have to tweak it a bit more.





 I then took a needle and some craft thread folded the burlap and gathered it around the edges.


I ran the hanger through the gathered burlap and did use a little hot glue in places to keep it where I wanted it. I bent the wire together at the top. I then found some red ribbon in my sewing box, and glued it around the edges of the burlap. I put the key that I received
from my friend at Christmas at the top and tied a ribbon above it.
My daughter stopped in for a visit and she made a couple of suggestions. Between the both of us this is how it came out.


Now it's been a few years since I have done this type of thing. 
Years ago I did do craft shows and sold my items, 
but since I have arthritis, my fingers don't like me doing this
anymore. 

These are the items I used.

Coat hanger
burlap roll
red ribbon
hot glue gun and glue sticks
Metal Key
Needle and Craft Thread


After ALL that hard work it's time for tea!



 Have you tried the Little Debbie, Red Velvet Valentine Cake?
They're good!




Have a Blessed Day!

  1. I've looked at the burlap at Michael's Sylvia without knowing what I could possible use it for. Your rustic looking heart is pretty and adding the gifted key is a nice touch.
    I purchased the chocolate hearts that Little Debbie has - they're good too!

  14. Hello, This is such a good idea! I may just try one of these! It was nice to have your Hubby's help! I have been making some little pillow hearts and stuffing them, but I love the burlap also.
