Look, I did it! I made my first burlap wreath!!


I am not a crafty person. Not at all. I am good for maybe a once a year craft project and that is it. So when I got an Etsy gift certificate from my sweet friend Christine for a monogrammed wood letter company, I thought…hmmmm…ok I can do this. I think I could actually make something!  I have wanted to make a burlap wreath for our new house since we moved in six months ago! We have a farmhouse theme and I thought this would be perfect for the front door. So I ordered a big monogrammed letter for the wreath and I also ordered two small L’s for my daughters rooms! Yes, I was feeling confident! lol

I went to Michael’s Craft store, received some great help from a store clerk and left with
my supplies. I then took to youtube for a burlap wreath tutorial and I was ready to go! I craft letterspainted my wood letters, burlapped my wreath and by golly, I was pretty surprised with the results. I even liked how the girls door craft turned out too!

Ok, so I may not be winning the Martha Stewart crafter of the year award (if there was one), but I think it turned out pretty darn good! I kept walking around the house saying to my husband…I don’t even know who I am right now! haha

I may even try something else crafty! Any suggestions????
