The Never Ending Red Burlap!

So, I am still trying to use up the bolt of red burlap that I got this summer for $2.00.And decided to put a twist on all those Christmas hanger ball wreaths that we did.




 I laid out about 8 feet of burlap and cut four, six-inch strips.






 Then, using an untwisted hanger as a “needle” threaded the strips back and forth.



 Twisted off the hanger to make a wreath shape and added layers of ribbon and a L.O.V.E sign that I Martha glittered!



 I still have enough burlap to make oh… a few hundred more!




F.Y.I... If for some reason your daughter happens to “accidently” drop her itouch in the sink, while brushing her teeth, listing to I Gotta a Feeling.  Then proceeds to earn herself an Oscar over her reaction.


Dry off the phone, turn it off, and drop it into a bag of dry rice. This will pull the moisture out and, if you are lucky, will restore life to ‘I Gotta to a Feeling’.


 Never use a hairdryer, as this will only push the water deeper into your device.

  2. Great tip about the itouch {or any of those devices}! I think everyone's first thought would be to dry it as quickly as possible, so the hair dryer is the first thought.

    Love this wreath, Kate! I don't even decorate for Valentine's Day {I used to for the kids when they were little}, but I'd put this up in a minute! Seems like you are getting your monies worth and more from that burlap.

  4. this is so cute, and since you have so much left over, go ahead and make one for me. I'll send you my address. :) This is seriously adorable. I've seen similar ones in the regular beige burlap, but the red is really pretty!

    Sorry I am so late. As it ended up, we did have a (6 hour) stint in the ER with my son. Praise God, all is ok. But, I am late in getting around to everyone this week. My apologies.
