Burlap Wreath Project

Every year the women in my family and a few close friends get together for a Christmas cookie exchange and craft day. This year’s craft was a burlap wreath. First, we watched the video below and then all sat down to make our own. I provided the wire wreath form, burlap and fabric in red and green, as well as plastic berries and small craft birds. No two wreaths were the same, and everyone had a good time and took home a nice decoration.
