Easy Fall Burlap and Flower Wreath

Yes, I have yet another burlap project for you all. I am  happy to report that I am finally out of my stash of burlap that I bought from Mindy Mae's Market. I have made 2 wreaths, a memo board and my mother in law made cones for wedding flowers for her nephew's wedding (the same one that I made the paper flowers and banner for).

Today's project is a simple fall wreath made with a FloraCraft wreath form, burlap, and fall colored fake flowers.

First I wrapped the burlap around the wreath form.

 Then I removed the flowers from the stems and began to hot glue them to the burlap.
 I used a low temperature glue gun. I am forever traumatized by getting burned by a glue gun set on high.

 My little helper was again very pleased with this project.

Burlap Message Board

I can't believe I finally finished this project. I think I started working on this in April but it just didn't turn out the way that I wanted. I could not figure out how to secure the back properly. I used my glue gun but it didn't stick. Last week I had a total revelation and I just wanted to face palm myself because it was so simple.Staple it!

 I started off with some Burlap and Upholstery Tacks that I got from Mindy Mae's Market earlier this year or maybe last year. I decided that a Bulletin Board would be a good use of the supplies. I bought a STYROFOAM Brand Foam  1" x 12" x 18" Sheet  and went to work.
The burlap was a bit sheer so I decided to recycle an old tan tank top.
I even went out and bought a new purple stapler for the occasion.

I measured the board and figured out on the shorter side to space

My lovely assistant seemed very pleased with the board. Of course she claimed it for her own.

Thanks for stopping by!
