celebrate america burlap wreath

This adorable burlap wreath gives your guests a warm American welcome.
Step 1
Quantities Needed for this Project:
3 - Ashland™ Burlap Garlands, 5"
2 - Creatology™ Chenille Stems, 6 mm – Beige
 
Use a foam brush to paint one side of the wood plaque with the chalkboard paint. Set aside to dry. 
Step 2
Cut 14, 2' long pieces of burlap. 
Step 3
This wreath is made with multiple burlap bows. To make a bow, lay a 2' piece of burlap flat and fold in each end so the ends overlap in the middle about 2". 
Step 4
Pinch the overlapping middle together and twist a chenille stem around it, making a bow. Repeat with the remaining 13 pieces of burlap. 
Step 5
To attach the bows to the wire wreath frame, twist the chenille stem tails around the outer wire wreath frame and the next one to the inner wire wreath frame. Continue until the wreath is filled and evenly spaced. 
Step 6
Unroll the spool of decorative ribbon and tie one end to the back part of the wire wreath. 
Step 7
Begin to weave the ribbon over and through the burlap bows, keeping the spacing uniform. When you reach the end, simply tie it to the back of the wreath frame. 
Step 8
When the chalkboard paint has dried, rub the side of the chalk onto the painted surface to prime the chalkboard and create a natural chalky look. 
Step 9
Next, use a chalk marker and write “Made in the USA” on the wood piece. 
Step 10
Position a U.S. flag into the wreath and hot glue the stick to the burlap to keep it in place. 
Step 11
To complete the wreath, hot glue the chalked sign to the bottom center of the wreath. You will hot glue the plaque directly to the burlap.
 
TIP: If desired, trim the chenille stems on the back of the wreath with wire cutters or scissors. This simply creates a cleaner look.
