Burlap Bubble Wreath

Burlap Bubble Wreath
Who'd a Thunk it came from Junk? . . .


 
 Did you see how I made my own wreath form
using an old steering wheel cover, stuffing paper and tape?
No? Click HERE to see how. 
Sa-weet upcycle idea, huh? 

Cut 4" squares from burlap.
Bring the corners together, staple and glue onto wreath.
 
 If adding embellishment, I suggest leaving about a 2"
wire flower stem; This big and beautiful seed pod mum 
came from JoAnn's Fabric and Craft store - it's a bit heavy - 
make a hole with scissor point, add hot glue, insert the stem.
Stand back and admire your handy work :)

  15. I'll have to say that was the most creative use of a steering wheel cover I've ever seen! Your wreath is beautiful. I have a similar white burlap wreath that I just haven't decided how to adorn again.

    1. Your welcome! I think some folks skip the stapling part, but it helps to keep from burning your fingers with hot glue. Glad you stopped by to comment. Have a great weekend!

  18. That's adorable, JoAnn! And whoever would have thought it began life as a steering wheel? And now you make your own seed pod flower to add without buying one too! Thanks for sharing in Pinned it, Made it Monday!

    Blessings,

  20. JoAnn,
    What a nifty way to make a wreath, never would have thought to use a steering wheel! Your wreath turned out BEAUTIFUL! I love how you did the burlap squares, sounds easy enough. I might have to try your version out since I've been wanting to make a burlap wreath for sometime now.
