This weekend was all about taking it slow. I did not move to fast or do very much but I did get a few easy to do projects completed. One of the easiest things I have done this fall is make a wreath out of an old coffee sack. I have several of these that I got free when we were in Round Top. Long story- but my dumpster diving does pay off.
I am posting twice this evening because I will be out of pocket the next few days.
I totally copied the idea from one of the blogs I follow: Classy Clutter.
I am going to change out the elements of the wreath this fall so what you are going to see is the Plain Jane version.
Untwist a metal hangar like you are roasting marshmallows.
Step two: cut burlap into about two inch strips.
Sting the burlap onto the wire. Keep stinging it on until you can’t put any more on. It took almost the entire coffee sack to get it as full as I wanted.
Form the straight wire into a circle and re-twist the top. I left the hook part of the hanger in place when I straighted the wire. It made a great wreath hanger.
Decorate like you would any wreath. I added a denim ribbon to mine and will be adding fall elements next time I am at Star Hill.
