Rustic Wreath Tutorial

So I decided to make a cute rustic wreath that we can use year round and between holidays.

wooden wreath
hot glue gun
cardboard letter
permanent marker

First cut about 3 inch strips of burlap. The strips should be about 1 1/2 feet long. Make a knot at the end of the burlap and then start twisting and wrapping in a circle gluing down as you go. (sorry I don't have any pictures of that part.

For the cardboard letter- trace the letter on a piece of burlap (front and back) and cut it out. Hot glue both pieces on to your letter. After your burlap is glued on start to wrap the twine on the outside of the letter gluing as you go. Wa-la!

Glue down the rosettes in a pattern that you love and glue on your letter and you've got yourself an easy rustic wreath!
