Dollar Store Wreath

So, as you may know, I have been trying to get my front porch spruced up.  I've been wanting to make a wreath of some sort for my front door, which was painted black last week.  I picked up a wreath form at DollarTree and some burlap at Wal-Mart. 

I have seen many, many versions of the burlap wreath and I love them all.  Then last week I saw this adorable rag wreath and I was torn.  So, I decided to combine the two of them.  I cut my burlap into strips and went to work tying them on. 

My dining room table looked like it had snowed from all the fraying burlap fuzz.  Lovely.  Anyway, I tied and I tied and I tied and I tied until I could barely lift my already very sore arms (durn shoulder presses!  UGH!).  Anyway, then I made a few fabric flowers using some of the fabric I bought to make pillows for the front porch. 

I also added my Modge Podge "M" in the middle.  I'm not sure if that part is staying.

I know I need another flower, but I need to add in another fabric - green I think.  Hopefully, I can make a trip to the fabric store soon. 

I'm entering this project at:

  1. Now, that's cute! Personally, I like the big old M in the middle, but I'm pretty much a fan of anything with an initial or monogram...Plus I'm pretty much a mod podge freak too.

    Great job!

  2. I LOVE it, Tanya!!!! Wonder if you could find some paper in a zebra print for the "M"?? Looks great!

  3. This is the first wreath that I've seen that I actually would want in my house. It's not too frilly or leafy or feathery or flowery. I LOVE IT! This one is next on my project list for sure. Oh and I just completed a front porch makeover as well. It's not 100% without a wreath though is it? Check it out:

  4. I love it!! I also love the rag wreath that you linked cute and summery!!! I'll be making one soon.

  5. Love it!! I especially like how you used the white burlap and not the regular brown. Looks great!

  6. I think it turned out wonderful! I'm currently trying to add a monogram M to a wreath I'm making for my dad. How did you get yours to stay in the middle? I'm thinking fishing wire, but not sure! Any tips? :)

  7. Cute wreath! It goes perfectly with your new door color! Thanks so much for stopping by my blog! :)

  8. Isn't that great?!!! Good Job Tanya. Makes me want one.

  9. Thank you for linking to my rag wreath! I love the variation you did - looks totally hip - and the letter sets it over the top. Great job!

    Have a great day,
