Easy DIY Burlap & Starfish Wreath


Supplies:
1 – 8 inch straw wreath (plastic wrap intact)
Approx. 1/2 yard of burlap
1 Starfish
1 Piece of Ribbon (approx. 36″)
Gorilla Glue
Gorilla Super Glue
Scissors
Phillips Head Screwdriver

Step 1:  Cut burlap into 4″ squares.  Perfection not required!

Step 2:  Using the screwdriver, make a pilot hole into the plastic-wrap covered straw wreath.

Step 3:  Add a dab of Gorilla Glue into the hole.  This will expand and keep the burlap in place.

Step 4:  Fold a burlap square into 4s (in half and in half again)

Step 5:  Place burlap corner (without an open end) on top of the pilot hole and using the screwdriver, push into the hole and twist. Repeat until the wreath is covered on the front and outer edge, leaving an open area for ribbon/to hang the wreath.

Step 6:  Determine where starfish will go and apply Gorilla Super Glue to the backside of the starfish that will touch the wreath.  Apply pressure and hold for a minute until secure.

Step 7:  Tie the ribbon around the non-burlap part of the wreath.

Step 8:   All done!  Fluff.  Tie into a bow and hang.  You now have a fab wreath – sure to impress your houseguests!

Other Options:  Personalize a wreath for any occasion the same technique with different fabrics and embellishments.
