Another Wreath

its the weekend and i celebrated early by making this wreath!! i found a similar one online but now i can't find it or i would give credit to the original poster even thought mine is not quite the same...the one i saw was made with the straw wreaths that have the plastic around them...instead of gluing the burlap, you poke a hole and stick it in...might have been easier to do that...this got a little messy with all the glue i used...see below:

i started out with a wreath from the dollar tree...$1.00!! i cut some burlap into small squares...it was leftover from another project that i did...my trusty glue gun and lots of glue sticks....i scrunched them up in the middle and randomly glued them on the wreath...thats it...simple and easy

here it is finished...i added the starfish to go with my coastal decor...i already had it too...saving it just for this project...this wreath is small...only about 9 inches across...



Peace, Love, & Joy

Hey Ashley,
I love your burlap wreath! Especially the finishing touch of the starfish. Someday I'd love to live at the beach. A bunch of people in my family will have to die and leave me all their money for that to happen ... and maybe I'm not ready for that yet!
I wanted to make sure that I answered your question regarding the DIY Laundry Soap. I used to make liquid soaps and sugar scrubs for a side biz, and I always used 1 tsp for every 8 ounces for a strong scent. I figured that 2 tsp would add a nice scent and hopefully not stain our clothes! I knew I could always add more, but I really didn't need to. You should post your recipe, I'd love to see how you make it! Thanks for the visit and the comment. I've clicked to follow you! Jules
