Burlap Tie Wreath by In Between Laundry

Today is Day 6 of our Halloween Countdown and we have our first guest Blogger for this month of fun! I am so excited! Erin, from In Between Laundry, is sharing a fabulous new Fall/Halloween wreath idea. How cute will our doors be after this tutorial? I am very happy to introduce our first official blogger for Halloween Month.

Blog Meet Erin

Autumn is officially here! Bring on the cooler temps.

My mom and I recently made a fun little trip "into town" and wandered purposefully shopped through the craft store for about an hour.

When do I get to do that?! It was awesome!

Here's what I came up with:

I love, love, love how it turned out!

Want to make your own?

You'll need:
  • a wire wreath form
  • 1-1/3 yards of burlap in various fall colors. (I bought 1/3 yard in 5 colors, but ended up with a lot left over. I recommend doing 1/3 yard in 4 colors.)
  • a wooden letter or word (My mom used a pre-cut WELCOME sign and it looked precious.)
  • scrapbook paper
  • Mod Podge and a paintbrush
  • an exacto knife or scissors

Trace your letter and cut it out. 

Then paint the Mod Podge on your wooden letter and carefully place the paper cut-out on top, lining up the edges.

Apply a thin coat of Mod Podge on top and set aside to dry.

Cut the burlap into strips that are about 2" wide and about 12-15" long. Please don't stress about making these perfect. The messier, the better.

Start tying. Try to tie the left side over the right and the right side over the left to add poof.

Tightly pull the knot and twist the strips into different directions so they look random.

Tie on your adorable little letter.

Leopard print, I love you and I want you in my life more. Like on some shoes.

And there you have it. My door never looked so good. (This is actually my mom's door, but you know what I mean.)

Make this over the weekend. It's quick and fun. You'll be so glad you did.

Don't forget to come back later tonight for our
Feature Friday Roundup party.
Come link up your old and new projects!
