burlap wreath

Inspired by Angie and her love for burlap and a few other cute wreaths I have seen on the blogosphere, I decided to make the most of these free weeknights and rainy evenings and get my crafty craft on.

I just love wreaths. They are so cheery and can be used year-round.

Everything was going fine, until I got to these damn flowers.
{can you say damn when being crafty?}
Took a little while, and a few do overs, but I finally got the hang of it. I think these rolled flowers would also look cute attached to a headband or used in gift packaging.

This new wreath is on a coat closet door in our {small} entry way.
It is far from perfect, but I think the loose strings and raw edges gives it some charm.

Perfection is overrated. It looks fantastic!

I love it! Turned out darling!

And yes. Perfectly acceptable to use that word when crafting. :)
