I found this burlap wreath tutorial via The Nester.
I started it with some burlap that I had, but I didn't have enough.
So Hubby had to stop and get some when he was out running an errand. Joanne's has multiple burlap colors, so he called me asking which color to get. I just had him get extra, that way if it didn't match I could start over and have enough.
It didn't match so I started over.
I don't know how Jennifer got by with only 5 strips. I used 7 strips (or maybe more, I forget now) that were 4" wide. They were the width of the burlap, which I think was a little more than 36". Maybe if I washed the burlap first, but I've never washed burlap (can you dry it?). It would probably make it not lose all those pokey, needle-y threads (or whatever you would call them) while you're working with it.
I have some burlap left. I think I'll try washing it now.
