diy jingle bell burlap wreath

My latest quick, 20 minute Christmas project is this mini jingle bell burlap and rosette wreath...

Here is what I used:

  • burlap feed sack (with green stripe)
  • scissors
  • red material
  • jingle bells
  • bead cord or thread
  • 8-inch foam wreath
  • hot glue gun

Cut the burlap sack down the length in 2-inch wide segments
Wrap the burlap segments around the wreath, overlapping to completely cover the foam wreath
Use hot glue to keep burlap in place
Cut out segments of red material and the green stripe on the burlap sack, then make rosettes
Glue rosettes into place on the wreath
Thread 3 jingle bells together using cord or thread and tie them into place
You're done!

My next project {hopefully} is an advent wreath... I'm so excited to make one for our house!
I'm still debating whether to use wax candles or to buy some nifty battery-operated advent candles... 
Any thoughts?

Right now, I'm working on mailing out our Christmas cards which were just dropped off on our doorstep!!
