I just loved how these wreaths look. I was originally going to add a bow but really liked the simplicity of this loos without out one. Very country but very pretty. And not to girly per my sister’s request. Next I will be working on decorating some vases with more burlap ribbon and twine. All of the decorations for the shower are really coming together. I can’t wait. Have you ever made a burlap wreath? How did it turn out? What did you use to accent it?
