I don’t consider myself trendy. I still wear bootcut jeans. I can’t pull off headbands or head pieces. I prefer $4 bottles of wine for Aldi. I don’t own a single piece of white upholstered furniture.
But this wreath may fool you into thinking I’m pretty hip and cool. Because I ended up combining three of the most trendy materials into this wreath without even realizing it. Heck. Maybe they aren’t even trendy anymore … it’s sort of like me wearing Uggs ten years after they were actually popular.
Then, I rediscovered a metal wreath form that was just larger than the tree slice. I remembered all the amazing burlap wreaths that I’ve seen around the blogosphere. You can find great instructions at Top This Top That. Since I already had the the burlap, the twill tape and the form, this was an inexpensive project.
And, then I remembered I had leftover chalkboard paint.
I just couldn’t help myself. In the span of 20 minutes, I had a fun and trendy wreath for my front door that is perfect for fall. And I used things I had in the house.
