Burlap Canvas and Wood Wreath with Monogram

Yesterday I shared a Monogrammed Burlap Canvas project
And, well,once I start thinking about a project I just cannot stop myself.
I just fell in love with these small burlap canvases and the laser cut wood doilies...
and I had to make another personalized project.
That is where this wreath came in!
In the past I have made burlap canvas wreaths using old family photos and absolutely love the look, so this is a perfect addition to my home.

  • Ric Rack ($1.99 per package)

  • Use a ruler or L-Square to establish guidelines. I lined the craft ring up so that I would have center lines horizontally and vertically. It helps keep the burlap squares in line.
  • Lay the burlap squares out. Begin with 12 o'clock, 3 o'clock, 6 o'clock, and 9 o'clock - being sure to keep them lined up; Fill in between these spaces with more small canvases.

  • Add 2 additional canvases on top - one on the diagonal near the top left and one on the diagonal near the bottom right. 
  • Now start to  determine what accessories you want to put where, where you want to add color, and how you envision the final project.
  • NOTE: I highly recommend sketching or snapping a quick photo once you get the layout you want.

  • Pick 3 squares and add some paper to them for depth and detail. First cut the paper to an approximate size square and then for interest, tear the edges. Apply decoupage to the back of the paper, and position on the burlap canvases; press down and let dry.

  • Before you begin gluing down the other details or gluing the canvases to the base, ink the edges with the Distress Ink. Just run the ink pad around the edges and especially on the corners.

  • Color/Paint/Ink your wood doilies, birdcage and monogram. Select your desired color and cover completely. Let dry. I used Distress Paint on the L one small doily; Frayed Burlap Distress Ink on one large and 2 small doilies; Black Distress Ink on 1 large and one small doily.

  • Begin glue the canvases to the wood base. Start at the top and work around clockwise, one at a time - this will help you keep the canvases in position. Add the top two canvases. Let dry...but if you are careful you can continue to glue down the details.

  • Let the wreath dry.
  • Add trim like rick rack, bakers twine, buttons, and whatever you love to finish the wreath off.
