Burlap Flag Wreath!

 Burlap Flag Wreath!
Do you like this Burlap wreath or the Mesh fabric wreath better???
 Let's start with a wreath base.
A burlap wreath is good for any season or holiday and can be changed out regularly!
You might remember seeing this "Everything is Awesome" wreath??

This burlap was sent to me from BurlapFabric.com
They have everything you can think of with Burlap!
Ribbon, table cloths, table runners, bags, buntings, seasonal, boxes,
lace, curtains, pillows, flowers and more!
I just got a big roll of burlap fabric...a 40" by 5 yard roll of it!
Look here, it's on clearance for less than $7!
 You'll need:
wreath form
burlap
pipe cleaners or wire
hot glue/gun

  I used this used/reused wreath form.
 I cut strips of burlap...about 8 to 10 inches wide.
 Gather up one side of it and set it on the wreath form...
 While holding it gathered, wrap a pipe cleaner around it and twist it tight.
 Now fold the burlap back over the top of the pipe cleaner...
 Gather again and twist it off with a pipe cleaner.
 Then repeat all around the wreath.
The loops are so full and big, that the pipe cleaners don't even show!
 After filling the entire wreath (sorry, no picture)
I decided a bow would be nice.
So I folded some burlap and hot glued it together.
 And then hot glued it right onto the bottom...covering a pipe cleaner.
Now for the flag.
I had this old and tattered edged flag...it was on a stick.
I found a piece of thin press board that I cut down to the right size.
(you could use firm cardboard)
 I ironed the flag.
 Used some spray adhesive and sprayed the board
 Pressed the flag on it...
Then ran some hot glue along the backside of the flag...
 And folded the edges up on the board to prevent fraying
and it gives it a finished edge look!
 So the back doesn't look that great...but whatever.
The top looks fabulous!
 I just added a loop of twill tape on the back and hooked it to the
wreath hanger and arranging it on the burlap wreath.
 But I tried it on this bowtie wreath I made here...
what do you think?
Which do you like better???
