Spring'tacular Craft Link Party Parade!

I am so excited to be hosting this part of the Great Spring'tacular Link Party Parade!  I can't believe the day is finally here....today is my Craft Party!  It is an honor to have you join me!


I have made so many different crafts over the past few weeks, I had a hard time picking which one I wanted to share with you today.

I decided on an Easter wreath I made.


First, I gathered a few supplies...like a wire wreath & burlap.


I cut the burlap into strips, about 1 inch by 8 inches long.  No, the strips don't need to be perfect.  Take each strip and tie them on the wreath form.


Keep tying strips onto the wreath.  It'll start looking this this:


You want it to look nice & full when it's done, so you can really tie as many strips as you can fit.  I would say I used a good yard & half of burlap.  


I kind of liked the wreath in this plain form, but because this is a Spring/Easter party, adding a little of the season was the way to go.   I bought a square pail from Michaels & filled it with some Spring blooms.  I then tied the whole thing to the wreath with yellow gingham ribbon.


There she is....my Burlap Rag Easter Wreath!


Cute, huh? 

Oh yeah, it would be rude of me if I don't warn you.  This is a messy project.  The burlap fibers make quite a mess.  Nothing that a vacuum or a good sweeping can't cure, but I thought I should let you know beforehand. 

Now I am ready to get this party started!

***Please link up your Spring/Easter craft projects.
***Please be sure to add my link to your post so that others can party with us.

I so look forward to seeing what you've created and I really appreciate your joining me today for my very first party! 

Let's go!

Oh my goodness Gina...I love it. It's soooo cute, and it looks very easy to make. Thanks for the inspiration.

I have been working on a project that has been consuming me and a lot of my time... I didn't even realize your Spring'tacular had already started :-( It just snuck up on me. I wanted to participate but didn't plan this out very well. Oh well, at least I can run over and see what others are sharing.

Much love,
♥Ana

Jann Olson said...

Hi Gina, love the wreath! The Easter embellishments are very cute. I know what you mean about messy. I made a garland with burlap tied on jute for my bedroom at Christmas. Burlap was everywhere. Like you said, cleaned up easy. I loved it so much that I have left it draped on my red cabinet. Burlap is so universal don't you agree? Thanks for the fun party. I am now following you.
Hugs,
Jann

Do you mind if I copy-cat you? Your wreath is fabulous, even if it's a bit messy to make. It's the best I've seen this season, too. Thanks for hosting this party. I can't wait to see everyone else's projects.

That is so cute, Gina! I love how fluffy it is, & the little tin container in the center is so adorable. I'm so glad you are keeping this party open for awhile, because I'm still working on my project. So many parties, so little time!
