Burlap Rosette Wreath (Hobby Lobby knockoff)

 
Hello bloggin' friends!  While shopping at Hobby Lobby this weekend; I ran across the most beautiful rosette burlap wreath.  I  thought to myself -- this would be perfect hanging on the sweetheart table for the wedding!  Then I saw the price --  $49.00.  Too steep for me.  (Especially since it was only about 10 inches tall.)  So -- I set out to make my own. I already had tons of burlap and a styrofoam wreath from a left over project.  I gathered my Styrofoam wreath, hot glue gun, scissors, and began cutting strips of burlap 2 inches by 24 inches long.  I wrapped the wreath in burlap to cover the white part.  Next, I watched lots of youtube videos on how to make burlap rosettes.  None of them seemed to turn out right for me.  I just kept playing with my burlap until I got my roses  to look the way I wanted them.  Last, I attached them to the wreath form with pearl tipped floral pins.  I was really happy with the way it turned out!  It's bigger than the Hobby Lobby one -- and ALOT cheaper!
