Burlap Wreath

A friend of mine, and her fiancĂ© just finished building a new house and I made this wreath for her as a little house warming present.  I have made this style of wreath before and love it because it's super easy and always turns out great. You can see how to make this wreath in my tutorial. Here are some pictures I took of the wreath at my house before I gave it to her.

Bridal Shower Decorations

On Sunday, I hosted my sister's bridal shower.  I had a lot of fun setting it all up and everything went really well. Here are a few pictures of what my house looked liked decorated for the shower. I made two banners that both said "bride to be". One was made out of mason jar lids painted with chalk board paint. The other banner was made out of burlap.
