Burlap And Blooms Simply Created Kit

With so many kits available, it’s super-easy to create DIY home décor projects in a matter of minutes! The Burlap and Blooms Simply Created Wreath Kit is one of those great kits, but why limit yourself to just making a wreath? This kit is also great for decorating photo frames, decking out a basket, making a banner, or even creating a fun spring-inspired piece to use in the center of your table . . . or to put on your mantle.

For this project I began by cutting some branches. This time of year is perfect here in northern Utah because the branches are bare with the tips just starting to bud! My initial idea was to spray paint the branches white, but after contemplating for a bit, I couldn't bring myself to cover up their gorgeous natural color. I opted instead to leave them as is! I added some of the flowers from the Burlap and Blooms kit to the branches using my handy dandy glue gun. Then I upcycled a soup can by painting it white, stuck a Tea Lace Paper Doily on it to give it a softer look, and wrapped some burlap (included with the kit) and Very Vanilla Seam Binding dyed with Calypso Coral ink around the can. So super-quick and easy!

Have you made any fun, alternate projects using the Burlap and Blooms Simply Created Wreath Kit?
