"Wreath" or wreathout BURLAP ?

I have been waiting to make this craft for myself for quite a few weeks now, but with Mia having been under the weather and cranky this project went on the back burner. She's now back on schedule. So, I cranked this one out as fast as I could. I LOVE LOVE LOVE burlap ! You can do anything with it. I've got about five more projects that I'm working on with burlap that I'll post later.  A blog that I follow inspired this craft, she's an amazing crafter with simple and thrifty tutorials. My kinda gal. Well hope you like it, enjoy!

Thinking about painting the front door black or deep chocolate/mocha brown, any thoughts? Please leave a comment!!!
