Do you ever get a wild hair?  I mean a really wild hair…where you think about something that you have and you just go grab it and start cutting it into strips and make something out of it?  Of course you do!  Isn’t it fun!?  That is what happened with this burlap coffee bean sack wreath.  I had made the poly mesh kind before….and then it dawned “uponst” me.  I could use the burlap coffee bean sacks that I had…for my fall wreath.

Have you made these before?  They are so easy.  Once you have the wreath form…you just spread the branches out.  I used an old one and took it apart.

Then I cut my coffee bean sack into strips, about the width of poly mesh.

The blue on these sacks is what calls to me.  If you follow me on Instagram (alongthedirtroad) you know that blue is my favorite.  It has been since I was a little child.  It just makes me feel happy.

Little blue stripe…you are so lovely.

After you cut your strips…you just lay them between the two little twiggies and kind of twisty tie them together.  Then you bunch it a little and move to the next two twigs.  I always do the outside row first and then move to the inner circle.  You can make it as full as you want.  I like mine big and fluffy.

Just work with it and tweak it, fluff it and puff it.  Yeah…you get it.

When you are done…hang it on your door.  If it needs a little color…stick a glittery pumpkin from Dollar General in there.  We are talking thrifty here, Dirt Roaders.  I already had all of this stuff.  Now…you might not.  That’s okay.  All of these things aren’t too pricey.  I promise.

I hope that you have a wonderful weekend!  If you have any wreath questions, let me know!
