It’s not too early to start on the Halloween Decorations is it? I sure hope not because we are getting into the spirit here in our house already! I have had this idea in my head about doing a burlap wreath for Halloween for weeks and I just could not wait to do it. My original idea had some purple and green in it too but I could not find burlap in those colors so my daughter and I had to do it with just the black and orange but truth be told I just LOVE how it turned out pretty yet creepy at the same time!
I will be honest on this one and let you all know that I did have to help my daughter quite a bit on this project. We used a rotary cutter because I thought it would be easier to measure and cut the burlap, but my daughter never did push down hard enough to actually cut the burlap so I had to go back and do all the cutting. But she did have fun trying so she practiced quite a bit.
She also needed help with the tying of the knots. It was great practice for her but once the wreath started to get fuller she had a harder time with it so I had to finish it up. So my daughter did not totally make this Halloween wreath herself, but we did have fun working on it together. And she got a LOT of practice tying knots which she really needed so it was a learning project too!
