Spring Burlap Wreath

I have wanted to make a wreath like this ever since I saw one like it on Tatertots and Jello.  Jen's blog is fabulous!  You have to check it out (if you haven't already!).  She is very talented and has soooo many fun crafts and tutorials!

I tweaked my wreath a little, but I pretty much did the same thing she did.  I used coordinating fabric, Burlap, and for the centers I used buttons and sticky back pearls.  I used one of those $.50 cent wreaths I got from Salvation Army (yay!), fabric and burlap I already had, buttons and pearls that I already had.  So this wreath cost me about $1 to make.  I LOVE that price;) It just gives me a warm, fuzzy feeling....

Here is my take of the Spring Burlap Wreath:
This probably took me about 1 hour to make.  I cut all the circles at once, folding the fabric over several times, so I could cut out about 4 at once.
Please excuse my ugly walls.  I soooo need to paint them and I am planning on it this summer!  
I absolutely Luuuurve this fabric!  I have had it for a while but just never used it until now. 

Hopefully now that ALL of my SPRING decorations are out, the weather will actually be warm enough to wear a short sleeved t-shirt!  I can tell it's coming....
Have a great week;)
