Simple Red Burlap Bubble Christmas Wreath

I just love that simple and natural look of burlap wreaths, and I saw some on Easy that have tight, packed bubbles instead of full swooping loops.   I knew a tight, red burlap wreath would look perfect for Christmas on our stone fireplace.  So I studied up on several tutorials, and gave it a try.  Here is what I came up with:

This took a little longer then the other wreaths that I have made, but so far it is my favorite one.  I used a styrofoam wreath for the base and about 2 yards of red burlap that I cut into 5"x5" squares.  In order to make it look nice a full I really packed the burlap bubbles onto the wreath.  I wanted to keep it simple so I added just a white burlap bow.

Here are a couple of the tutorials that I used to learn how to make this style of wreath:

It really was not hard at all to make, it just took patience to cut the squares of burlap.  And then each square of burlap had to be folded into burlap and pinned in place.
