University of South Carolina Burlap Wreath

Months ago {like nine} my best friend Kristen asked for a University of South Carolina burlap wreath and I put it off like the plague because the last wreath I was interested in doing was a Gamecock one. But Kristen is one of my best friends and what kind of friend would I be if I didn’t make her one?

Since I  hosted her bridal shower back in June, I thought the wreath would be a perfect gift plus it gave me a deadline to get it done by. I do have to say that this was the hardest wreath to buy supplies for. My Clemson brain just wouldn’t wrap around the USC colors I needed to order {which was part of the reason it took me so long to get it done}.

Even though I had a hard time making this wreath, I really loved the way it turned out. No, garnet and black aren’t my favorite colors but it’s definitely not an ugly wreath {not to toot my own horn or anything}. The most important part? Kristen loved it!

Since her shower, I’ve actually made a second University of South Carolina burlap wreath {what was I thinking???} for my cousin Justin and his wife Ali and it may or may not have made it in their wedding photos :) Oh, the things we do for friends and family!

  • you are so crafty! wreaths arent my thing but this is super cute.

  • I am so impressed – are you going to do a tutorial?!! I love how you filled in the center of the wreath too! This is so great!

    • Thanks, doll! I’ve thought about doing a tutorial but I think a video would be easier but I can’t decide! Maybe one day I’ll have time to film one!

  • My bare front door is desperate for a wreath

    • Girl, I don’t even have one on my door. I had every intentions of making a summer wreath but never got around to it.

  • Love that wreath!! You’re so talented! I bought supplies to make one last year and was too intimidated to ever start, ha!

    • Thank you! You should definitely try it! I promise, it’s not as intimidating as it looks :) I definitely had some flops in the beginning but slowly, I’m getting better!

  • Oh my goodness, this is soooo cute! I love it! Maybe you could make me a Dallas Cowboys one? Or Virginia Tech. Either or both will work. ;) And your pictures look amazing, I can not wait until I get a fancy schmancy camera. Great job as always!

    • Thanks sweet girl! I need some more Clemson friends…Haha! I’m so glad someone noticed my pictures because I was pretty proud of these :)

  • Girl, even though I am not the fan of these colors… I am loving this wreath! You are so crafty!! Can’t wait to see an orange and purple one! :)

    • Thanks, lovely! I’ve got to get my supplies ordered for a Clemson one!

  • Paige, I love this wreath! Where do we put in orders? What a great idea to give it to your friend as a wedding gift. I love that idea.
