I bought 1 yard of shimmery burlap and cut it into 4 inch wide strips. I paid 10 dollars for the yard of burlap at a fabric store and $1.50 for the floral wreath at Michael’s after a 50% off coupon.

– I followed the step from this blog http://housegirlhaley.wordpress.com/2012/12/10/diy-burlap-wreath/

– Once I finished I made pumpkins with the socks and scrubs. The dollar tree had shimmery socks and scrubbers which would go well with the burlap.
