Wreath hanger and Burlap Wreath

I found this cute little cabinet door at our habitat for humanity store (the selection of cabinet doors has been drastically reduced- I hope that won't be permanent!).  It just needed cleaned, fresh cream paint, lightly sanded and brown stain applied to edges.  I'm not perfectly happy with the end finish as the cupboard had almost a "plastic-y" finish that was really weird to work with- but it will do for now.  I added a cute hook from Hobby Lobby - now I can hang a burlap wreath or other such things on it :0)

The wreath is made by taking 3 inch strips of dark brown burlap and bending forward and back while threading onto a metal hanger as shown here- takes five minutes if you really drag your feet dilly dally.

11/9/10  Oops, forgot a step.  After threading the burlap onto the hanger twist it- keep adding burlap until it has the fullness you are looking for.
