The trick to cutting burlap is to push apart the threads before you cut (cutting down the path you just made between rows). I did that haphazardly in this case so that many of the pieces would be frayed. I also measured lazily, so I had to trim a few long pieces after I’d tied on enough burlap on to hide the metal ring beneath. Most wreaths require many more steps – I wanted it to be as straightforward as possible, with no messy glue.

The burlap bag I used was filled with holes and otherwise, it would have ended up in the trash or wood stove fire, so I was happy to give it one last use.
