As lovely as the Rustic DIY wreath looks I would have really appreciated some step out pictures. I am not sure I understand how to make each floral. But it definitely is a beautiful looking wreath. And where does one find the burlap in different colors? And if I dont have those Aleene sheets is there another way to make the florettes.

I do a lot of substituting when it comes to things like this. I suspect any fabric would work in place of burlap but if you want the same effect, you could tease the cut edges. As far as Alene's tacky pages, I don't know, but why not try tacky glue or double sided tape, then use the stapler to make it stay?
