Basics of Making a Burlap Wreath
A burlap wreath is made with very few supplies. You will need a wire wreath frame, floral wire, and burlap ribbon. That is it. Three simple supplies. You can pick those up at any craft store. I used two different burlaps, one spool of plain burlap and one spool of pattern burlap. I taught myself how to make a burlap wreath awhile back with this tutorial from the YouTube Channel Burlap Wreath. Her steps are simple and she explains each step very well.
Supplies Need For A Personalized Burlap Wreath:
- 1 Spool Burlap Ribbon
- 1 Spool Pattern Burlap Ribbon
- 16′ Wire Wreath Frame
- Floral Wire
- Large Last Name Initial
You can pick up all of these supplies at your local craft store such as JoAnne’s. *CLICK HERE for Joann.com. I personally like the floral wire that is self-cutting. If you don’t have this kind you will need wire cutters. The letter P I used was actually just plain wood. I painted it black with acrylic paint and covered it in a sealant. I wanted the black to match our front door. Bonus that it was more cost effective to do this.
Steps To Make a Burlap Wreath
1. Turn the wire frame upside down. Fold the end of the plain burlap in a fourth and attach with floral wire to the first ring of the wreath frame.
2. Turn the wreath back around. Push a fold of burlap through each section of the frame. When you get the last section bunch up the three folds and twist the back piece.
3. After the twist, push a fold of burlap through the first section again. Then repeat what you did in Step 2. Push folds of burlap through each section until you get the to last section, then bunch and twist.
4. Continue this pattern of pushing folds of burlap through each section, bunching and twisting once you get the last section until you use up your plain burlap ribbon. Attach the end piece to the frame with the floral wire.
5. In the remaining section, use the patterned ribbon. Attach it the same way you did the plain burlap. When your wreath is full, cut the end and attach it with the floral wire. “Fluff” up the folds to hide any wire and make the wreath look very full.
6. After assessing your wreath and making sure it is the way you want it. It’s time to add your initial. Using the floral wire and if you prefer, a little hot glue, attach your initial to the wreath frame.
7. Make a bow with the remaining pattern ribbon and attach the bow center with a few pieces of floral wire.
Finished Burlap Wreath
Once your wreath is complete, take a wreath hanger and put it up on your front door! Seriously, such an easy project! If you step back and your burlap wreath did not turn out the way you thought it would, you can fluff up the loops more, add additional burlap or add additional embellishments. The best part about this project is that it can be customized to your style!
I love the look of our new burlap wreath! It pairs so nicely with our house and my ghost, pumpkins and the DIY Flower Pots I previously made.
