How to Make a Burlap Wreath
When I drive through my neighborhood I see beautiful front door wreaths on every other door. I see wreaths with the family initial, wreaths made from deco mesh or burlap and artificial flowers.
I see so many great ideas… and then I see my front door. Don’t get me wrong, I really like the look of my front door, but sometimes I want a little something that says hello to visitors. 😉
I recently showed you how to make a foam form from a pool noodle. I used that foam form to create this beautiful burlap wreath.
Now before you look at this wreath and think it’s too difficult, I promise you it isn’t. I am not super crafty and I was able to put this together in no time at all.
Let’s get started with this easy burlap wreath!
It’s so pretty and very simple.
How to decorate a burlap wreath with each holiday:
You can use the same wreath and just adjust it for each holiday. Take off the bow and add a seasonal bow to it.
Another idea is to take off the wooden letter and add something for the holiday. You can add a wooden snowman for winter, a heart for Valentine’s Day, a pumpkin for a fall wreath and so much more!
The wreath ideas are endless for your front door.
I love that I can literally use this all year and not have to make a ton of new wreaths. This saves so much time and money.
How many yards of burlap does it take to make a wreath?
I like to use 30 feet of Burlap Ribbon (5-1/2″ wide) to make sure the wreath form is fully covered.
Materials needed for DIY Burlap Wreath:
- Foam Form (make from pool noodle if you can to save money)
- 30 feet of Burlap Ribbon (5-1/2″ wide)
- Floral Pins
- Wide Ribbon
- Wooden Letter
You can order these supplies on Amazon or check out your local craft store, such as Hobby Lobby. I put links here for a couple of the items just in case you are having trouble finding them locally.
I found the chevron ribbon in the clearance section for just $1.80! I also used my 40% off coupon on one of the rolls of burlap ribbon, so I only paid about $15 for all of the materials to make this wreath.
How to make a burlap wreath easy:
You have probably seen a lot of burlap wreaths that use a wire wreath form. Since we are using a foam form, we need to bunch up our burlap a little differently.
I find this to be way easier then using a wire form. I can’t wait to hear what you think.
How to make a burlap wreath with squares:
1. First, you’ll want to cut a bunch of burlap squares. I thought about buying burlap by the yard, which is a little cheaper then the ribbon, but burlap is very messy to cut.
The premade ribbon is nice because the ends are finished and won’t unravel. Since my ribbon was about 5-1/2 inches wide, I cut strips that were 5-1/2 inches long.
I cut up one whole ribbon and then about 3/4 of the second ribbon. I wouldn’t cut it all because you won’t need it and you might want to use your left over ribbon to hang your wreath.
2. Take one square and bring two opposite corners together, making a triangle. Note the other two corners in the picture labeled “A” and “B”.
3. Fold point B down to meet the other two corners.
4. Then fold point A down to meet the corners. Now you have one nice little poof. You are going to take this poof and attach it to your wreath.
6. Repeat the previous step and place the second poof beside your first poof. They don’t need to be right on top of each other, just make sure they are covering your wreath form on both sides.
7. Make another poof and stick it in between your first two. Continue making your poofs and adding them to your foam form.
I did not count how many I used, I just continued to alternate around the foam form, stepping back every so often making sure it looked alright.
