Super Easy Burlap Wreath

I believe it is safe to say that while I definitely enjoy crafting, I enjoy crafting a billion times more when it is easy and painless (the hot glue gun is my enemy). I also feel that a quick project is a great *fix* for my nervous energy on a random weeknight, and it is wiser for me to save the time-consuming projects for the weekend. Otherwise, I tire quickly, and end up leaving half-finished projects strewn about the house until Saturday morning rolls around. That said, I present to you a lovely, simple, and quick project you can do, on your couch, while enjoying your DVRed episodes of The Daily Show & The Colbert Report after work. Or maybe that’s just me.

The Super Easy Burlap Wreath

I am experiencing a burlap phase. I’m having a great time experimenting with burlap, and collecting ideas on Pinterest. I plan to incorporate burlap in my rustic, autumn wedding, so many of these burlap experiments may inspire some wedding decor ideas.

This wreath was oh-so-easy! I was inspired by this version on Top this Top That.

You will need:

~ A wire wreath form

~ Burlap ribbon (I used about 2 and a half rolls of 4″ burlap ribbon from Michael’s)

~ Floral wire

The wreath form pictured above is 12″ in diameter, however I actually ended up using a larger, 22″ form.

To start, weave a piece of floral wire through the end of your burlap ribbon. Attach the ribbon to the frame.

Now, begin to ‘loop’ the burlap through the wreath form. Basically, the idea is to create loops in varying sizes and directions through the rings of the form.

I followed a weaving pattern, from the outside ring through to the inside ring and back out again, creating loops & occasionally ‘squishing’ everything towards the start to create a full look.

When the ribbon ran out, I tied it off using the floral wire and started a new roll. Here I am just over halfway finished and moving on to my final roll of burlap.

It took me about 30 minutes to complete the wreath. There is something about the combination of rustic, natural looking burlap and this cheerful, loopy look that just works so perfectly!

Pictured with the wreath are my Stenciled Frames & a bowl of Book Page Decoupaged Fruit.

Hope you enjoy!

  2. im confused, did you continue by securing the loops with the floral wire onto the wreath form? I love how fluffy this looks!

  3. How do you make your loops? Do you weave the burlap under,over,under,over? I’m trying to make a wreath today and I just can’t seem I get it right. I would greatly appreciate your help.

    • You make the loops by weaving the burlap through the rings of the wreath form, leaving loops as you go. You’ll want to push them closely together to get the completed look! Good luck!

  4. Can I use 2″ burlap and just double the amount I need to make a full wreath?? Live in a rural community and have only found 2″ and am so anxious to try one

  5. Your wreath is beautiful…but I’m not quite following how you “weaved” it. Did you keep the ribbon on the backside of the form and pulled the loops through to the front? It would be great be great if you had a picture you could post!

  6. Thanks for sharing! I’ve been stalking all the blogs on how to make a burlap wreath. Want to make these for my PreK daughters teacher and teachers aide. I know a lot of people are confused on how to “weave” the burlap. I’m a visual person and need to actually watch something first hand. I can’t learn by looking at pics SOOO with that being said…hope you don’t mind..I found a youtube video of a lady who shows you how to weave a wreath. I don’t think it’s the exact same way you do yours but it might help others out! Helped me at least!! lol In case the link doesn’t work her name is Lisa Somerville..that’s her Youtube page. http://youtu.be/p4G52mNW92k
