With school starting up again soon I realize that much to my dismay, fall is just around the corner. I know, I know, don’t throw things at me! But it’s true!! So while I am buying school supplies for the kids, I am stocking up on craft supplies for me. Seems only fair right!? And today I decided to create a new wreath for my front door. Follow along as I show you how to make a burlap wreath.
This cute little burlap wreath is perfect for fall. It is fun and bright and a great way to transition from summer to winter with a pop of color! Plus it only takes a few minutes to throw together, maybe 20-30 minutes tops! And it’s a great way to update your front door without a lot of time or expense!
How to make a burlap wreath supplies:
- 18″ Metal Wreath Form
- Two Rolls of 2.5″ Burlap Ribbon (I used Turquoise)
- 4″ David Tutera Burlap Flowers (3)
- Large David Tutera Burlap Flowers, 2-pack (4)
- Hot Glue Gun
First you will begin by cutting your burlap ribbon into 12″ long cuts. They do not have to be exact, but if they get too much shorter then 12″ it will be difficult to tie these on. I used nearly 2 full rolls of burlap ribbon to complete this.
Then you will take your burlap cuts and tie it around the wire wreath form. I did not knot it, I just did one tie and it was really secure. If you plan to do two, you will need to allow for more ribbon on each cut.
Smush the tied ribbons close together so that no wreath form shows. Fill the entire wreath form in this manner.
I glued a smaller burlap flower into each of my three large flowers. You don’t have to do this, but I wanted the extra depth, dimension, variety and visual interest in my wreath.
