How to Make a Burlap Wreath

If you want to make a burlap wreath of your own, but are afraid that a lot of cutting will be involved, then you have come to the right place. This method does not involve a lot of cutting and sewing and is budget friendly as well.

Things Required:

- Burlap cloth or strips in colour of your choice (two yards of cloth or 24 feet of 8-inch-wide wreath)
- A 14 inch straw wreath frame
- Scissor
- Thread
- Hot glue
- Suitable embellishments of your choice

Instructions

  • 1

    Buy some burlap

    Buy two yards (1.8 meters) of burlap cloth in a colour of your choice. Cut the cloth into eight inch (20 cm) wide strips. You can also use loosely woven garland, but that is a bit expensive as compared to burlap.

    Get a wire wreath

    Grab yourself a straw wreath frame. A straw wreath can be easily found at a craft store. You can also use a wire wreath but that does not make any difference, since it will be completely wrapped in the burlap.

    Wrap the burlap around the wreath

    Take a strip of burlap and wrap it around the straw wreath. To make sure that your burlap stays in place, apply a strip of hot glue on the wreath every once in a while.

    Wrap slightly twisted burlap around the wreath

    Now take another strip of burlap and loosely twist it. Start wrapping the twisted strip around the wreath. However, don’t apply glue this time. Apply glue only after you are satisfied with the look of the twisted burlap. Once you are sure that all the twists are to your liking, put dots of hot glue to fix them. Tuck in the end of the burlap once again using a dot of hot glue.

    Decorate your wreath

    Decorate the wreath with different artificial flowers, bows and floral sprays of your choice. One beautiful and easy to make shape is rosette. Take a three inch wide strip of burlap. Fold the end of the strip in half and then again in half. Roll the folded end a few times to make a small knot. Now twist the remaining part of burlap and start wrapping it around the knot to give it the shape of a rosette. Apply some hot glue on an extra piece of burlap, place the rosette on it and tuck the end in. Cut around the rosette and hot glue it to the wreath.
