SUPPLIES FOR A BURLAP WREATH

  • 24″ wire wreath form
  • 2 x 10 yard rolls of burlap ribbon*
  • scissors

*I ended up using a full 10 yard roll plus about 1/3 of a second roll for this wreath, but you may need more if you want it extra full.

BURLAP WREATH TUTORIAL

Pull a loop of burlap through the first, second and third hole in the wreath form, as shown in the image above.

Then you do what I’ll call the “squish & twist” method.  You squish the three loops to one side to make room for the next set of loops.

Then you flip the wreath over and twist the burlap to lock it in place.  After your twist, start back at the beginning, pulling loops through the first, second, and third holes in the wreath form.

Do this until your form is fully covered and as thick as you like.  Fluff your burlap loops until the wire is no longer visible.

I found this gorgeous plaid ribbon, and my little deer head, at my favorite place, Woodstock Market.  To make the ribbon, I just made loops in my hand then cinched the center with a pipe cleaner.  I went back and added a piece of the plaid ribbon to the center to cover the pipe cleaner.

I used another pipe cleaner to attach the deer head to the wire form, then did the same to attach the ribbon.
