There are at least a zillion tutorials for burlap wreaths online. I looked at at least half of them before coming up with my own version. It’s really easy and pretty darn cheap. I’d say I spent a little less than $15 for this wreath! And I kept my colors very neutral, so I can keep this wreath up all year.
What you’ll need:
straw or foam wreath
1 1/2 yards burlap (any color you wish)
straight pins with a flat head
tulle or ribbon for a bow
Start by cutting your burlap into 4×4 squares.
Take a square and fold it in half, pinching opposite corners together.
While holding the first two corners, fold the OTHER two corners together, so all four corners are pinched together. You’ll have a little puff of burlap.
Take a pin and poke it through all four layers of burlap and pin it onto the wreath. If you missed a layer, just try again. The great thing about working with pins is that if you mess up or some fabric comes unpinned, you can easily fix the mistake.
Keep going with the squares, rotating to make a nice, full design. Once your wreath is covered to your liking, you’re done! Just a note- the pins will come off every once in a while, so you may want to reinforce some loose areas with extra pins.
I used this tutorial to make a tulle bow, but you can make one any way you like.
Hang on the front door and admire!!!
