Burlap Wreath

Fall is probably my favorite time of year. I love the cooler (but not cold) days and all the beautiful colors. It’s so fun to add a little bit of Fall color to our home and this wreath does just that!

This wreath is not hard to make, but it does take some time. So turn on your favorite movie and get started…

Here’s what you’ll need:

  • 2 yards orange burlap (or your favorite color)
  • 10-inch wire wreath form (like this one)
  • About 1 yard (2-1/2-inch wide) ribbon (I used wire-edged ribbon)

Cut the burlap into 8-inch x 2-inch strips. Then simply tie them with a single knot onto the wreath form as closely together as you can. Be sure to tie them on all three circles of the form. Tie a bow from the 2-1/2-inch wide ribbon and attach it to the wreath. I did this by threading some thin twine through the back of the knot on the bow and tying it around the center circle of the wreath form. You can use any kind of string or twine to do this since you won’t be able to see it. Fluff up the wreath and you’re done!

The wreath forms come in different sizes and are available at most craft stores (so use your coupons). If you go larger, keep in mind you may need more burlap to get the full fluffiness of the wreath. And there are also pre-tied bows available so you won’t have to tie your own if you’d rather not.

There are so many different colors of burlap to choose from and the choice of ribbons is endless! This wreath can easily be adapted to any decor ~ soft colors for a baby nursery or Springtime, Christmas colors, or bright, happy colors for Summer. The choice is yours! Happy tying 🙂

Thanks for stopping by,
