I love the look of burlap wreaths. In fact, I love the look of burlap. It’s an easy material to work with and fits just about everyone’s budget. You can stick to plain burlap, use one with a black pattern or make your own fun, bright pattern on the burlap.
I used to keep a grapevine wreath on my front door which I would redecorate for each new season. Recently I decided I preferred the look of a burlap wreath, especially a basic one I could modify seasonally.
I found a 12-inch styrofoam wreath form at Michael’s Craft Store for $6.99. At the same storm, I picked up a spool of burlap garland for $7.99. My garland was about 5 inches wide. I ended up folding it in half for the wrapping. This was a little thick for the 12-inch wreath form; I think a 14-inch wreath form would work better.
Using a hot glue gun, I wrapped the garland around the styrofoam wreath form. I hot glued the burlap each time I went around to make sure the burlap stayed in place. I put the ends on the back of the wreath form.
Partway through the wrapping, I unintentionally switched from showing the edge of the burlap to showing the folded edge. I like both looks, and would do it again.
While JoAnn Fabrics this week, I found a spool of florescent green organza with glitter dots. I cut a long piece and used it to tie a bow on my burlap wreath. At the beginning of each season, I can change the bow and tuck in a few silk flowers and leaves for additional decoration.
Total Cost for Spring Wreath: about $10
