Make Your Own Seasonal Burlap Wreath

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. Make Your Own Seasonal Burlap Wreath

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

    that is so pretty. Love the green ribbon, so Spring like. It’s like a garden wreath. The burlap is neat-so earthy.

    This is so cute. I have been guilty of keeping a grape vine wreath on my door for too long. I love burlap and have seen some really cute patterns painted on the burlap at the fabric store.
    Great idea, easy too!
