I have been wanting to show you how to make this DIY Burlap Wreath for some time now. I thought now would be the perfect time! I have this wreath decorated for Christmas but it can easily be changed up for any season. Just gently pull out any embellishments and and new for the next season. You will get a better idea of how to do this by watching the video tutorial below.
In the video I do speed things up a bit. I want you to know that this wreath is fairly easy to make but is a little time consuming. It will probably take a little bit of time to catch on. But, once it clicks, you will breeze right through making them. I am making mine interchangeable, but you certainly don’t have to do that. You could hot glue any embellishments in place to spruce this wreath up a bit.
- 1 – 14inch wire wreath form – You can sometimes find these at the Dollar tree
- 2 – 30 ft. rolls of 5.5 inch burlap – You can find this at Walmart
- zip ties
- wood cute out – I used a snowflake from Dollar Tree
- white paint
- antique wax
- sanding block
- Craft printer paper – Let it snow, let it snow, let it snow…
- Mod Podge
- any embellishments you may wish to use – I used some pine
Step 1: Fold the end of the burlap in quarters and zip tie it to the bottom or top of one of the wires. Push it down so it is flush with the wire that separates the sections. Stuff some burlap up through each section, making sure they are even, scrunch it down and secure with a zip tie. Now do the same thing going the opposite way. Continue the entire way around the wreath. Make sure it is full. I want to say it took me 4 trips total, 2 up and 2 down, to get each section full enough. I know this may sound very confusing, but it is actually pretty simple. Watching the video tutorial will be very helpful.
Also, you will have a lot of left over burlap. You will only need a small amount of the second roll.
Step 2: You can now paint the snowflake! I painted mine white and sanded it. I then mod podged a cute saying in the middle that I printed onto some craft paper. Once the Mod Podge was dry was dry, I took some antique wax over the entire snowflake, including the craft paper. I left that dry and then put Mod Podge around the edges of the snowflake and added glitter. That was how I made mine, but feel free to make yours any way your hear desires.
Step 3: Attach a piece of tree floral wire to the top of the wreath. This will allow you to easily take one cut out off and add a new one for the following season. If you wish, of course. Maybe you will have so much fun making this that you will want to make one for every season, haha.
Step 4: Once the snowflake is attached you can go back through and embellish with more ribbon. I cut strips of ribbon, about 13 inches long, and just gently slipped them under the wire frame where needed. I didn’t tie them, that way they are easy to pull out for the next season. You will want to dove tail your ribbon for a neater look.
Step 5: I thought it still needed something so I added a few sprigs of pine. My pastor cut down a pine tree and gave me a large garbage bag full, so I wanted to use some.
