Isn’t this such a pretty wreath? And it is one that will get noticed! Could you see this one your front door?
Burlap wreath diy…
The amount of materials you need will depend on how big your wreath is and how large the loops of burlap on the wreath.
The black and white ribbon and pumpkins were used to decorate FALL BURLAP WREATH DIY HERE.
For the basic wreath, you will need…
- 20- inch wire wreath frame See it HERE
- 40-inch jute burlap ribbon See it Here I used 3 1/2 rolls for a 20-inch wreath form
MAKING A BURLAP WREATH
This burlap wreath diy is a bit different than how many burlap wreaths are usually made. It’s just as easy but holds up much better.
Start by cutting a length of burlap ribbon about 6 feet long. You can decide the length that is comfortable for you.
Start the wreath by weaving an end of the burlap ribbon in the wreath form as shown below.
Working with the other end of the ribbon and
Bring the burlap over the outside slat and weave it over, under to the end of the frame. Pull the end until there is a 3-inch long tail.
Holding on to the tail pull up the ribbon that was weaved over the frame into a 3-inch loop.
Take the end of the ribbon and weave it over and under until the end of the frame again. And make 3-inch loops of the ribbon woven over the frame.
Continue until you have 3 inches left at the end of the burlap ribbon.
Now, cut another length of burlap ribbon and continue the process over again pushing the loops tightly together.
Continue this process until the wreath is full.
Cut the ends of the burlap ribbon into french tails.
This wreath can be a bit addictive!
This burlap wreath diy this way has one very big advantage over the old way to make it! The loops do not fall apart! So much better! And very easy!
