Burlap Flower Wreath Tutorial








Here is a wreath that I picked up at my local thrift store for $.39.



Before...





{Yikes!}


Here is the transformation.





After... 








 



 




Tutorial:

 To make this wreath you will need:

  • Wreath Form 
  • Ribbon (1 1/2" wide) -- about 30-45 16" pieces
  • Fabric -- for wrapping the wreath
  • Ribbon -- 24" approx. for hanging
  • Supplies for flower

Wrap a long strip of fabric around the wreath to completely cover it and hot glue in place. 




{This prevents the wreath from peeking through the ribbon. 
It also keeps the wreath from shedding while putting it together.}

 Begin tying the ribbon onto the wreath. 




I tied each piece in a knot crossing right over left then right over left again.






Continue adding ribbon until the wreath is completely covered.  



To make the burlap flower follow the tutorial here.



Attach the flower with hot glue and use coordinating ribbon to hang the wreath.





 Enjoy!

  12. That turned out just as cute as a button!

    I remember making wreaths like this using torn scraps of fabric and wire clothes hanger in the early '90's ...
    never thought of using an actual wreath.

    So cute!
    love the burlap too.

  16. My sister just sent me your blog...I LOVE IT!! I love how simple this is! I just made a burlap wreath by wrapping the burlap around a wooden wreath I got at the dollar store, and then made some flowers to go on it using an old sweater! This wreath you made looks so simple and it would be a great Christmas gift! Thanks for the idea!!
