Fall Burlap Wreath DIY

by Johnnie Collier

How to Make a Wreath

Who can get enough of burlap these days?  There are so many fabulous fall wreaths out there incorporating the versatile fabric.  I snatched up a roll of burlap garland at a garage sale awhile back, and used it to make this quick and easy fall wreath.  Grab a wire hanger and craft your very own.

Supplies:

  • Roll of “burlap garland”.  Not sure exact yardage on this one.  Also not sure where you can buy it since I got it at a yard sale.
  • Wire hanger
  • Flower embellishments of your choice
  • Ribbon to hang wreath

Instructions:

  • Clip the coils and hook of the hanger and shape the remaining wire into a circle, as best you can.  Mine was far from perfect, and my wreath looks good.

  • Next, fold the burlap every couple of inches to make a ruffle, and stick the hanger through the stack of ruffles.
  • How to Make a WreathWhen it is as full as you want, twist the wire ends around one another and tuck them behind the ruffles to hide them.
  • Hot glue flowers of your choice.  I used some scrapbook embellishment paper flowers and a felt flower.  Tie your ribbon at the top and that is that!
