Homemade Burlap Wreath

I'm sure many of you have heard of the website Pinterest, for those of you who are not familiar, it is a site you can "pin" ideas to. I personally have become addicted to the site. One of my many finds were directions on how to make a burlap wreath. Amanda from My Heart's Desire has wonderful and easy directions on how to make the base of the burlap wreath. I followed the directions for the most part.

Here is how I made my wreath.

Items required:
18 inch wire wreath- Bought at Michael's
2- 10 yard rolls of burlap garland- Bought at Michael's
Floral Wire
Felt Flowers (optional and not pictured)

Start at the top inner loop of the wreath and tie the burlap down with the floral wire. I then made 7-8 inch loops, tied them down with the floral wire and continued around the inner loop.

After I was finished with the inner loop I cut the burlap and tied the last loop down. I then started on the outer loop of the wreath.

At this point I realized I needed the second 10 yard roll of burlap. I took a quick trip back to Michael's to buy the second roll. I finished the outer layer of the wreath and was not happy with how it was looking. I took my extra burlap and started to fill in the wreath between the two layers of burlap. I just filled it in with loops until I was happy with the appearance.

After I had finished the wreath I attached the two felt flowers with clips and floral wire. The flowers are detachable and I can change out the decorative piece(s) to suit the time of season or festivity. I'm extremely happy with the final product!


  1. Your way is much more efficient than mine, ha! Love it!! I saw that "ribbon" at Michael's...I'd love it if you'd share it on my blog's FB many have pinned this tutorial, but I bet they'd love the option of the already-prepared burlap!

    Thanks for the shout-out!

  2. I just found your blog and I love this wreath! You have so many great projects! I would love you to stop by my blog on Tuesday. I am starting a link up for awesome projects like yours in the hope that more people can discover the projects we've all made and love. The link up is especially for older projects that we feel didn't get enough attention.
    So stop by on Tuesday!
