Hey Y’all!

Happy Hump Day!

So…the weather has been absolutely GORGEOUS here in the last week! Temperatures have been in the 70′s most days & the nights have been cool & crisp! We’ve been opening our windows at night & enjoying the fresh air! It’s been absolutely marvelous! 

With the change in the weather, I have been itching to do some fall decorating! The last few weeks of our summer took a toll on all of my flowers & so the first order of business was to spruce up things outside! That being said, I’ve been working on the front porch the last couple of days & decided that I needed a new wreath for the front door. I have been wanting to make a burlap wreath for our front door for some time now…..basically, ever since I saw Laura’s wreath! Jealous much?!

Anyway, I thought a burlap wreath would be perfect for fall, so I finally picked up some things to make one of my own! I’m so happy with how it turned out that I thought I would share it with you today! It was super easy to make & I hope that after reading this tutorial that you’ll try your hand at a Burlap Fall Wreath too!

Burlap Fall Wreath Tutorial

Well, what do you think?! 

You like? Wanna make one for yourself?

 

If so, here’s what you’ll need:

Burlap Fall Wreath 15

Supplies:

16″ Green Wire Wreath Form

2.5″ Burlap Ribbon

Fall Picks

Pipe Cleaners and/or Floral Wire

Hot Glue (not shown)

Jute (not shown)

Chevron Burlap Ribbon (optional, not shown)

Pick a starting point on the wreath form & attach your burlap ribbon using a pipe cleaner and/or floral wire. Once attached, begin by making loops in the ribbon by inserting it into the three openings on the wreath form. Always start at the inside of the wreath form & work your way out.

Then, you will basically repeat these steps all the way around the wreath form. After you complete each row, push it over to make room for the subsequent rows. The wire wreath form is divided into sections. I always did three rows of loops in each section. This kept the loops tight within the wreath form & ensured that they wouldn’t fall out.

Burlap Fall Wreath 8

I spool of burlap ribbon I was using, was 10 yards (or 30 feet) long. It got me about 3/4 of the way around the wreath form & then I ran out. I had picked up a black chevron burlap ribbon to possibly add as a bow when the wreath was finished, but because I was out of the plain burlap, I decided to improvise. I attached the chevron burlap ribbon (again, using a pipe cleaner) & started looping it inside the openings of the wreath form until the wreath was full.

I decided that instead of adding a chevron bow, I would just have some black chevron ribbon loops instead! It actually worked out perfect! Looking back, I think a full size bow would have been too much anyway!

Then I began adding my fall picks to the wreath. Using some jute twine, I tied the picks to the green wire wreath form.

Then I just used a little bit of hot glue to attach the other adornments.

Are you the type that usually makes a wreath or do you just go out & buy one instead?

  1. Gorgeous! Love it!

  2. I absolutely love this!! I’m hoping to get a burlap wreath made this week and I like the loop idea. Between yours and Kim’s (Sand and Sisal), I’ve got some great inspiration and ideas to get me moving in the right direction. Thanks for inspiring, Tonya!

  3. Love that you incorporated the chevron ribbon, Tonya! I’ve done a couple of these and love how easy and festive they are. Thanks for sharing your twist!

  4. I am totally NOT crafty but want to be! This is a dumb question, but how did you attach the twist tie to the burlap and then the wreath? Is there any hope for me??! :) THANKS!

    • No question is ever dumb! :) You just make a small hole in the burlap ribbon, stick the twist tie through the hole, and then wrap it around the wreath form.

  5. What a cute wreath! I’ve been looking for a wreath to make for our front door this fall and have definitely pinned this one to my Fall board. :) Thanks for instructions!

  6. I haven’t tried it with the loop method, just wish push pins into Styrofoam… this looks MUCH easier. I love the feathers on it!

  7. Your wreath is absolutely stunning! Wish I had the creative genius for that. :P

  8. love the unique take on a burlap wreath! turned out very pretty!

  9. LOVE THIS!!!!! Wish I was this Creative

  10. This is so pretty, Tonya! I love the feathers for fall!!

  11. I love it! Quick question- how is this attached to your door? I have the half moon window front door like you and the hangers always look funny on it! I like what you did!

  12. I love the chevron burlap in it! You did a fantastic job! Beautiful!

  13. Your directions say 4″ burlap ribbon, I could only find wired ribbon around 2″ in the brand you show in picture from Hobby Lobby. Is it really 4″ wide and is it wired?thanks!

    • Hi Celina!
      I had to go measure the burlap on my door. It is actually 2.5″ wide. Sorry, that was my mistake! And yes, it is wired.

  14. Oh good!! I bought the right stuff! Lol! Thanks for checking…I hope mine turns out as cute as yours!!

  15. Hi, I’m new here! This wreath is really very nice! ciao from Italy :-)

  16. your wreath is adorable! can you tell me where you found those cute little pumpkins? I’ve actually searched for those little buggers with no luck! Did you find the burlap sunflowers at the same place?? thanx :)

  17. can you please tell me where you got those adorable little grapevine pumpkins?? I have actually been searching for those little buggers everywhere with no luck:( did you get the burlap sunflowers at the same place?? thanx :)

  18. Love this! I like to make wreaths, but getting the embellishments just right is so frustrating to me. Your embellishments are perfect!!!

  20. I simply love this!!! My old wreath has about seen it’s last days. I may have to make this. Thank you! I did share a photo and a link back on my latest post.

  21. I simply love this! My fall wreath has seen better days. I need to go shopping for supplies! Thank you! Oh, I shared a photo and a link back on my latest post.

  22. Love this. After doing each row of 3 loops (top to bottom), did you go back to the top to start the next row down or start at the bottom and work up? Does this make sense?

    • It’s hard to remember because it’s been over a year ago, but I think after I went top to bottom, I went bottom to top. And the just kept alternating.
