Easiest Burlap Wreath Ever

My craft closet/area is coming along quite nicely. It is not quite finished but I was able to make a new fall burlap wreath to replace my paper umbrella summer wreath.

Materials for the Easiest Burlap Wreath Ever:

  • Strip of burlap, I bought the spool of six inch burlap
  • Wreath form, styrofoam, pool noodle, whatever you fancy
  • Hot glue gun
  • Embellishments

I reused my summer umbrella wreath form, that wreath never really made me happy. I had great pleasure in removing the umbrellas. Violet was not pleased that she was shut out of Mama's craft area.

I started my wreath by using my hot glue gun to attach the end of burlap. Then roll the burlap around the wreath overlapping. I did two layers so no green foam was showing through. I did a bead of glue in between wrapping the two layers of burlap.

To end the wreath, I folded the end of burlap and glued so I would have a nice finished edge. I still have burlap left over, though probably not enought for a second wreath.

Now at this point you could attach twine or ribbon for a wreath hanger but I just hung my wreath on the nail on my door.

Time for the fun part, embellishments! I went with two clip on orange/red flowers I found at Michael's for $1 each. I like the idea of clips as they are not permanent. I can use this burlap wreath as a base for all types of embellishments and occasions that call for wreaths.

The best part of the easiest burlap wreath ever? Marc noticed it right away when he got home from work. Now I consider that a job well done.

  30. This is really pretty - I want to do one for my front door (to cover the
    glass window) - I'm thinking I can dye the burlap a deep purple.
    Thanks for the idea!
