WHOA. I did a DIY. I actually kind of made one up – WHO AM I?! But do y’all want to know a secret? I actually tried to do several other different “easy” versions of a burlap wreath I found on Pinterest before I gave up and called my mom.
Yes, I called my mom. Because I don’t do things like DIY burlap wreaths all on my very own, and my mom knows how to do basically anything and everything. Someday I hope to be like her!
So here’s the deal you guys: I am not a DIY blogger and as such didn’t take pictures of every step with neatly numbered instructions and links for all the things. I bought a wire wreath form and two 10-foot spools of burlap ribbon from Walmart, then used a couple of cloth flowers that were hanging out in our laundry room. VOILA. Done and done.
BUT since I think it would be pretty cool if y’all decided to make one of these bad boys yourselves, I am happy to share the instructions! Once I actually took the time to sit down and start it took me all of 20 minutes from first half hitch loop to the final flower. And the options for decorations on these is endless, you could use different colors/types of burlap ribbon, whatever!
What you need:
- one wire wreath form
- two 30-foot spools of burlap ribbon
- flowers, leaves, pine cones, etc. as decoration
- floral wire (to attach decorations if needed)
- Take two ends of the ribbon and tie them onto the wire form; one on the inside, the other on the outside.
- Keeping one spool on your right side and one on your left side, start the half hitch loops.
- Take one spool and cross over the top of the wreath form, then pull the spool through the loop and tighten.
- Repeat on the opposite side.
- Continue making half hitch loops over the wire form, pushing the burlap together to keep the wreath form from showing through.
- At the end, tie the two ends together at the back of the wreath.
- Attach flowers/leaves/etc. as desired with the floral wire.
- Hang the wreath on your door!
I hope you guys love it!!!
