Easy burlap wreath

It’s a wreath party!

easy burlap wreathThere’s nothing like a new wreath to usher in a new season! I first started seeing burlap wreaths on Pinterest, and then when The Nester invited bloggers to make a wreath and post it in September, I knew I had to try to make one.

It was really pretty easy. It takes a little time though, so I suggest inviting over some girlfriends and catching up on your favorite mindless television!

Here’s what you need:

1 yard burlap (I used 1/2 a yard of cream burlap and 1/2 a yard of green burlap)

1 12-inch foam floral wreath

Push pins and scissors

Cut the burlap into 4″ x 4″ squares, lots of them!

Fold the burlap, first bringing opposite corners together, then fold the outside corners in, making a little bubble. Then start pinning to the wreath. I made two rows of green and two rows of cream. Just start from the inside and work your way out!

I hung mine with a ribbon I found in my gift wrap stash, but I thought about hanging it without a ribbon.

What do you think? I love it, and might have to make another! And seriously, check out the wreaths over at The Nester, they’re amazing!

  1. Wow. I love that wreath! It is gorgeous. And looks way more complex than it is!

    • Those are my favorite projects, the ones that give me crafty street cred, yet are really super easy. We’d love to see your take on Andrea’s burlap beauty!

  2. Loving this! I always make grandma-looking wreaths, so am totally going to try this technique!

  3. Andrea, I love it! I haven’t gotten into the wreath frenzy yet, but I just might be ready to! I mostly want to make a succulent wreath, but I don’t think it would be a very good idea inside my apartment :)

  4. You were one of my most favorite links at last week’s {wow me} wednesday party. Featuring YOU over on my blog today. Thanks so much for sharing!
