How to Make a Burlap Wreath

Posted by on May 23, 2013 in burlap, crafts, wreaths | 9 comments

I broke one of my cardinal rules of grocery shopping last night.

My kiddos are having movie day at school today.

This means that they are allowed to bring a drink and special snack.

So, in a moment of weakness. . .

. . . I bought a can of Pringles.

(Such a delicacy is usually saved only for our annual beach trip.)

When I arrived home with them,

I quickly made up 2 baggies of the dried potato goodness.

The problem then was,

the can had been opened.

Once the can is open,

it is all over. . .

So, as I sit here and enjoy Pringles for my breakfast. . .

. . . I will show you how I make a burlap wreath.

Yes, I realize that there are thousands of tutorial out there.

But, I have learned how it works best for me.

Supplies:

1 wire wreath form

1 15 ft. roll of 5″ ribbon

1 15ft. roll of 7 1/2″ ribbon

Whatever you want to embellish it with!

Start with the wider ribbon.

Coming from underneath the form,

pull about 2 inches through the bottom opening.

Do the same thing on the 2nd opening.

Continue to pull loops through every slot the entire way around the form.

Now take the 5″ ribbon and pull a loop through the bottom opening.

Notice that I adjust this loop to be going vertical to the form.

I usually add 1 – 2 loops per section.

This helps to fill in gaps.

On this one, I added a flat back watering can.

And, yes, the Pringles are now gone. . .

I wish you had been here. . .

. . . I could have shared them with you!

It would have saved me about 300 calories!

What is your food weakness?

Life to the full!

  1. Chocolate! And your wreath is lovely Melissa! I have not made one with the burlap ribbon before, it looks great :)

    xo, Tanya

  2. Please unsubscribe me at your earliest convenience. Thank you.

  3. Well now I have much better idea how to wrap one of those wreath forms. I’ve always hesitated before as I thought it would take too much fabric to cover adequately. I have some of the 5″ I think, just need to get the wider stuff.
    Your wreath looks so pretty with the watering can on it. You make it look so easy and quick. Having availability to the burlap ribbon now makes it much easier to do. Think also the ribbons are 1/2 off at HL this week. Awesome.
    Where will you put your wreath? I’m finally getting the big metal cone I have painted so can fill it, hang on porch railing I think. It’s too big to go on front door with the storm door. Got bunch of greenery yesterday at Habitat to fill it, yay.
    I was looking for another flat backed open work metal cone out in shed but (shudder) who knows where that box is now, hubs has been rearranging. So decided to paint one of two I know where they are. They’re coppery so I put a paint on them to look like a patina. It’s Ocean Breeze color in Craft Smart paint (Michaels), let it dry some then rubbed off. Like it much better now. Need to have hubs drill two holes in back so I can hang it where ever I hang it.
    Uh about those Pringles, oh boy do I know what you mean. Once that can is open, well bye bye chips. Love those darn things but don’t buy them very often as I know what will happen to them when I do, (guilty, guilty).
    Hope you have great holiday weekend. If the weather cooperates we’re going to state park with lake on Monday. It’s only about 7 1/2 miles from our house. Have fun.

  4. Dark chocolate covered edamame from Trader Joes. Worth a trip for you into Nashville :)!

  5. So cute, and the tutorial actually looks like something I could do! Food weakness? Movie Popcorn. I cannot sit through a movie without a jumbo size of Popcorn in my lap, extra, extra fake butter please!

  6. Thanks for sharing your tips on making a burlap wreath. I like how you embellished it with a watering can for summer. My poor front door has been bare since Easter and I need to get busy and craft something fun for summer.

  7. This is super adorable!

  8. Great wreath. Sometimes you’ve got to live a little and enjoy the Pringles.

    Thank you for being a part of Seasonal Sundays.

  9. This is so pretty! I love how chunky the burlap looks… I didn’t realize that you had to use a special wreath form to get that look. And the watering can is a fun touch! Great job!

    We’d love for you to share this at Much Ado About Monday, if you get a chance! http://www.huckleberrylove.com/2013/05/much-ado-about-monday-no-11.html
