Yet Another Burlap Wreath

Burlap Wreath
The first time I did this, I used an old metal coat hanger. I thought I’d get all professional and splurged on a 2.99 metal frame from Hobby Lobby (that’s right, didn’t even use a 40% off coupon). The frame created a wreath that is much larger than the coat hanger, but I like the looks of it on my door! This one is for a friend, but I had to “try it out” :)¬†Check out my original tutorial here!
I started with a couple yards of burlap, which I cut into (roughly) 6″ wide strips. I have just found this way to be cheapest. You can buy already cut burlap, or burlap ribbon on a reel, but it does tend to be more expensive. The burlap ribbon is a nice option, because the sides are finished and makes a very clean looking wreath. Using strips like this, there is a lot of fraying that takes place and it can look a little messy if you don’t fold it and bunch it right. I folded the edges all down and hot glued them in place to hide any ugly edges. However, some people like the more rustic, messy look!
In the above picture, I am trying to show how you can form a loop, push it up through the wreath form, and then push 2 more loops up through. It is hard to explain, see the video below!

    So I am just finishing up my burlap wreath. I went with just getting 2 yards and cutting strips of about 8″ in width. I definitely recommend getting a burlap ROLL. I was struggling with all the loose/fraying edges. Kind of makes the process frustrating.
    Thanks for the great tutorial!

    We just had a wedding using miles of burlap. Looking forward to a craft day to repurpose table runners into these beautiful wreaths to give for hostess gifts throughout the holidays. This tutorial is the best one I’ve seen. I actually think I can do this project thanks to your nifty video!

    After watching you make this wreath with one hand, I decided that I probably could make one with two! Your wreath is lovely! Thanks for sharing!
