Are you ready for a Burlap Wreath Tutorial? I’ve had this wreath on my door for a week or two now and I’ve had several ask for the details. Here they are….
Supplies needed: (I bought everything at Hobby Lobby)
Wire wreath form (I bought the biggest one – there were 3 sizes)
Burlap (I used 1.5 rolls)
Pipe cleaners (I used brown, only because the taupe ones were sold out.)
Burlap ribbon (2 different prints)
Accessories (pumpkins, flowers, more burlap, etc…)
Spread your pipe cleaners around your wire form. (It was difficult to keep them in place. You could just add them as you go too.) The pipe cleaners are what makes this so easy! No tucking or looping. Just twist and go.
Add the second ribbon. Use different pipe cleaners that you used for the first ribbon.
I wove my two ribbon under and over of each other.
Add your accessories. I didn’t use my orange burlap, but I might add it later. Be sure to tuck in all the ends of your pipe cleaners now.
Didn’t it turn out cute? I love it. It was easier to make than I thought it would be. My 13 year old daughter helped me, but I’m pretty sure she could have done it on her own. It’s that easy!
