The winter season is upon us. And you know what that means… decorations! As soon as Turkey day has passed I’m the first one to head to the garage and bust out the holiday decor from years past.
But I also love crafting a few new pieces for each year as well! And this year I decided to update our old yarn Christmas wreath with this burlap Christmas wreath.
I love burlap and this is a REALLY simple DIY project. It took about 30 minutes from start to finish and I didn’t get hurt! Now that’s a major plus.
Burlap Christmas Wreath Tutorial
What you need:
- wreath form (I used a straw wreath)
- burlap garland
- red burlap ribbon (not pictured)
- piece of scrap burlap string
- mini glass ornaments
- hot glue gun
What you do:
1. Wrap wreath form with burlap.
2. Secure end of burlap with a t-pin.
3. Wrap ribbon on top of burlap leaving small gaps to let the burlap show through. Secure ends of ribbon together with a t-pin once you’ve wrapped it once around the wreath.
4. Make a bow out of burlap and secure to side of wreath with t-pin.
5. String together ornaments, alternating colors, onto a piece of burlap string (usually there’s one holding together the roll of burlap). Measure how many you need by placing string of ornaments up onto wreath.
6. Secure string of ornaments to wreath at an angle with t-pins by wrapping each end around t-pin before inserting it into the wreath.
7. Prop the wreath up to allow ornaments to hang down. Using a glue gun, attach ornaments together so that they stay in place when hung up and don’t overlap.
8. Loop a piece of ribbon on the top of the wreath and tie ends in a knot or bow. Attach wreath to the door and enjoy!
