Burlap Christmas Wreath

 

 

What You'll Need:

Let's Do This!

Step 1:

Prepping Components

A) Unroll burlap ribbon from a roll. You will need six rolls to make this wreath.

B) Cut twelve 4" pieces of wire and one 10" piece of wire.

Step 2:

Securing Burlap to Frame

A) Bunch the end of a piece of burlap ribbon.

B) Use one of the 4" pieces of wire to attach the bunched end of burlap ribbon to the back of the wreath ring at a crossbar. Twist the wire to secure the burlap in place.  

Step 3:

Making Loops

A) Flip the wreath ring back to the front side. Pull burlap ribbon through the inner ring on the wreath ring, from the back, to make a two inch loop.

B) Pull a second burlap ribbon loop through the middle ring on the wreath ring to create another two inch loop. Repeat on the outer ring of the wreath ring to make a third loop.

C) After the third loop, twist the burlap ribbon twice.

Step 4:

Pull the burlap ribbon through the inner ring of the wreath ring again to make another loop. Tip: You will follow this pattern: inner ring, middle ring, outer ring, twist, repeat. 


Step 5:

A) Repeat process to use the whole roll of burlap ribbon.

B) Secure the end of the piece of burlap ribbon to the back of the wreath ring using another 4" piece of wire. 

 

Step 6:

Repeat steps 2 through 5 to fill the whole wreath ring with burlap ribbon loops. You should be able to fit one roll of burlap ribbon per section of the wreath ring. 


Step 7:

Creating Snowflakes

A) Pull apart eight craft pins and discard the metal springs.

B) Glue two halves of a craft pin together with tacky glue, matching up the flat sides. You'll need eight sets.

C) Use hot glue to attach four of the craft pins together in a cross pattern, as shown.

D) Hot glue the other four craft pins to the snowflake, as shown.

Step 8:

A) Hot glue a pearl to the center of the snowflake.

B) Paint the snowflake white. Let dry.

C) Coat the snowflake with tacky glue.

D) Sprinkle the snowflake with glitter.

 

Step 9:

Make Bow

A) Make the button and first loop of the bow by zig-zagging the ribbon, as shown. The button is a 2" loop and the first loop is a 3 ½" loop. Use your pointer finger and thumb to hold the ribbon.

B) Make the second, third, and fourth loops by zig-zagging the ribbon back and forth. Keep those loops at 3 ½" as well.

C) Pinch the ribbon in the center and then twist the 10" piece of wire around the center to hold the bow.

D) Fluff the loops on the bow and then trim off the excess ribbon from the roll to make the two ribbon tails even. 

Step 10:

Decorating

A) Embellish your wreath with fresh or artificial greens. Secure with hot glue or wire.

B) Tie the bow around your wreath.

C) Add the snowflakes to the wreath with hot glue or wire.

D) Add pinecones to the wreath using hot glue or wire.
