Wednesday, June 26, 2013

Hi!  I'm Allie, over from The Random Crafter.  Alyssa was so kind to let me share this simple wreath with you today on her adorable blog.  Hope you enjoy the tutorial on making a burlap wreath which can be dressed up for any season!

Burlap Wreath Tutorial

DIY Burlap Wreath

 If you're looking for an easy craft project this is it! It is simple and affordable.

Burlap Wreath Supplies

Supplies

5 inch burlap 10 yards or 12 yards if you want a fuller wreath
Wire wreath form
Scissors optional
Decorative items to add, like flowers, bows (jute twine or wire to secure it) optional

The supplies can all be found at your local craft store: Michaels, Joann's, Hobby Lobby, or the supplies could be ordered online.  I found the wreath form for $2.99 and the burlap ended up being around $6 with the 40% coupon that I had.  It ended up being a

Under $10 Wreath!
  
I used this tutorial to get me started.
It is a very simple process once you get the hang of it.  You are basically creating different shaped loops by pushing them from the back of the wreath form to the front. 


I alternated between the top, middle and bottom row.  Next you fill in the width of each section with loops.  If you want a fuller wreath then you can squish more loops in each section.  Continue to work your way around the wreath until you end up where you started then loop the burlap back in the back of the wreath once you are finished. 
 
Above is what one of my sections looked like
