Burlap Wreath

My door (and entire porch) is lacking in the fall decor. Tomorrow night we have my husbands birthday party at our house in which we are expecting 30 people for the 2nd annual Chicken Wing Off (I will post pictures of the party). My front door needed some help...and quick! Last week, Abby sent me a photo of a burlap wreath she had seen at a craft store. I loved it (especially because I am loving burlap these days). This was one of the quickest, cheapest, and cutest projects I have done. It honestly took me less than 30 minutes to do. Here is how I did it....

1yd of burlap
1 metal wreath base
flowers or decor of your choice

 1. Cut the burlap into strips (the strips depend on the size of metal wreath base you are using). Play around with different sizes to decide what size strips you want. Burlap makes such a mess so I always put a sheet under my burlap project (or just do all of the cutting outside).

2. Tie the strips around the metal base...and tie...and tie...

and tie...

3. Once you are done, add your choice of decor! Simple, huh?!

I am planning on changing the decor on the wreath for the different holidays.

Remember to send me a photo if you make one!

  1. This is so cute! Love the idea of using burlap for a fall wreath. And I'm thinking of all the fabric I have in my basement that would work for a variation of this project.

  2. @Kim,
    Thank you! Make sure to send me a picture when you're done. I am sure there are endless possibilities with this! I am tempted to try one for Christmas using green and red burlap or even just a neat holiday fabric.

  3. How cute! I love the burlap, and I can picture it for Christmas also....hum....
    Thanks for the inspiration!
    PS-thanks for linking back to me the other day =)

  4. Thanks so much for linking up to Dare to DIY! It's a fabulous project and could work for so many holidays.

    Of course, I didn't make this project. Yet. But when I do, I'll totally let you know!

  5. so so cute! go you!!! ive been too afraid to try it but I may just have to now! :) blessings to you today!!

  6. I love this wreath. I've always wanted to make one with quilting fabrics in Christmas colors. Would you cut cotton fabric with pinking shears to cut down on the mess/fraying in the tying process?

  7. This is beautiful! Must make one now!
