Hi ya’ll! In this post I am going to show you how to make a Fall Burlap Wreath. It will take about 10 minutes and will cost under $5!
I enjoy making my own seasonal decor because I LOVE saving money! Yes, sometimes DIY’s can get a little pricey. But I avoid those. I will either repurpose something I already own or I’ll go to my local dollar store for a few cheap supplies. (Which is what I did for this wreath!)
What YOU NEED:
- Wreath ring. (14 inch)
- Burlap Ribbon. (5 inches wide)
- Artificial floral stem.
- Hot Glue gun and glue stick.
How to make a fall burlap wreath
**TIP** Plug in hot glue gun so it is warmed up and ready to use by Step 3!
The first step you will want to take is to tuck the burlap through the wreath in order to keep it in place as you loop it around the wreath ring.
To do that lay your burlap ribbon flat then place the wreath ring on top of it, with the end of the ribbon facing the inner circle. Then loop the end of the burlap over the first ring and under the second. Gently tug on the burlap to ensure that it is secure.
Next you will loosely (but not saggy) wrap the burlap ribbon around the entire wreath ring. Try to keep each loop evenly spaced. (Mine is approximately 2 1/4 inches.)
Once you have looped the entire wreath ring you may notice that the last loop is not evenly spaced. THAT IS OK! Because it will be hidden by your beautiful floral stem.
However, you will first need to cut the burlap ribbon to where the end will be hidden on the backside of the wreath. Then add a few generous dabs of hot glue to secure it.
*Tip*– Add the hot glue to the top of the burlap versus the bottom. This will prevent you from needing to press the burlap into the glue and burning your fingers.
How to add a floral stem to the fall burlap wreath
Once the glue has cooled, add the floral stem.
From the front, carefully guide the stem through the holes of the burlap until it pokes through the backside of the wreath. (e.g.- photo 1) Pull the floral arrangement as close to the wreath as possible. Then you will need to carefully poke the end of the stem underneath a layer of the looped burlap. (e.g.- photo 2) The stem should stay in place, but if it wants to pop up you can easily snip it off with wire or floral cutters. Then add hot glue to the floral arrangement to secure it.
However, if you leave the stem tucked in you can easily turn this “fall” burlap wreath into a “spring/ summer” wreath simply by changing out the floral stem!
This step is probably the hardest…finding the perfect spot to display this beautiful fall burlap wreath!
Here are some recommendations:
- Front door.
- A large window.
- Living room wall.
- Kitchen door.
- Master bedroom.
- Outside under a covered porch. (I can’t guarantee it will hold up to elements if you were to put it in your yard.)
