How to make a burlap wreath.
To begin, fold the burlap ribbon down and over to form a 3-4″ loop. Working from the back of the wreath to the front, press the loop up and through the innermost ring of the wreath form. Secure the ends with a section of the floral wire or a twist tie.
Fold the ribbon again to form another loop, and push this loop through the middle ring of the form, directly next to the first loop. Create another loop in the same fashion in the outermost ring of the wreath form, so that you have a single complete burlap row.
When the first row is complete, flip the wreath over and twist the end of the burlap 3-4 times to secure.
Fold another loop and press it up and through the innermost ring of the form, directly below the first row of loops you created in the previous steps. Continue adding loops across the form, twisting the end of the burlap when you reach the outermost ring each time, until the entire wreath is covered in the burlap loops.
When finished, trim any excess burlap with scissors leaving a 3-inch tail, and secure the end of the burlap to the wreath with floral wire/a twist tie. Note: If creating a wreath with different burlap colors, simply trim and secure the end of the first burlap color to the wreath form before securing the next color to the wreath and continuing the looping/twisting process.
Flip the wreath over, and secure the flower in place by twisting the wired end of the pick around one of the wire sections of the wreath form. Continue adding other floral picks in this fashion until you have achieved the desired look.
Hang this wreath on a door for a lovely statement to greet guests as they stop by to visit. Once you see how easy the process is to create burlap wreaths like this one, you might want to make one for every season!
