Make a heart shaped DIY burlap wreath for your home this Valentine’s Day. The rustic elegance of burlap with lace really shines through in this handmade wreath. It is actually really easy to make and will look great on your front door. Not a fan of the burlap color? Try the same wreath with red or pink burlap instead.
Heart DIY burlap wreath supplies:
- Darice Heart Wreath Form
- Darice Burlap and Lace Ribbon (three rolls is just right)
- Darice Floral Wire
Start by cutting a piece of floral wire and threading it through the end of your burlap ribbon as shown below. Gather and wrap it tightly around itself.
Then add the end to the wreath form by wrapping the wire around it as shown.
Then push the ribbon up from the bottom of the wreath form to create “bubbles” on the top as shown below. In this case, create two bubbles, twist the ribbon once or twice then go through that first hole again. The twisting helps to ensure that your ribbon does not pull out. The size of your bubbles will determine how much ribbon your wreath will require.
Continue pushing up bubbles from the back and working your way around the wreath form. You want to tightly pack the bubbles to get a full looking wreath.
When you get to the end of one spool of ribbon, tie the ends together by threading through a piece of floral wire and wrapping tightly. Secure these to the wreath form as well.
When you finish your wreath and it is just how you want it, cut away any excess ribbon and secure the end with another piece of floral wire.
Your DIY heart burlap wreath is now complete and ready to adorn your door for Valentine’s Day. This simple wreath will look amazing in any color but I am definitely partial to the combination of burlap and lace.
