Burlap Christmas Wreath
- 14-inch Wire Wreath Frame
- Burlap Ribbon – Green 1 roll and Red 1 roll (Or if you prefer Natural Color Burlap Ribbon)
Note: When picking out the ribbon; The wider the roll (4 inches-6 inches wide ribbon) the bigger the loop. The smaller the width of the roll (2.5 inches-3.5 inches) the tighter the loop. The overlock stitching will make it looked finished whereas unfinished edges on the burlap ribbon will fray and look more rustic.
- Faux Poinsettia floral picks with Pine Cones
- 2 different Wired Ribbons for making ribbon tails and bows for the wreath. But, not for looping. Or grab a Christmas wired ribbon set for all your wreaths and Christmas decorating projects!
- Santa Ornament (or another focal ornament like this two-pack Santa and Snowman (I picked up the Santa face on the sleigh at the Dollar Store) But, I listed a few options or you can shop your local hobby store or Target’s Christmas Dollar Spot.
Tools You Will Need
- Hot Glue Gun and Glue Sticks
- Pipe cleaner or Floral Wire for connecting burlap together at ends.
- Craft Scissors
- Optional Floral Wire Cutters Set or Wire Cutters.

How To Make A Burlap Christmas Wreath
- Get out all your supplies. Set your frame on a work table or covered table for working on.
- You can make a wired loop and secure it to the top/back for hanging the wreath or do that at the end on the back of your wire wreath.
- Begin with one colored burlap and begin looping fabric in and out of the wired frame as demonstrated in this videos (HOW TO MAKE A TWO COLORED DIY BURLAP WREATH) or use this technique but you will need to also get extra burlap and twist ties. (DIY Burlap Wreath) I used the first technique.
- After you finish making your wreath, secure the ends, and fluff your fabric loops. This makes the “bubble design” and your wreath look fluffy.
- Then you are ready to add your decorations and ribbons to the top and into the burlap.
- Decide where you would like your decorations and begin securing them carefully with your hot glue gun. (Use tweezers or Finger Protectors like this)
- Cut your ribbons with dovetail ends, make bows if you like, and glue them onto the burlap wreath!
- When you are happy with the decorations stop, step back, and fill any holes.
Now your wreath is ready to hang! Pick a spot in your home or entryway to hang it. Stay tuned I have another holiday wreath coming up soon!
Store your wreath for next year by using a Christmas Wreath Storage Bag. They come in different sizes, prices, and are worth owning.
