Fall Burlap Wreath

As you may recall, I’ve invited Laura from Inspiration For Moms  to be a monthly contributor here at Mrs. Hines’ Class.   She is back today with a Fall wreath that I know you’re going to love.

But before we take a  look at the wreath, I just want to take a moment to tell you a little bit more about Laura.  Like me, Laura is a former Kindergarten teacher, turned stay at home mom and blogger.

She is the blogger behind this Big Boy’s Nautical Bedroom that has gone viral on Pinterest.   Laura built these bookcases.

And take a look at this Ballard’s style drying rack she built for her laundry room.   I’m so impressed with her DIY skills.

Not only does she have impressive DIY skills, but she crafts too!  So, I won’t keep you waiting any longer.

Here’s Laura with her Burlap Wreath Tutorial . 

 

It’s late August and I don’t know about you, but I am already itchin’ for fall. It’s my absolute favorite season so I am always eager to start displaying fall decorations.

I have been drooling over the burlap wreaths on Pinterest. I decided why not try to make one. Can’t be too hard, right?

After about 30 minutes this is what I created:

Burlap Wreath Tutorial
Honestly, this is one of the easiest wreaths I have ever made. I saw a tutorial for a similar looking burlap wreath that had like six steps. I tried with all my heart to follow that sweet lady’s directions, and it just wasn’t making any sense to me. I think she was making it too complicated. To make this wreath, all you need is two motions: push through and fluff. That’s it! Let me show you what I mean.
 
First, you need to gather your three supplies: a wire floral wreath, a roll of burlap (mine was 20 feet) and your pretty filler. I chose some sparkly leaves for fall. 
 
Burlap Wreath Tutorial
 
Simply take the end of the burlap and secure it around an inside wire. Then it’s time for the “push through” step. Take the burlap and push it up from the back through the wire spacing. 
 
 
Once you have some burlap through the wires, gently do the next step “fluff”. And yes, “fluff” is a very technical term! :) That’s just my way of saying shape the burlap into a little bow.

Those are all the steps, you just repeat as needed until you make your way around the wreath. It took me a total of about 20 minutes. Then I just took my leaves and poked them through the burlap. Super simple.
I think the hardest part of this wreath is going to be deciding if I like it on the front door or the wall. Decisions, decisions. :)

So what do you think? Have you ever tried to make a burlap wreath? You should, it’s almost too easy! And I must ask, door or wall? :)

 

Thank you, Laura!  I love the simplicity of this wreath.  You could even change out the embellishments seasonally.

  2. Love it, love it. love it! I can see why your impressed with her DIY skills, but you both impress me and can run circles around mine anytime! I just passed on a big burlap sale and am kicking myself for It now. You best bet, I won’t pass on another one, after reading this! I think what I liked the most about her wreath, was the fact that it could easily go through all the seasonal changes by a “tweak” here and there of what it is accented with.

  3. Love this..I think even I could manage this one lol! My fun project list is getting longer and I still have lesson plans to do :-) Thanks for sharing.

  4. I know…that’s why I love it. I could even do this! Have fun with your project list.

    Thanks for the tutorial, so simple and so pretty. I’m sure the same technique could be used for lots of other fabric options too.

  25. Thanks for the specifics…..you are the first I’ve seen to actually give ALL the details on how to create this wreath. I start in the morning.

  26. How did your wreath turn out?

  27. How big is the wire wreath form? Love the simplicity, I have been looking at tons of wreaths and tutorials and this by far makes the most sense to me!! Thanks for posting!

  28. I’m so glad this tutorial was helpful to you. I will get back with you asap with the size of the wreath form…just need to ask Laura first.

  29. Ms. Hines–just found your awesome blog–love it!
    You go girl!!!

  30. Well, thank you! Those kinds of encouraging comments are the ones that keep me going. So, I really appreciate you taking the time to let me know you found the blog. Welcome to Mrs. Hines’ Class

  31. I just love this wreath…thank you for sharing your directions! I have a question – do you have a hint or technique
    that would keep the burlap from pulling out of the frame by accident. I would be very careful but if I was giving as a gift I would want it to stay together.
    Thanks,
    Mary

  32. Thank you! This was BY FAR the easiest tutorial I’ve found on Pinterest! I had a similar experience as you; I kept trying to follow the directions on other tutorials, but they made no sense to me. I started questioning my intelligence! This was easy to follow. I love my new wreath! Thanks again!

  33. Fantastic! I’m so glad to hear the tutorial was helpful.
