I am feeling the need for spring y’all. I thought I would add a touch of spring to my front door with this spring burlap wreath. At least my door will be nice and warm looking! Grab the supplies below and follow the instructions to make your own burlap wreath. This one was originally posted over at Crafts Unleashed however I am posting it here in case y’all missed it.
- 12in Wire Wreath Form
- Burlap Ribbon Lime (1 1/2 spools required)
- Chicken Wire
- Mossy Twig Vine
- Vine Wrapped Craft Wire
- Baby Breath
- Hydrangea Flower Pick
- Floral wire
- Hot Glue
Start with the chicken wire and wire wreath form. Use metal cutters to cut the chicken wire to fit inside the wreath form. Attach the chicken wire to the wreath form with lengths of floral wire as shown. It is important to leave the long ends free as we will use them in a minute. Snip off 6 – 8 inch lengths of floral wire and tie them to the wreath form in various locations in the middle and outside edge as shown. Make sure they are in a location where they will not slide along the form (the place where the vertical and horizontal pieces cross are perfect).
Start with the burlap ribbon in one area and tie on as shown below.
Then make a “bubble” with the ribbon and tie the wire around the ribbon as shown below.
Continue in this same manner all the way around the wreath. Cross the ribbon, make large and small bubbles, or anything else that suits you. Just play with the ribbon and the wreath until you love it. You can add more floral wire if needed as well. The image below is after one spool of ribbon. I used an additional 1/2 spool before calling this one done. Before finishing, try to cover up any places where your wire shows with ribbon bubbles as well.
Cut little pieces of the flowers and stick them inside the wreath as shown. You can use just a dot of hot glue to secure. Use these flowers to hide anywhere you can see floral wire as well.
Lets make a bird’s nest for the center of the wreath. Start with the mossy twig vine and hot glue. Twist it up into a nest like shape using hot glue to secure it in place as you twist. Hold it until the hot glue sets.
Secure to the center of your wreath with additional hot glue. Fill the nest with flowers and secure those with hot glue as well.
Use the wired sisal vine to hang your creation at the top. You are ready to welcome spring with a spring burlap wreath that your guests will love.
This colorful spring burlap wreath is the perfect way to welcome the season. This one would transition well into summer as well if you hate making and changing your wreath with the seasons. You can also follow the instructions above with any color burlap ribbon to make a wide variety of burlap wreaths for any season of the year.
