I have been browsing Pinterest for wreath ideas for a while, and finally decided to make a burlap wreath. I had made some new Halloween ornaments as a scroll saw project last week, and needed something to do with them.
I was at Michael’s looking for wreath base and decided to use a wire frame base and burlap. I had no idea how much of the burlap ribbon stuff to buy, so I went one package of two different colors (natural and cream) for a total of 10 yards. After making the wreath it probably would have been better to have a little more burlap.
I used my hand width to estimate how long the loop should be and attached the burlap to the frame with wire.
Here is the wreath with one of the burlap packages tied on. You will notice that I started with the loops closer
together on the right before I realized how much burlap I would need. I started the second color of burlap going the other direction to fill in the gap.
With the two packages of burlap on the wreath it looks pretty good. It is a bit thin on the side, but from across the room it looks great! I added a bit of orange ribbon since this is a Halloween wreath.
Lastly I used wire to tie on some of my Halloween ornaments.
This wreath will be great in my classroom for Halloween. It is really light, so it can hang almost anywhere. I like the look of this, I will probably make another for Christmas.
