It’s that time again! I seriously get such a kick out of making my wreaths every year. The funny thing is a few years ago I had never even thought about making one and now I try to outdo myself each year! Of course I made it out of burlap because for some reason burlap screams Fall to me. I’ve used vine wreaths in the past and styrofoam forms as well so this year I thought I would mix things up and try the wire forms. It certainly wasn’t easy getting started. I had seen a burlap wreath that I wanted to try so I went looking for a tutorial and maybe it was my ADHD kicking in but I just could not figure it out! I tried about 3 different ways to get the burlap to wrap around and “bubble” before I found a way that I liked. Hopefully you’re better at getting what I did because chances are if someone asked me to do it again I wouldn’t be able to! HA, I kid!
Here are the materials I used:
2 Burlap runners (natural and brown)
Then I was all, oh I’ll wrap it around the wire and then fluff it up…
Yeah, that didn’t work at all. So the next thing I started doing seemed to work out. I folded the burlap in half, the long way, and squeezed it through the small opening of the top of the wire form. Then I wrapped a wire to hold it into place and continued going through the opening all around. Hopefully the pictures will help you make sense of that!
Once I finished the natural color all around I did the same thing with the brown burlap only on the bottom small opening. Then I just snipped the flowers and stuck them right in and used the floral wire to hold them into place!
