How to Make a Burlap Wreath with Rolled Fabric Flowers: No More Nekked Door:

Until a few months ago, door wreaths weren’t really “my thang”, unless it was a holiday. What changed? I started to see tons and tons of inspiration through out the blog world and realized with a little creativity wreaths can be cool and hip too!  Now my door feels nekked with out one. Today I am sharing a simple tutorial on this wreath I threw together at the beginning of summer. I’m thinking the colors can even transition well into Fall!


Supplies
Styrofoam Wreath Ring
Burlap
Colored or Patterned Fabric
Glue Gun
Scissors
Berry Wreath Twigs {craft stores}       

First, take your scissors and start cutting strips of burlap. Width and length can vary. 



Once all your burlap is cut start wrapping and adhering the strips to your styrofoam wreath with your glue gun. You’ll want the strips to overlap slightly in order to cover the Styrofoam underneath.


After you finish covering your whole wreath it is time for my favorite part; rolled fabric flowers. If you’ve never made these gems before you’ll want to check out my burlap wine bag tutorial where you can view a step-by-step video from Mandy over at Sugar Bee Crafts. Once your flowers are rolled take your glue gun and adhere them to your wreath. I set mine off slightly to the side for a little pizzazz {I really just wanted to use the word pizzazz, it seems a little underused doesn’t it?}


Now for the final step! Take your berry adorned wreath twig and start wrapping around the wreath. I spaced my twigs out and adhered them here and there with some hot glue.


All you have to left to do now is to hang your lovely piece of awesomeness. I promise it will make all your neighbor’s doors jealous.

{By the way, apparently, taking pictures of your front door warrants strange looks from your neighbors driving by. Taking pictures of your front door in your pjs at 3:oopm in the afternoon warrants strange looks plus perhaps a call or two to the police. I'm just saying.....}

What’s hanging around your door?

Few things: That's an awesome tutorial! Also, I have NEVER made fabric flowers. I know, I know, I can't believe it either. I don't even know how. But I have plans to learn this fall and go on a fabric flower frenzy (I love alliteration, don't you?).

I used to make wreaths when I was in FHA (which is what it was called back in the day) and I entered them in the state fair. I won a few times, it was always fun! I haven't made any wreaths in a while and right now, because of the move, my door is stark naked. BUT, you've inspired me to make a new wreath and get it outside on my new house as soon as we're in. :)

Thanks for a great post! ♥

I LOVE this wreath! I have seen a ton made with burlap and haven't liked them all that much but I absolutely love this one! Are the berries just picks? Or just one stream of berries?
