There’s been a glittery gold and bronze wreath on our front door since before the holidays. This week, inspired by some of the wreaths friends were creating, and pinterest, we made the trip to Michaels to get the supplies for our own creation.
Burlap Spring Wreath
You’ll need: a hot glue gun, a wreath form, 5″ wide roll of burlap, flowers or bow to decorate
I found all of my supplies at Michaels, using a 50% off coupon from the app to reduce the price of the wreath circle from $20 to only $10. Then, I grabbed a $4.99 roll of Burlap that was on sale, 10′ long, and it was just enough for this 20″ wreath to do a double layer of coverage, adding some bulk.
- Use the hot glue to make two lines of glue to secure the burlap, to the back of the wreath. Using two lines of glue reduces the chance that the Burlap is going to come undone. Wrap the burlap tightly around the wreath, adjusting and tucking in any extra bulk, as you go.
- After you’ve finished wrapping the wreath in burlap, make a line of glue on the back of the wreath to secure the burlap. Let dry, and make another one, about 1/4 inch above, securing it twice. Trim the excess, to clean up the back.
- Remove the flowers from the stems. Mine were easily pulled off, but you could also use shears to cut them. For the larger turquoise flowers, the stems were still quite large, so I made small indents in the burlap wreath with the edge of scissors, making a small indent to fill with hot glue and insert the stem. I held tight, until the glue dried to make sure it was secure.
- Bunch the flowers closer together, to create a full and fun effect. I chose the smaller accent colors to place on each side, add a double layer of burlap or twine and secure with glue to create a string for the wreath hook, and you’re all finished.
Tip: to greatly reduce the cost, use a pool noodle from the dollar store, cut and taped, to create your wreath form.
Start to finish, the wreath took 20 minutes and cost under $20 for a custom, spring colored addition to our front door.
