How To Make a Burlap Wreath

 
Burlap wreaths

Burlap wreaths are a perfect way to dress up your décor from fall tailgating and Halloween to Christmas and Easter. Once you make this basic burlap wreath, you’ll see how easy it can be to dress it up with a theme no matter what festivities you’re celebrating. It even makes a great DIY gift. While a variety of materials are available to use as the wreath base, we chose foam pipe insulation because it’s inexpensive and flexible, plus you can cut it to the size you prefer for your burlap wreath.

Again, the folds don’t need to be perfect, just manipulate the fabric to create fluffy waves. As you work your way around the form, secure the burlap with glue every few inches. Your wreath will start looking quite full.
 

Step 5: Decorate burlap
