DIY Burlap Wreath | How to Make a Burlap Wreath | DIY Holiday Decors | DIY Holiday | Burlap Wreath Tutorial

I can’t wait to start sharing all my projects from Trouble’s Beachy Mermaid Party! It was such a fun party to throw, and now that it is over I am thrilled to have some great home decor left over to give my house a casual summer beach house vibe. These burlap wreaths were ridiculously easy to make and I absolutely adore them! The best part is that when summer is over I can swap out the starfish for something a little more fall-ish, with almost no effort at all.

The burlap garland made this project especially painless. At first I thought about just cutting regular burlap into strips, but this stuff is lightly wired AND the edges are finished, which makes it much easier to work with. It was about $8 for a roll at the craft store, but of course I used a coupon to get it for half off!

DIY Burlap Wreath project supplies.

Here is what you need:

1 roll of burlap garland (10 yards)
1 wire wreath frame
a starfish or other embellishment

Start by weaving the burlap around and through the wires of the metal wreath frame.

Step 1: Hold the wire frame in one hand, securing the end of the burlap ribbon with that same hand. With your other hand, begin pushing loops of burlap through the back of the frame, alternating sections and pushing them together as you go.

Wrap the burlap fabric all the way around the wreath frame.

Step 2:  Continue pushing loops through the frame all the way around. This takes about 5-10 minutes. Easy!

Fluff and even out the loops so that the wire frame is not visible from the front of the wreath.

Step 3:  Once the frame is full, fluff & even out the loops.

Secure the starfish ornament to the front of the wreath using twine.

Step 4: Use twine to secure the starfish to the wreath.

Hang your newly finished DIY burlap wreath with a wreath hanger on any door or window.

Step 5:  Hang and you’re done. Seriously. That’s it. Can you believe it? Easiest. Craft. Ever.
