25 Days of Christmas: Burlap Wreath

Welcome back! Thanks for joining me on day 2 of my 25 Days of Christmas mini series dedicated to everything Christmas. Yesterday I talked about our Elf(ves) On The Shelf and shared our schedule of all the mischief #sammyandsophiameyer plan to get into.

It’s been quite chaotic around here trying to catch up so I am grateful for the reason to sit down for a few minutes and share my next project, a burlap wreath tutorial. I’ve never made a wreath before so this was a fun little project that I think ended up turning out great. It was also fairly inexpensive and easy to do, about one hour total.

Materials:
FloraCraft Wire Wreath
Cloth Wire

Burlap – I used 4″ by 7 yards
Yarn – Any kind and color is fine
Sewing needle – One with a wider hole makes threading it easier
Hot glue

Steps

My mom and I did some brainstorming and decided it would be easier to thread the burlap with yarn using a needle and then scrunch it together. I quickly realized it was easier and quicker to fold the burlap a few times and push the needle through. This limited the number of times I needed to pull the yarn through which saved a lot of time. I also had to go back and redo about half of it because I got too lax with the spacing and the scrunch wasn’t tight enough. For a larger wreath you can space the threading out more. There is no right or wrong, just your preference.

Steps 2

Once it was scrunched to fit the FloraCraft Wire Wreath I turned it over and used Cloth Wire to secure the burlap to the wreath. I made sure to secure the burlap well on the inside and outside rim of the wreath. Then using hot glue I secured some gold embellishments I found at Canadian Tire.

I am so excited with the final project and how it looks on the wall in the kids play room.

Caity’s 14 Month Update

This last moth has been a doozy! We tried “sleep training” again. Without many tears Caity started getting more comfortable in her crib at night. On average she has been sleeping with minimal wake ups in her crib from 7pm – 12am. At which points […]
