How to Make a Primitive Inspired Burlap Wreath
The muted colors and rough but simple look of this burlap wreath make it the perfect Americana accessory to match the primitive decor in your home. Once you finish your burlap wreath base, customize it by adding different colored ribbon, star garland and a tin star center that matches your decor.
Weave the burlap
Weave the beginning of the burlap through the wires of the wreath, securing it to start the wreath using a chenille stem.
Pull a loop
Pull a loop of burlap through the slats in the wreath.
Fluff the burlap
Fluff out the burlap to the size you want the loop to be, generally 2"-3" high.
Pull through the next slat over
Pull the next loop through the next slat forward. When the row of slats is complete, twist the burlap and move to the side to make the next row. Continue weaving back and forth until the wire frame is hidden.
Slide & adjust
Slide and adjust the loops to make the wreath look even and full.
Cut pieces of ribbon between 8"-10" long. Slide the burlap aside and tie the ribbon to the wire wreath to secure it. Pull the tails of the ribbon up so they can be seen inside of the burlap.
Add garland & a bow
Hot glue star garland to the top of the wreath. Create a bow using burlap and ribbon and glue the bow on top of the garland.
Hot glue the wooden word embellishments as desired on the wreath. Hot glue the tin star to the center of the wreath.
