How to Make a Burlap Christmas Wreath
Dress up a basic pine wreath with burlap, ribbon, berries and birds to make a rustic Burlap Christmas Wreath to hang up in your home! You can even personalize your wreath with patterned burlap, a unique bow or different colored berries - it's all up to you.
Fluff open the wreath, creating an outer row of pine and an inner row of pine.
Create a burlap loop
Using approximately 6" of burlap ribbon, pull up a loop from the back to the front, working in the area between the inner and outer pine.
Continue creating burlap loops
Continue pulling loops around the wreath using this same technique. Do not cut the burlap to make the loops.
Glue pep berries
Pull the pep berry garland apart and glue individual lenths into the pine around the wreath.
Pull ribbon strands through
Cut strips of ribbon approximately 12" long and 1 1/4" wide. Pull those strips from the back to the front between the burlap loops.
Tie & attach bow
Purchase or tie a bow made from approximately 3 yds. of ribbon. Attach it to the wreath using a chenille stem.
Hot glue the cardinals in place.
