How to Make a Wreath for Shabby Chic Home Decor

6 Materials

Learn how to make a wreath that will show off your shabby chic home decor style. It looks just as good hanging on a front door as it does in a tabletop display. Follow these easy instructions with inexpensive supplies.

You also don’t need to spend a ton of money to get a shabby chic decor look. The Dollar Tree is often my go-to for DIY wreaths. I love their 10 in foam wreath form. This time a new one caught my eye- the Natural Willow wreath. This basic, and frugal base is perfect for both the shabby chic and farmhouse style trends. 

First cut two pieces of fabric and two pieces of burlap to wrap around the wreath. The burlap pieces should be wider than the fabric.

Attach the first strip of burlap by gluing together the strips on the backside. Do this again going the opposite direction, for the cross look.

Then, lay a piece of fabric over top of the burlap pieces and attach the same way. In this picture, you can see I also pinned the fabric pieces just in case the glue wasn’t set all the way.

Next, take a long piece of hemp and start wrapping in an X formation in the center of the two pieces of fabric. To really get the final look, which I think kind of looks like a cross, be sure to pull the hemp tight when you are crisscrossing. This will cinch in the burlap and fabric pieces at the center. Tie off in a knot at the back.

To finish it off,  embellish the front with a paper flower, silk flower or even lace rosette. The great thing about this wreath is that it looks just as nice as a front door wreath as it does on a wall or tabletop display. And while it really does have a timeless look that could be used all year long.
