6 Easy Steps to Make a Coffee Bean Sack Wreath

4 Materials
4 Hours

I love coffee bean sacks. I have been collecting them for years. Coffee bean sacks are made from heavy duty burlap. There are so many things you can do with them. So I thought it be nice to make a fall wreath with strips of coffee beans sacks.

Step 1: Cover the foam wreath

The first thing you need to do is cut the burlap in wide strips to cover the foam wreath. Apply glue on wide strips. If you don't have coffee beans sacks you can use wide burlap ribbon. Wrap it over and over the foam wreath until its completely covered.

Step 2: Cutting up the strips

You will need to cut a whole bunch of 6 inches strips to make circular rings. I estimated 54 strips for a medium wreath. These strips will be glued all over the wreath.

Step 3: Glueing the circular loops

Create a loop from the strips. Glue each loop on the wreath. Keep the loops close to each other.

Step 4: Adding larger loops

Once you have filled the wreath halfway with burlap loops. Start adding larger ones all over to give the wreath dimension.

Step 5: Adding a big bow

Once the wreath is done its time to add a big bow. I choose a black and white wide ribbon. Take the ribbon and cut about 54 inches. Fold it over and over about 7 layers. Take a piece of wire and tie the layers of ribbon in the middle and then open up the bow. It should be round. With the same wire you tied the bow, tie the wire around a loop on the wreath.

Step 6: Hanging the wreath on the door.

You can attach a piece of wire and hang it over the top of the wreath. The wire won't show since the loop will hide it.

    Omg how cute. You can add pumpkins and leaves to for autumn and then switch those out for Xmas ball or bows or snow men for winter. So many thing can be done with burlap. Very cute and versatile indeed. Love it. Thank you for sharing.
