Easy Burlap Bubble Wreath
I like to make burlap wreaths -- burlap is versatile and inexpensive. Plus, it's so easy to work with! I recently made a new burlap wreath for my home's front door in less than an hour.
All that's needed for this project are a few rolls of burlap ribbon, a pair of scissors, a glue gun and glue sticks, and a wire wreath frame.
11 Yards green burlap
11 yards white burlap
1 roll of ivory stripe faux burlap ribon
14-inch wire wreath frame
Multi-purpose glue gun
To start this wreath, simply tie on one en of burlap ribbon to the back of the wreath form. Push a section of the burlap through two horizontal sections of the form to form a bubble or loop. Twist the burlap behind the bubble on the back of the frame to secure the loop. Repeat by creating another loop in an adjacent horizontal section of the wreath.
The photo above shows how I push the burlap fabric through the wreath form to create a "bubble" or loop.
The above photo is another look at how I created the loops for the wreath. As I made loops, I pushed them close to together to create a block of bubbles in one color on the wreath. The wire wreath form I used was separated by vertical wires to form sections. When I reached a new section of the wreath, I switched to the other burlap color, e.g., from white to green. After I filled the wreath with burlap bubbles, I tied a simple bow with some striped ribbon and glued it to the wreath. If you don't have a glue gun, you could even loop the ribbon around the wreath and then tie a simple bow. Simple!
I find it amazing that a beautiful wreath can be made just by twisting some burlap ribbon!
