    There are so many options out there. I use rolls of burlap about 6-8 inches and use an open wire wreath circle. You can get them pretty cheaply. I like my wreaths to be full and loopy. Check out online diy videos they will give you great ideas!

    Once you have a base to use for your wreath, all you need to do is decide if you wanted to be tight and firm or if you want it to be loopy and frilly. If you want it to be tightly wrapped around the wreath base, simply use pins or glue and begin by attaching your first piece of Burlap to the underside of the wreath. Then continue with one long piece of burlap until the entire wreatj is covered tightly with the burlap and then take the end of your burlap and tack it onto the underside of the wreath, with a pin or glue. I prefer to use glue. If you want it to be kind of frillly and loopy, then you can continue on once you have wrapped your entire wreath tightly by adding different lengths of folded over burlap that can also be glued or pinned down as needed. Probably the best thing for you to do here is not to worry so much about what other people think and just do what you think looks good! It is far easier than you might, just go with what looksright to regard to looping and grouping, the burlap together. Just make sure to adhere pieces together with pins or glue,as needed,so nothing will unravel later on. I seen some people who will attach artificial flowers or dried folliage on their wreaths, for additional embellishments. The choice is yours!
