Burlap Wreath FinishThis is a basic burlap wreath.  It’s a staple for almost any style decor.  It’s a neutral color that can be enhanced with ribbons and embellishments.  Once you have the basic wreath, the ribbons and embellishments can be changed to match your decor, seasons and holidays.

Attach the burlap to the wreath form.  You can use a piece of wire or you can fold over the end and use a glue gun to secure the end.

Now, this part is a little tricky.  Pull the burlap up into the first ring of the wreath form approximately 1 1/2 inch above the form to make a loop.  Pull the burlap into the second ring, then the third so you have burlap 3 loops.

Now, you need to push the three burlap loops to the end of the wreath.  Turn the wreath to the back and twist the burlap so it stays in place.  Repeat the process of making three loops, twisting the burlap,  then pushing them to the end.  Fill the entire wreath form in the same manner until it is completely full with burlap loops.  


When the entire wreath is full, secure the end around one of the metal rings from the wreath and secure the end with a piece of wire or with a hot glue gun.
