DIY Burlap and Lace Wreath

I have always loved hanging a pretty wreath as part of any seasonal decor. Personally, I have made numerous wreaths in my lifetime and I’d have to say that my favorite wreaths are the ones that I have made from burlap. That’s why I decided to make a DIY Burlap and Lace Wreath for Valentine’s Day.

DIY Burlap and Lace Wreath

If you have been following our blog, you will remember that I made a DIY Fall Burlap Wreath and a DIY Patriot Burlap Wreath for our home last year. Out of all the wreaths, these burlap wreaths have been my favorites, until now.

Recently, this romantic DIY Burlap and Lace wreath was added to my list of favorites. It really is easy to make a burlap and lace wreath. It simply takes a few materials and some time.

Burlap Wreath 1

50% off sale items and 40% off coupons kept my cost down to approximately $45. I used the following:

Burlap Wreath 2

Make a loop with the burlap, gather it at the bottom and twist a small piece of wire around the bottom to secure it.

Start by making a loop in the burlap by folding over the end, gathering it at the bottom and wrapping/twisting a piece of wire around it.  Each loop is made with approximately 6″ of burlap. 

Burlap Wreath 3

Wrap each end of the wire around the frame and twist the ends together to secure the burlap loop to the frame.

Now take the ends of the wire and wrap/twist them around the floral wire frame. I start on one side of the frame and work the loops of burlap back and forth across the frame. This helps the wreath to look nice and full.

Almost finished attaching the burlap ribbon to the frame. I am working back and forth across the frame with the burlap loops to give the wreath a “full” appearance.

 Keep attaching the gathered burlap to the frame until it is completely covered.

The entire framework is now covered with the loops of burlap.

I made a wire loop so that I could easily hang the wreath from a hook on the wall or from a wreath hanger on a door.

A wire hook made by wrapping several loops of wire together and twisting it around the frame.

 Next, I attached one end of the mauve wedding ribbon to the frame using the same process as for the burlap.

I attached one end of the mauve wedding ribbon to the frame.

  Once the end of the ribbon was secure, I began to weave the ribbon in and out of the burlap.

Weaving the ribbon in-between the burlap loops.

This process took a little time to do because I did not want to cut the ribbon but simply “feed” it through the burlap loops and frame.

This is what the back of the wreath looks after adding the mauve wedding ribbon.

I flipped the wreath over so that you could see the back of the wreath. This is what the back looks like after I wove the mauve wedding ribbon throughout the wreath.

After the mauve ribbon was fed through I did the exact same process with the string of faux pearls. I tried to strategically place large loops of pearls throughout the wreath. I was careful not to pull the pearls to taunt because I wanted them to drape across the entire wreath.

The addition of the mauve ribbon and the faux pearls helps to add a romantic touch to the wreath.

 To turn this wreath into a DIY Burlap and Lace Wreath for Valentine’s Day I added loops of cute ribbons.  

Burlap Wreath 21

Valentine’s Day ribbon looped and strategically wired them throughout the wreath.

 I carefully and strategically added the ribbon to the frame, (just like I did the burlap.) 

Burlap Wreath 23

Stripes of thin Valentine’s Day ribbon hot glued to a few burlap loops throughout the wreath.

For the final touch, I cut strips of the thin Valentine’s Day ribbon and hot glued them to a few loops of the burlap.

DIY Burlap and Lace WreathI just love the romantic flair of this DIY Burlap and Lace Wreath. 

DIY Burlap and Lace WreathSince this wreath is made from burlap and ribbon, I would not recommend displaying it outside. For lighting purposes only, I did hang the wreath outside for these photos.
