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.

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.
50% off sale items and 40% off coupons kept my cost down to approximately $45. I used the following:
- 18 inch Wire Wreath,
- 10 scans of 2 1/2″ wide burlap with lace overlay
- 2 1/2″ wide x 30′ mauve Wedding Ribbon (1 scan)
- 1 1/2″ wide x 4 yards Valentine heart ribbon (1 scan)
- 0.375″ x 12′ Valentine’s Day ribbon (1 scan)
- a half string of 24′ faux white pearls
- floral wire
- hot glue gun and sticks
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.
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.
Keep attaching the gathered burlap to the frame until it is completely covered.
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.
Next, I attached one end of the mauve wedding ribbon to the frame using the same process as for the burlap.
Once the end of the ribbon was secure, I began to weave the ribbon in and out of the burlap.
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.
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.
To turn this wreath into a DIY Burlap and Lace Wreath for Valentine’s Day I added loops of cute ribbons.
I carefully and strategically added the ribbon to the frame, (just like I did the burlap.)
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.
Thanks for stopping by and Happy Valentine’s Day!
