Burlap is huge in home decor right now – we see it on banners, on pillows, as window coverings and in wedding decor. So this burlap diy wreath makes a great addition to your summer decor – hang it inside or out, on your front door or back gate like we did. They can be expensive to buy, so we made our own and you can too as it’s super easy once you know how. Here’s the DIY wreath instructions:

Follow Steps 1 – 4 to secure the ribbon. Getting started is probably the hardest part until you realize the simplicity of just looping the burlap.
Step 5 – the twist
Once you’ve made those first three loops, scrunch them together in one hand. Turn over the wreath so you are looking at the back. TWIST the ribbon three or four times with your other hand. Then start looping the ribbon again beginning at the inner edge.
Continue in this manner around the wreath. Then secure with another piece of wire (as in Step 1-4).
I’m amazed at how easy and quick this is!! By scrunching each set of loops as you twist, the ribbon makes these gorgeous intertwined loops. It’s full and textured, just like the store bought ones.
Now it’s time to decorate your new wreath!
Because this wreath was meant for late summer, I chose to decorate mine with things that are commonly seen during August around here – sunflowers from the garden, bullrushes growing in ditches along the highway and wheat in the fields.
In less than 30 minutes, you can make your own burlap wreath with these DIY wreath instructions. Where would you hang yours?
