Finally I did it…I came up with a burlap wreath tutorial that is quick and easy. This wreath is the perfect project for the beginning DIYer or the experienced crafter.

Burlap Wreath Tutorial Supplies:
- 3 rolls of burlap ribbon (I used one like this)
- Jute Twine
- Wire wreath frame
- Upholstery needle
- Accessories to decorate wreath
Burlap Wreath Tutorial Instructions:
Step 2) Starting in the corner insert needle.
Step 3) Bring needle out on the outside of the opposite side as shown in above photo.
Step 4) Continue to weave the twine through the burlap keeping the stitches equal distances apart gathering as you go.
Step 5) Repeat until all 3 rolls are laced onto your twine.
Step 6) Tie twine into a knot at the end of the burlap ribbon.
Diva Tip: Notice that the middle run of ribbon is a slightly different color. Burlap can have color variations like yarn so be sure to look for this.
Step 7) Lay the burlap around the wreath form.
Step 8) Tie the burlap onto the wire wreath frame with twine as shown so the burlap will not slide around the wreath frame.
Step 9) Arrange the burlap until the gathers are even and look the way you like.
Fall Burlap Wreath Tutorial:
Step 1) Gather fall picks and supplies to decorate the wreath.
Step 2) Start with a base that you can attach and layer the picks on.
Step 3) Attach the finished decoration to the wreath with wire so that it can easily be taken off to save when you use the wreath for another season.
Winter Burlap Wreath Tutorial:
Step 1) Gather Winter picks and accessories.
Step 2) Lay them out and layer them until you like the look.
Step 3) Attach them together with wire and then wire them to the wreath.
I added a couple DIY Burlap Poinsettias to the front my design to finish it off!
I like that this wreath can be used over and over again for different seasons. Even if you use hot glue to tack things down it will pull off and you can cover it with the next seasons grouping of accessories.
