- Next, take the burlap up through each of the remaining slots and pull it out so they each have equal length coming through.
- Once you have the burlap weaved through all of the slots, push everything tight against the wall of the wreath form, turn the wreath over and twist the entire spool of ribbon a few times to secure it in place.
- Bring the burlap back down to the bottom rung and start again, weaving the burlap through each slot.
- Continue this process going around the entire wreath
It will take a few tries to get the feel for this but once you get a few rows in, it will become very easy. Also, don’t worry if the burlap twists or is not completely even, I found that it actually looks better when it’s not perfect.
If you run out of burlap along the way, simply hot glue a new ribbon on to the edge of the old one. Continue around the entire wreath until you have a full and beautiful burlap wreath.
Finishing the wreath:
To end the wreath, I just looped the ribbon around and hot glued it in place. You can also add a loop of burlap on the back for easy hanging.
To add accents to your wreath, simply pick out some seasonal flowers and hot glue them down to your wreath. I added some fall sunflowers to the sides of my wreath to add some interest to the rest. You could also use floral wire and tie some flowers on if you would prefer to keep the wreath up all year and update it seasonally.
