What’s not to love (besides the fact that it smells a little funny, I would probably make myself a scarf with it if it didn’t!)?
- Roll of burlap ribbon, 10 yards
- Wire wreath frame 18″
- Pipe cleaners or Floral wire
- Glue gun (optional)
- 2 burlap-ish poinsettia flower picks
- 2 long needle pine branch picks
First, attach the end of the burlap to one of the cross hatch bars of the wire wreath form. Basically, just fold the end of the burlap ribbon and starting at the inner rung, snake it up through the rungs and wind around the cross hatch bar. There is no right or wrong way to do this… just twist it around so that it stays. (I tried to take a picture of this but it just looked like a hot-mess of burlap.) Since the burlap is pretty sturdy it will stay put if you wrap it around
but you can add some hot glue if you want it to be more secure. Don’t worry how it looks, it will be covered up.
You should be able to fit two rows of loops between each set of the wreath frame cross hatch bars.
hot glue if you want for extra security.

Very cute! Can you tell me where you got the burlap flowers for the burlap wreath?
Kate S. says
They are from Hobby Lobby but were part of their Christmas line, maybe next year they will have something similiar. Good luck!
Beautiful wreath (and very versatile!). I can’t tell how you “hung” it on your mirror like that. Did you use fishing line to hook it over the back?!?
Kate @ Chic on a Shoestring Decorating says
I hung it with a suction cup hook…. very tricky like it’s floating! haha 🙂
