This easy DIY All American Burlap Wreath was so much fun to make. My cousin is getting married on Labor Day weekend and they have it as an American themed wedding. She recently had her bridal shower over the Memorial Day weekend. When I received the invite and knew that they were having this theme, I was beyond excited to make her a wreath for her new home with her future to be husband. I love to make personal, hand made gifts for my family and friends. I adore the loving touch that goes into the gift.
DIY All American Burlap Wreath
Supplies needed: Wreath wire frame (medium size is what I used), 3 bundles of red burlap, burlap bow, assortment of red, white and blue flowers, white letter (I used the initial of last name to be), floral wire and a hot glue gun.
Step 1: Hold the wire frame in one hand, securing the end of the burlap ribbon with that same hand. With your other hand, begin pushing loops of burlap through the back of the frame, alternating sections and pushing them together as you go. Use floral wire to secure burlap to wire frame.
Step 2: Continue pushing loops through the frame all the way around. This takes about 10-20 minutes.
Step 3: Once the frame is full, fluff & even out the loops.
Step 4: Use floral wire to secure flowers to wreath. Next add the burlap bow underneath the flowers using floral wire. (See picture for placement)
Step 5: Heat your hot glue gun. Once ready place glue on the back of your letter and position on the wreath. Gently push down to adhere. Let the wreath lay down for 20 minutes to let the glue dry and make sure it is secure.
