How To Make A St. Patrick’s Day Burlap Wreath


Welcome back to another fun St. Patrick’s Day decor idea.  Today I am going to show you my fancy St. Patrick’s Day burlap wreath I made.  I think it is the perfect addition to my green decor.

I have been wanting to make an awesome burlap wreath since my friend Pat showed my hers over a year ago.  It was so nice.  She told me it was easy but it looked hard and I put off learning until now but I really wanted one to add to my St. Patrick’s Day decor.

 

I have always wanted to try to make a burlap wreath. I needed something for St. Patrick's Day so I did it! I couldn't be happier with the way it turned out. What a great DIY decor project.

So as it turns out…it wasn’t so hard after all.  I had a few awkward moments but I figured it out and got it done.

The Process

I found a great video to link to you for.  This is what I used to learn and she explains and shows the process to nicely.

 

 

Adding A Second Color Of Ribbon

I wanted to add some green ribbon in my wreath so I alternated the colors.  First, I attached both the burlap and the green sheer ribbon at the beginning just as she does in the video.

Starting with the burlap I made the first loop, then I created the middle, or second loop, with the green ribbon, then back to the burlap for the third loop.  After the “twist” I used the green ribbon for the first and third loops and the burlap was in the middle and I kept going with this alternating pattern all the way to the end.

If you run out of ribbon just secure the end to the frame with wire and continue where you left off with a new spool.  It isn’t hard but I have to say it took me more than 10 minutes.  Once you get the hang of it, it starts to move a little faster.

Adding Some St. Pats Details

Hobby Lobby has a few fun St. Patrick’s Day decor.  I picked up two wooden, polka dot shamrocks and a wooden “Luck” sign.  They were added in the middle of the wreath.  The two shamrocks have long metal sticks so they are attached to the wire frame with zip ties and I used my handy glue dots to secure the Luck sign.  I stuck them to the two shamrocks and so far it is holding quite nicely.

At the very end I tied a piece of twine to the top as a hanger.

I think it turned out pretty good for my first go!  What do you think?

I like to add a wreath to this display no matter what the holiday or season because it hides the wires hanging the mirror.  This one does it’s job!  You can also see my St. Patrick’s Day Mason Jars in this picture.  Also, so stop back Tuesday to find out about the canvas wall art and the pillow.  These were both fun projects.

Here are some more photos of the wreath.
