Burlap and Tulle Wreath Tutorial

Pin It
This post is going to be short and (hopefully) sweet.  It's been a whirlwind weekend here.

Actually, whirlwind is probably a bit mild. It's been a "queue the flying monkeys" tornado, crazy-busy, weekend that included removing screens, washing windows, a round trip visit to see my son at UIUC, and a very special meeting on Sunday evening that I'll tell you more about in the coming weeks.

 In the mean time,  a few weeks ago,  when I wrote my ombre glitter pumpkin post,  I posted a photograph of a burlap and tulle Halloween wreath that I made. A couple of you asked me for a tutorial.



Well, I don't have a complete set of photos for a Halloween wreath, but I DO have some from a Christmas wreath that I made using the same process. Forgive the lighting in these photos, but here goes:

Materials:

  • Styrofoam wreath form
  • Approximately 1 yard of burlap and/or tulle, cut into roughly 4x4 inch squares
  • Wood skewers
  • Elmer's Glue

Directions:

Wrap a square of burlap around a skewer.
Dip into glue and push about 1/2 inch into the wreath form.
Repeat randomly around the wreath.


 

That's it. Easy, right? I also made some adding ribbon and some using only burlap. Here's a link to my Burlap Ball Ornament Tutorial in case you missed it last year!
