I loveee Christmas! The Christmas music, Christmas decorations, Christmas shopping, Christmas movies, everything! I literally can’t stop buying Christmas decorations. As soon as the Christmas decorations hit the Walmart shelves, I was stocking up!
Finding a pretty, affordable wreath is hard! The nice ones can get pretty expensive and a cute, affordable one is hard to come by. I prefer to make my own. The one I made this year cost me about $15 to make! I got all of the supplies at Walmart, so they’re easily accessible. This burlap wreath makes a great Christmas gift as well since they’re easily customizable! (I made my boyfriend a burlap wreath with his favorite sports teams that turned out really well. I’ve pictured it at the very bottom of this post.)

What You’ll Need to Make A Burlap Wreath
- Wire Wreath
- Burlap (I only used 1 roll from Walmart. Walmart has pretty large rolls.)
- Wide Colored Ribbon
- Large Bow
- Mini battery powered lights
- Glue Gun
Use the burlap to make a loop around the outer rim of the wire wreath. My loop is about 2 inches. Hot glue the edge of the burlap to secure. Make sure you don’t glue the loop to the wire, just around it.
Create a loose loop with the burlap through the middle and inner rim of the wire wreath. I don’t loop around the wire rims. Basically just stuff a loop through the gaps in the wire.
After you create a loop through the last gap, twist the burlap a few times and start at the outer rim again and stuff loops of burlap through the rims. Repeat until you come full circle. (The scrunchy burlap comes from sliding the column of burlap to the end to create room for another column. I normally do 2 columns of burlap in each section of the wreath.)
Once you finish your last column, leave yourself about 2 inches and cut the excess burlap off. Fold the edge around the inner rim and hot glue the edge to the last loop to secure.
If you want to add some color, take the colored ribbon and tie it around one of the middle wires. It doesn’t matter which rim.Once you tie a knot, create a loop horizontally over 1 column of burlap. Stuff a small loop through the middle gap in the wire wreath and repeat.
Once you make a full circle, tie a knot with the ribbon around one of the middle wires again to secure.
You can skip this step if you want, but in order to make the ribbon more secure, I take a piece of yarn and thread it through the loops at the back of the wreath. Once you come full circle, tie the ends of the yarn together. This will just prevent the loops of ribbon from coming undone.
Hot glue the large bow to the top of the wreath. I also bought smaller bows I was going to use. They’re pictured in the picture of all of the supplies. I ended up not using them because the big bow was enough on its own. But you can glue whatever you want to the wreath to make it pretty! I added some mini lights to make it stand out in the dark as well. I loosely looped the string of lights around the wire and secured the battery pack behind the bow with some yarn. Then, I took a small piece of ribbon and tied a loop above the bow in order to hang the wreath. Then you’re done!
