  • Only a couple supplies.
  • Costs $12 to make.

Burlap Bubble Wreath Tutorial

{Just in case you were wondering how to make this easy wreath!}

Supplies:

  • Roll of 6″ wide burlap ribbon {my roll was 30 feet long and I had about 8 feet left over}
  • 12″ wire wreath form
  • scissors
  • Silk flowers and leaves to embellish

burlap bubble wreath tutorialYou simply tie a knot around the wire wreath form with one end of the burlap. Then push the burlap thru one of the sections of the wreath form and twist so that the loop is sideways. {this helps cover the wire wreath form}. Then continue making loops but make sure to do the next “bubble” in the wire opening next to the one you just did to hold the previous loop in place. Continue around the wreath until its as full as you’d like. Then cut off the burlap {if you have extra. I did!}. Then either tie another knot to finish off the wreath, or simply tuck it into the bubbles. Then hot glue on silk flowers, leaves, ornaments, bows, etc.

Note: I tried to do all my bubbles the same size, but you can vary the size for a fun affect as well. :)

    I wonder if you can make a Halloween version with that colored webbing stuff that seems similar to the burlap you used only in colors to make a black version and put the letters BOO on it or something?? Giving me great ideas….

      I wondered the same thing. I want to make this out of deco mesh but all the sites I found for using deco mesh have you using pipe cleaners to hold in place but I want to do mine like these bubbles instead. I might just try it and see how it works out.

    I don’t know why, but burlap just fascinates me! Burlap turned into a bubble wreath, Genius! It’s so pretty!

    I live in the Hampton Roads Area, when will you be doing a class?!?!?!!? Oh, and I am in the Williamsburg area! <3

    1. 8.1

      No way!! That’s awesome! I love Williamsburg! Its good to “meet” you! haha Unfortunately the class was tonight :( But we should totally get together and craft sometime!

      1. Tonya Auberg

        Please feel free to find me on Facebook, or to email me!!!! There is another young lady here in Williamsburg who is absolutely amazing at making homemade greeting cards, hang tags, etc. We could do an awesome craft workshop for some of the Williamsburg women!!!! I myself am making the rag rug, but I also am about to start making my hanging decorative bud vases!!!! We could have a blast!! I’m actually trying to get my own small business off the ground. Not as easy as one would think.

        But PLEASE contact me!! I have a lot of downtime, would love another crafty buddy!!!!

        1. Hi Tonya!
          Sorry to be so slow to respond! Maybe we could plan a little crafty get together after Christmas? My blogging schedule is a bit insane until after the holidays, but I’d love to meet up with other crafters in the area!

    I just got home from a supply run, after reading your post through realized I likely don’t have enough to finish and I was right. Wreath is 18″ and roll was 30′, hoping a store up the road has something similar so I can finish it soon!!! Very excited about how easy this is with your detailed instructions! Thank you so much for your time and inspiration!!!

    The only burlap ribbon I could find was wired. Would that be problematic or should I find wireless ribbon?

    Probably a random question, but what church do you go to?

    Hi, Linda, I just stumbled into your eye-catching burlap Christmas wreath, and subsequently your Autumn bubble wreath. My, but you are so talented!!

    Do you use the same configuration wire wreath for both wreaths? If so, for the Christmas one do you fasten lower edge of pleats with florist wire from alternating (“zig-zagging”–sorta) points of the under side of burlap onto the frame?

    I was surprised to see you live in Hampton Roads. I live in Newport News! Phone 757 599 6338.

    HAPPY HOLIDAYS TO AND ALL YOURS,

    I am attempting to make a burlap wreath on a wire template. My probem is in getting started. I do not understand how you loop the burlap through and make it poofy. Any tips would be greatly appreciated!

    I just made my first burlap wreath! It isn’t perfect but it is a wreath covered in burlap so I say “AWESOME!” :) :) I need to hit up Michael’s tomorrow for some decorations and a glue gun (my first glue gun – I am officially a crafter now…haha). I cannot wait to see it all finished. Thank you for this great tutorial!

    I live in Sandy, Utah. I am always searching for crafty ideas because I love designing and creating. I loved sharing and receiving ideas from Relief Society homemaking and from my friends who are artistic and creative and frugal. I love your crafting ideas! Thank You for taking the time to share them and enjoying it too. I love creating in every media and in every technique. Whenever I discover a new craft idea I will definitely share it! I recently found a cute idea on pinterest on making little girl dresses and other clothes from pillow cases even doll clothes. I have not yet made any yet and I can’t remember what pinterest site I found it on. As soon as I find it again I will share it. I have 4 grandchildren and I would love to design and sew dolls for my granddaughters and clothes for them and my 2 grandsons. You have wonderful and cute ideas! And so are you.

      Thank you for the kind note, Kathy! I actually grew up a little north from you in Brigham City. We’ve lived in Virginia for the last 8 years. :)

    I am happy to hear you live in Va! I live in the Hampton Roads area and would love to know about any craft events that you do. I have had the material for quite sometime to do this burlap wreath but became frustrated when I just could not seem to “get it”. I’m a visual person and not knowing or seeing the back and how it should look confuses me. I would love it if you could provide assistance?

    I love this wreath! Thank you so much for the tutorial, I saw a wreath on a neighbor’s door but wasn’t sure how to make it. The one I saw had flowers made out of coffee filters, it was darling! :)

    If you wanted to make this wreath and change out the decorations on it for the different seasons/holidays, how would you adhere them? I want to make them changeable. Thank you

    1. 25.1

      You could probably put clips on the back of the different decorations so that all you’d have to do is unclip them for each holiday and clip on new ones.

    I am the least crafty person I know and I just made this and it looks, well, pretty great, if I do say so myself. Thanks for the idea and the terrific tutorial!

    The tutorial was great! I absolutely love my wreath. I spent less than $4.00 for the burlap (30ft) and the wire frame, now to find just the “right” decoration to finish it off. Thank you, thank you, thank you
