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

Burlap Bubble Wreath Tutorial

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


  • 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 have been wanting to make one of these for the longest time. This looks very easy, hope I can figure it out! :)

    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….

    1. 2.1

      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.

      1. A Rewis

        You can use deco mesh instead of burlap. I’ve made several using the same technique as this application. A word or two if advice, the devo mesh has a great tendency to stick to itself, so great patience is required. But I found that once I got accustomed to thus, it was as easy as using the burlap.

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

    1. 3.1

      Thank you, Glenda! I totally get the burlap attraction. The texture, the look, ah! love it! Thanks for stopping by today! :)

    2. 3.2

      If you want a good place to get a plethora of different colored burlap for decent prices, I found an Etsy Shop called HouseofBurlap. I have ordered a few items from there, the woman who owns it, Teresa, I believe…? I’m terrible at names, is super sweet to work with! She has something like over 200 different colors. Its amazing for a crafter with a burlap obsession! I was in wreath heaven!

    This is the only burlap project I’ve seen that I actually like. Very nice! It fits well with Halloween décor.

    LOVE this. So easy, even I could make it!

    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 live in Suffolk, VA. Small world!!

    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.

    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!

    Thank you! Needing wreaths for my daughter’s wedding, and these will be just perfect!
    Can’t wait to get started.

    You should make a You Tube video of this tutorial!!!
    I love the wreath, gonna try to make one for the Spring.

    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?

  26. 24

    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.

  28. 26

    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!

  29. 27

    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

    Where did you get your roll of burlap?

      Michaels or Joanns, I can’t remember.

    Hi! I just bought all of the supplies to make this wreath. I saw another website and they put pipe cleaners or wire between every section of three loops that they did. Did you do that or just use burlap? I bought the wire but it seems like it might be a hassle. Thank you!!

    1. 30.1

      Hi Nicole! No, I did not use any wire. I simply wrapped the burlap through the wire wreath holder and it stayed just fine. Let me know if you have more questions! Happy crafting! :)

  33. 31

    Thank you so very much for this tutorial. This was way easier then I was thinking and I am sure that your clear directions are the reason why. I am so pleased with the look of my first burlap wreath. Thank you!

    1. 31.1

      I’m so glad you liked my tutorial! Congrats on making your first burlap wreath! :)

    I love to make wreaths too.

  35. 33

    I don’t understand how each loop stays in place…?

    1. 33.1

      You weave it around the wire

    Terri Jo

    I am planning this as a group project and so need to estimate the cost ahead of time. Would you please tell me how long the roll of burlap ribbon should be for each wreath? (I’ve seen options for 5 yards, 10 yards and up). Thanks.

  37. 35

    I am a visual learner. Is there any chance youwould be willing to do a video tutorial. I’m not understanding if you just push up bunches of burlap through the wires or exactl how you are achieving the bubbles and get them to stay in there. Thanks for you help. It is a beautiful wreath!

  38. 36

    Just tried making the wreath…sorry to say, it was not as “easy peasy” as you said. The most difficult part was trying to get the loops even..half way through, i realized some were larger than others and I had to undo it. It takes a while to get the hang of it….and it DID NOT take 15 minutes! …more like 2 hours!
    I won’t give up though

    Steph Norton

    I just want to make sure I understand directions before I start. I noticed the wire form has three sections all the way around. Do you bring up a loop/bubble into each of the three sections of the wreath in a row, then start a new one right next to it? I pretty visual, but the still pics just weren’t quite enough. Can you clarify?

    Thanks so much! Looking forward to making this wreath, then gathering other women to make it too.

    1. 37.1

      Hi Steph! Yes, I put a loop or bubble through each of the 3 section of the wreath, working my way back and forth across the wreath form :)

    I’m generally confident when I’m creating floral arrangements & wreaths, but I haven’t made a burlap wreath yet and need help. Where can I purchase a video tutorial? I’m not able to understand how to create the wreath just from reading the text here. I think they are beautiful and there are so many different variations to choose from. TY for your help! 😀
