Burlap Christmas Wreath

Burlap Christmas Wreath

Looking for an easy Christmas wreath to make this year? Well, here is a great one for you! You can make this Christmas wreath in under one hour and is great for all crafting skill levels. Plus it costs only a few dollars per wreath to make! A perfect Christmas craft idea.

 For this year’s Christmas wreath, I made a green burlap “Holly Berry” wreath….at least that’s what it looks like! {haha} But isn’t it so pretty? {yes, i couldn’t help myself. i had to make *yet another* burlap wreath.} Colored burlap is just too fun to play with! The texture is awesome. Although the mess burlap creates…. is not so awesome. oh well. {here are tips and tricks on how to cut burlap and how to reduce the messiness. Its a great post with lots of helpful tips! I would highly recommend reading it if you plan to make this wreath}
 This wreath is similar to my Valentine’s Day wreath {you can find it here: Valentine’s Day Burlap wreath with Turotial}. I did a couple things differently though; I used a wire hanger and increased the burlap to 1.25 yards. I also cut each 3″ strip {using this Burlap Cutting Technique} to make this wreath.This wreath was so easy to make and looks stunning on a red front door! I get lots of compliments on it.
 The red burlap flowers remind me of holly berries on my Christmas wreath. {click her for the Burlap flower tutorial} I made them a little bigger so the proportion was better for the wreath.
Want to see last year’s Christmas wreath? I’m a bit torn on which one to hang this year. I love them both! which one do you like better?
happy crafting,

    Okay I just barely made your christmas wreath from last year and now you have me torn wanting to make this one as well!!

    Also, I'm pretty dumb when it comes to hanging wreaths. How are you hanging the wreath without seeing a wreath hanger or ribbon?

    I say leave this one up until Christmas and then put last year's up until Valentine's Day! They are both adorable!

    k, first a quick question: Is the wreath green or grey? My monitor is showing grey, but all the comments say green!?!
    Anyways, I like this year's wreath for sure! I need to get some burlap!

    Super cute! I just found your blog a few months ago and have been so inspired! I am having a girls' craft night tonight and am working on your wreath from last year. Question…how do you get the burlap so bunchy? I've just started on mine but it looks like it's not going to be as full as yours. :(

    Thanks & Happy Thanksgiving!

    Very cute!!!

    I just made some burlap stockings and I love them… who knew burlap could be so pretty?

  26. 27

    Hang one on the front door and the other on the back door! Who says only the front needs decorations?
    I'm with missbossypants, my monitor shows a grey/blue wreath with chartuse flowers. Either colour shows nice and burlap is so "now' isn't it?

    love the wreath! I also am wondering how you made the flowers.. demo please!!!!

  28. 29

    Love this!! What a cool idea!!

    You could keep this up all year!

    Don't know what you finally decided, but I love your new wreath. Those red flowers really pop – gorgeous!

  31. 33

    Just found your blog–loving it! I made one of these in fall colors and mine is not as full as yours. I used the right amt of burlap, etc. Maybe my wire hanger was larger in circumference?

    I made a red version last year, but I’m struggling with keeping the burlap from sliding down on the hanger. Did you have this problem? Is there something I can do to keep it from sliding down towards the bottom?

    I love the green so much I may start over this year and do it in green!

    This might be a stupid question, but did you dye your burlap? I love the way it looks and am thinking of doing a gray one with a pink/red flower for Valentines Day.

    1. 35.1

      Hi Courtney,
      No, I did not dye burlap. You can get colored burlap from Joann’s {online and in store}. But you can also paint your burlap to get different colors.
      hope that helps!
      happy crafting,

    I would like to do the burlap Christmas wreath for our Super Saturday. I was wondering if you could provide the list of materials and instructions and if possible the cost of making it. I tried to look through your links and they would not come up. They said not found. Thank you. It is a beautiful wreath. Laura
