Learn how to make a burlap bow to add to a wreath or other home decor. Burlap bows add the perfect rustic flair to any wreath or decoration.
Burlap is the perfect accessory for any farmhouse-themed home decor. I used some burlap scraps from my burlap bubble wreath to create this bow. It’s the perfect accessory for a simple grapevine wreath.
I created this wreath just before a vacation to Paris. So I added a little Paris flair. It’s just a notebook cover from the craft store!
How to Make a Burlap Bow Wreath
- Burlap fabric
- Grapevine wreath
Grapevine wreaths are beautiful on their own. But they are even more beautiful with a few simple accessories. I had a lot of leftover burlap after making my burlap bubble wreath. So I decided to make a little burlap bow to accessorize my grapevine wreath.
Since I had my Europe vacation on my mind, I couldn’t resist a little Eiffel Tower notebook at the craft store too.
The grapevine wreath and Eiffel Tower notebook were less than $5. And I already had the burlap at home. So this was a very inexpensive wreath to make.
Making the Burlap Bow
The grapevine wreath doesn’t need any prep work. So jump right in with making the bow.
I made the burlap bow by cutting out a large strip of burlap. Then crossed the strip over itself to make an X shape.
Then scrunch up the middle of your X and tie it tight with some twine or string.
To make your bow a bit prettier and look more finished wrap a small strip of burlap around the twine and hot glue it in the back.
I hot glued my bow and my little Paris notebook cover to the grapevine wreath. Then I wrapped a small piece of ribbon around the top and hung it on the front door! It’s like the house is wishing us bon voyage! 😉
