How to Make a Burlap Bow Wreath

Supplies Needed

  • Burlap fabric
  • Grapevine wreath
  • Accessories

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! 😉

  1. I got my house semi-ready for Fall, too. I pulled out my bag of pine cones, my Fall tablecloth and my two wire urns. I filled the urns with my gold pine cones and placed them on my dining room sideboard, then put the Fall tablecloth on. I pulled out my huge white turkey platter and propped in on an easel between the urns on the sideboard. Voila! Dining room set for Fall! Now if the rest of the house was that easy…

  2. I’m anxiously awaiting fall! Especially since we have a leftover straw bale from our grass seeding that we’ve decided to use for our front steps as fall decor. It’s suppose to be 95 on Wednesday though, so I’m going to wait until the weekend when it’s only suppose to be in the 70’s! Yay, cooler weather!

    BTW, the wreath is cute! Love the bow and the paris touch.
