Burlap fabric perfectly complements farmhouse home decor. Use this DIY burlap wreath tutorial to create your own burlap bubble wreath.
Despite the outside temperature being around 90 degrees, I lit my pumpkin spice candle, turned on Harry Potter, and made a fall wreath for our front door.
DIY Burlap Wreath
I bought about 2 yards of burlap at Hobby Lobby for $4 on Monday, along with a foam wreath form and a pack of sewing pins.
If you want to make a wreath like this you really need to use foam, it makes it WAY easier. Start by wrapping a few strips of burlap around the form, so there’s no white foam poking through, and pin it in place. I had already jumped into the project at this point but you get the idea.
Making the Bubbles
Now it’s time to make your “bubbles”. Start with a piece of burlap that’s around 4″x4″ (I definitely didn’t measure each square, just eyeball it).
Then, fold the square in half to make a triangle by bringing two corners together. (I used the blue pin to help show you which way I was folding and pinning.)
Next, bring the left corner of the triangle down and line it up with the bottom corner on the front side.
Now fold the right corner down and line it up on the backside. This is your “bubble.”
Pin the bubble to your wreath. It helps if you try to pin it behind the other bubble to hide your pins. I really had to do this since I used colored pins. (They were on sale ;))
And for the more visual people, here’s a flow chart of pictures:
Keep going around the circle until you have a full wreath. Don’t worry about decorating the back, unless you really want to, but the wreath will lay flatter on your door without bubbles on the back.
Then voila! Your bubble wreath is done.
I added a brown ribbon and some leaves, just to add a touch of color and hung it on our door this morning. And I’m in love! It’s so cute and fall-y!
um, sweet! i was wanting to make a burlap wreath, too, but definitely thought it involved sewing. haha. so this is good news! 🙂
I AM TOTALLY DOING THIS!
Love it – although I’m pretty biased since I love Fall and all types of door decor!! Our house has been decorated for Fall for at least two weeks now (I’m going big this year since we weren’t able to decorate last year) and I finally hung my Fall wreath this weekend. 🙂
This looks lovely, all these wreaths getting made are making me wanna try one xox
Luv it !!! :}
Very cute! I’m not really a wreath person but I actually like this one.
It looks great! I can’t believe Fall is practically here!
That came out super cute!!
I’m not ready to admit Summer is over yet. I’ll put off decorating for fall probably until mid-October, or when it gets cold enough for me to not be able to wear short sleeves in the middle of the day.
What a cute idea! I love how curly and fun it looks! Also…. what is the color of your front door. Such a pretty color.
I actually don’t know. It was that color when we moved in.
So cute. I’ve been hoping to decorate our house for fall but after meeting with our lender last night it looks like I’ll only get part of fall and then it will be onto Christmas decorating. We had originally thought we would be in our new house by early October but because we are doing a FHA loan our lender said it will probably be closer to late October if not November. BOOHOO. Hopefully it won’t get held up any more than that. I’m feeling so impatient. I just want my house. 🙂 It better not get delayed super crazy and us end up not being in there for Christmas. That would really stink.
Bummer about the delay! Buying a house takes FOREVER! Fingers crossed for before Christmas though!
Super cute!! And YAY fall 🙂
I’m making a fall burlap wreath right now at home too, and it’s really similar to yours, but with a little different twist. 🙂 Yours looks so purty and Fally! 😉
Love this wreath! I’m so happy to see fall spread through the blogsphere!
I haven’t started any yet, but this post totally makes me want to hop on it! I love your wreath…it’s gorg! 🙂
Love it! Such a cute wreath. I’m all about decorating for fall after Labor Day. I love fall and want to enjoy it as long as possible! I definitely put out some fall themed decor this week!
Super cute! I have a bunch of burlap left over from my wedding and I’m looking for something to do with it! Thanks for the inspiration!
It IS cute and fall-y! I love it against your door, too. Not sure if you painted it or not but the blue is really pretty with those fall colors and the brick. 🙂
This turned out really nice. Love the burlap. And Harry Potter.
Oh my GOSH, I love it!!! And your instructions are great. The wreath looks amazing on your door!
It’s adorable! I love your blue door too.
LOVE this! Pinning, I can see so many people doing this. Great fall project. 🙂
Thanks Karah! 🙂
Cute! I like your blue door too =) I have been trying to decide what to make for a fall wreath.
Love it! It looks awesome on your pretty blue door.
that is so cute! Good job!
Love your blue front door by the way 🙂
That’s so cute! I liked how you folded the squares, thanks for the tutorial!
Oh this is fall perfection at its finest! A truly wonderful wreath.
While we don’t have much fall here in Phoenix I would love for you to stop by to see where I did find a bit of fall.
Have a blessed day!
So cute! Thanks so much for linking up. I am obsessed with burlap this fall and was thinking about doing a burlap wreath…maybe i’ll have to do something like this! 🙂
Very pretty! I love the wreath but I think I love the color of your front door even more : ) Gorgeous combo!
