Renee Lawless shares a DIY in time for the 4th of July holiday!
Metal Wreath frame
3 rolls red Burlap 6” wide, 15’ long
1 roll Blue burlap or Denium 6” x 15’
Floral wire and/or pipe cleaners
Starting with red or blue, fold in quarters the end of burlap strip. Thread wire or pipe cleaner through folded end of burlap tie to inside rim of wreath form. This serves to hold the end in place while you assemble the rest of the wreath.
Working inside out, Pull a loop of burlap strip through the inside wreath slat.
Lift the loop. Fluff it out to the size you want the wreath to be. This is generally a 2-3 inch-high loop.
Pull the next loop through the next slat over. Repeat.
Next, twist the burlap once or twice under the frame and repeat pulling burlap through slats inside to outside.
Slide/bunch the loops firmly together. This will make space on the frame for more loops.
Repeat back and forth until you complete 2/3rds of the wreath if starting with red OR 1/3rd of the wreath if you start with the blue.
You can tuck the tailpiece of burlap thru the back of the frame once you have completed the circle.
Next Thread the white ribbon thru the center of the wreath (feeling the spaces with your fingers) and tie off.
Hot glue the stars to the Blue section.
**NOTE: You will likely use 3 – 6 rolls of burlap. Attach each additional roll the same as the first. This also applies to changing burlap color.
** To Make the July 4th you can start with the blue or red.
