DIY Burlap Bubble Wreath



Happy Thursday, ya'll!  I wanted to share a fun and beautiful project that I recently completed.  If you know me, you know that I love wreaths.  I love having an excuse to make a new one.  Any holiday is acceptable and fair game.  The best for me, is making one for someone that I love.  This Bubble Burlap wreath is perfect for spring and warmer weather.  I love how versatile burlap is and I have used it for many things.  


Materials Needed:


  • 1 14" Straw Wrapped Wreath
  • 3 Yards of Burlap
  • 1 Bag of Floral Pins
  • 1 Roll of 4" Zebra Burlap Wire-Edged Ribbon
  • 1 Roll of 5 1/2" Sage colored burlap



Step 1:

Cut Burlap into 5x5" squares.



Step 2:

Once cut, fold each square in half to make a triangle.


Step 3:

Fold the triangle in half, and bring the left corner to the front.



Step 4:

Fold the right corner to the back of the triangle.



Step 5:

Take the floral pin and insert it through the corners that you just brought together at the bottom of the triangle.



Step 6:

Press the pin firmly into the Straw Wrapped wreath.  


Step 7:

Continue Steps 1-6 until the entire wreath is covered.  Fill in with burlap squares until your desired look is achieved.  




Step 8:

Add the colored burlap and pin as you go around the wreath.  Cover the colored burlap with the Zebra ribbon and pin in the same places until you've gone all the way around the wreath. Finish up by tying a large bow and securing it at the bottom of the wreath with floral pins.  Add an option letter to the wreath for embellishment.



This was such a fun project and I can't wait to surprise my friend with this at her baby shower next month!

I hope you all have a great day!

I've been making burlap wreaths lately, but just wrapping them in it. This is so much cooler!
