You may remember when we first posted our DIY Burlap Wreath project in September, or perhaps in October when we updated the DIY wreath for Halloween. Or maybe at Christmastime when we outfitted the wreath with colorful Christmas ornaments?

Our DIY Burlap Wreath has become one of our most popular DIY Décor posts to date, so we are excited to bring you another version today — spiffed up for spring!

 

Supplies for crafting a DIY burlap wreath for spring

 

 

In addition to the original DIY Burlap Wreath, you’ll need the following supplies:

 

To start, cut three large sections from your canvas drop cloth. About 2 x 2 feet sections should suffice. (We are going to dye these pieces of fabric, so the size doesn’t have to be precise.)

Once you have these sections cut, we are going to dye the pieces of drop cloth with fabric dye. Choose whichever colors you like, but know that the darker dyes will leave you with a more saturated color. The yellow, for example, doesn’t leave a very strong pigment. Follow the instructions on the box of dye, either dying the fabric in the washing machine or in a large bucket.

Once the fabric is dyed and completely dry, we are going to begin cutting the drop cloth into long, narrow strips.

I cut 2-inch tabs in the fabric, then ripped the cloth to make the strips. The cloth will rip in a straight line.

Once you have between five and 10 strips in each color, we can begin making our rosettes!

Take the end of one strip and fold it in half. Then place a bead of hot glue in the middle of the fold, and seal.

Next, you’re going to start rolling the end of the strip on itself, gluing every few rolls.

Once you have a tight rosette center, begin twisting the other end of the strip a few times before each new roll, giving the “petals” of the rosette more volume.

Continue to twist, roll, and glue the fabric until your rosette begins to grow in size.

You’ll want to glue the fabric every inch or so to keep the rosette tight.

Once your rosette is the size you’d like or you’ve reached the end of your strip, glue the end tightly to the rest of the rosette.

Once you have about a dozen or so rosettes, you can begin grouping them together. I like grouping three rosettes, one in each color. Glue the rosettes together with a couple beads of hot glue.

Now, attach the groupings to your burlap wreath with a large, dime-sized patch of hot glue.

Add a colorful bow, and your wreath is complete!
