DIY Burlap Wreath


Here at Apron Blog headquarters, we’ve been noticing wreaths of all shapes and sizes popping up on the internet. Of course, with our Tailgating Extravaganza going on, we thought it would be fun to do a football-themed wreath.

And, as much as we love football here at The Home Depot, we thought it might be fun to try and make a wreath that could be used not only for football season but throughout the year. So, we decided upon this super simple and inexpensive burlap wreath project, which by simply switching out some ribbon and a few trinkets, can take us from Tailgating to Halloween to Christmas.

Find the full step-by-step below!

DIY Burlap Tailgating Wreath | Supplies


For this simple and pretty burlap wreath project, you’ll need the following supplies:


DIY Burlap Tailgating Wreath | Secure pipe insulation


Begin by shaping your pipe insulation into a circle and securing with duct tape to create a wreath form.


DIY Burlap Tailgating Wreath | Cut burlap into thick strips


Next, cut several thick strips of burlap. They don’t need to be perfect or neat, as you’ll just be very informally wrapping the wreath form in these strips.

Begin wrapping the wreath form in the burlap, and secure with jute twine. This portion doesn’t need to be perfect, mostly you just want to cover the pipe insulation so that it won’t show.

Next, start creating folds with the burlap and securing to the wreath form with floral pins. The folds don’t need to be perfect, just manipulate the fabric to create fluffy waves.

Once you’ve made your way all the around the wreath form, you’re finished with the burlap. Now, you just need some festive ribbon and a few trinkets to create a theme on your burlap wreath. Change out the ribbon and trinkets based on the season, and this wreath could last you year round!
