Today I finished making a ruffled burlap wreath that we plan to use as part of the decorations for the golf benefit party that we’re working on. It was very easy to make so I’m including the directions on how to make one. I’ve seen all sorts of burlap wreaths on Pinterest, but I haven’t seen a ruffled one like this. Now this was not an original idea of mine. One of the other gals on our planning committee, Sherry White, showed me a picture of one she had made recently, and I thought it was really pretty. So thanks, Sherry!
The creamy white burlap came from Hobby Lobby, and I used about 1 1/2 yards in making the wreath. I cut a long strip and wrapped it around the Styrofoam wreath. I stapled the ends on the back to secure it.
To make the ruffle, just pull on a string in the middle of the strip. Pull gently and push the ruffle down the string. But don’t pull the string all the way out! Leave a flat area near the end. You won’t need the ruffle there because that part will be on the back of the wreath.
Instead of putting a bow on the wreath, I decided to just wrap the ends of some spring-looking flowers with a rectangle of the yellow burlap. I tied it together with twine and wrapped the twine around the wreath to secure the flowers.
