Burlap Heart Wreath Supplies
- 1 metal hanger
- 12″ X width of burlap (my burlap was about 50″ wide)
- glue gun
- a rotary cutter to make cutting the strips easier
- dental floss
You could use burlap ribbon instead of cutting your own strips. I have also seen heart shaped wreath form. Another option if you don’t have a wire hanger you could use heavyweight floral wire.
How to make a burlap heart wreath
Cut 3 – 4″ X about 50″ burlap strips. Sew these three pieces together, so you have one long strip. To gather the burlap, machine zig-zag stitch over dental floss. I used red cinnamon flavored floss so it wouldn’t show, even though it looks white in the picture. Pull the floss and gather the burlap.
Bend 1 wire hanger into a heart shape.
Adjust gathers to fit around the frame, cutting off any extra that isn’t needed. Hot glue to wireframe. I used clear fishing line to hang, but a pretty white bow would be nice.
If you want a no sew method, Craftaholics Anonymous gathered the burlap by threading it about every three inches or so right onto the wire Hanger.
