Dress up your home with a super easy to make burlap heart wreath. Not only is the wreath simple to make it is cheap! Inexpensive burlap and a wire coat hanger are all it takes.  Once you have made a Valentine’s wreath try making this burlap wreath.  Folding the burlap makes a cool look.

I  have a double front door and need two door decorations and wanted something inexpensive.  When I saw this red burlap on sale this week at Hobby Lobby for $1.99 a yard I decided the price was right. I realized for less than two dollars I could make two wreaths.

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.

I love making my home festive for Valentine’s Day! Here are some fun Valentine’s Day Ideas. Here are some fun Valentines decorations if you are having a dinner party. I am partial to hanging hearts and party favors especially when they are easy to make.
