How to make a wreath STEP BY STEP
First, cut about a 3 to a 4-inch long strip of burlap to wrap around the wreath. Fasten off with a greening pin.
Cut 4-inch squares of burlap.
Fold the four-inch square in half making a triangle.
Bring the edges of the triangle to the center point.
Use a greening pin to attach to the wreath. A dab of hot glue can help secure the pins. I did not need to do this since my pins felt secure in the wreath.
I pinned along the outside edge all the way around, then the inside and finished off with a row on the front.
Once finished attach a bow and you have a festive decoration. You can see how to tie a bow on this bow tying tutorial. I used the same process that I do for making a bow for a gift package. Hang the wreath on your front door to welcome guests.
A wreath can dress up your home (especially your front door). Here are some more wreath ideas? I think these are some great ones.
