This Burlap wreath has gone viral many times over the last 5 years because it’s easy and so versatile. It can be used for all holidays and seasons with a switch of embellishments.
The first post on this wreath was just a written tutorial you can see here. The Easiest Burlap Wreath Ever, but I received so many questions I created a few videos to show how easy it is.

One of the most frequently asked questions I always get about this wreath is how much ribbon did you use and what size? It depends on your hanger or wire that you are using for the ribbon but a regular sized hanger you will need about 10yards but if you want it a little more fuller and tighter I would use around 15 yards. I used 5″ wide ribbon. This is the ribbon I used.
It’s so simple and you only need a few supplies: (affiliate links, see full disclosure)
- Metal Wreath Hoop – If you don’t want to use a hanger I have used these and just cut them with tin snips or metal cutters in one spot (then taped back together once the wreath was made.
- burlap ribbon (I used just under a 10 yard roll/ 5 inch wide)
- wire hanger – you can usually find them at thrift stores, dry cleaners, re-stores etc.
- Embellishments you might want to add.
Still have questions or would like to see different alternatives to this wreath like having two colors, making it bigger or not using a wire hanger? I showed them all to you on a Facebook Live you can watch below!
