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!
This wreath can also be made with with different colors as well as different shapes like the heart one below!

Hello. I just watched your video! I love the burlap wreath you created. Do you think I could use 10" poly mesh? Thanks.

Hi I found this post on pinterest and decided to use the macrame hoop instead of the hanger. I was having a hard time with the burlap bunching up and the top of the wire being exposed. I was wondering if you had and suggestions as to resolve that problem?

Love the wreath thanks for sharing. to mark your 5" first measure then mark with a felt marker the 5" mark. Then as you are sewing from top to bottom etc. it will be more uniform. If your marker wears off you can just measure and add it again.
