Lady Loly’s Budget friendly Holiday Wreath.
Getting ready for the holidays can be so much fun but, wow OUCH on the wallet! Here is a quick, easy, BEAUTIFUL and yes budget friendly Holiday wreath for less than $30.00. You can add your own touch to coordinate with your holiday decor.
- Wire Wreath Form (can be bought at any craft store for about $3.00)
- 2 Rolls Red Jute Ribbon 4” x 10 yards ($4.35 BTL)
- 1 Natural Jute Sash 7” x 108” ($8.99 BTL)
First take the Red Jute Ribbon and fold the end into a point and weave through the wire as shown below, this will secure the ribbon in place.
Now weave the ribbon over the top wire leaving a loop about 3”.Weave through the second wire, followed by third and fourth wire to create your first row. Next start on the opposite side and repeat your second row. You’ll have to push the loops together to get a full plush look.
Continue filling your rows making your way around the whole wreath, remember to push the loops close together to avoid any wires showing.
Fluff, and adjust the burlap to your liking, cut the leftover ribbing (if any) and fold into a point and tuck into the wreath.
For the bow.
Take the Burlap sash and unravel. Using the center fold into a bow tie. The Burlap is stiff and easy to form. Cut the bottom of the tie to your desired length.
Using the leftover Burlap, pull a few strands off the edge to make a short string to tie the bow to the wreath. Just tuck the string through the loop on the back side of the bow and tie to the wire wreath.
Congrats! You did it! Now add your own embellishments for the finishing touch, secure with string.Not only was this fun to make, it was easy and took about 30 mins. I was so pleased with the finished product, I had to make a second one as a gift.
You can adjust the size of loops to create different looks. I like the full fluffy look, so I bunched together as much as I could. We also carry White and Green Jute Burlap Ribbon to mix and match.
Stay away from any glues as it’ll damage the burlap. You can also use wire to hold the bow or embellishments in place.
If your wreath gets wet, lay flat and let it air dry. Once all dry fluff and rehang.
Enjoy and Happy Holidays
