We love burlap. It is great for adding texture to your décor, and it’s a fabulously inexpensive tool for fall projects. All it takes is a wire hanger, burlap and a hot glue gun to make DIY burlap wreaths for fall.
In the interest of autumn, we share with you this far-from-ho-hum DIY burlap wreath.
If you choose to tie in bits of color, you can switch out to match an occasion or the season’s décor (silver scraps at Christmas or lacey bits for a bridal shower).

- Fold burlap strips tightly like an accordion, about 3–5 folds per piece; push wire hanger through center.
- Bend wire and secure burlap strips at neck of hanging loop with a twist of the wire once it’s densley covered.
- Fluff burlap; find points at 10 o’clock and 2 o’clock along wreath and add large dollop of hot glue to keep burlap from shifting to bottom of wreath.
- Hot glue or tie extra fabric and ribbon scraps to inner sections of wreath for little pops of color.
