Ruffled Burlap & Jute Wreath {Interchangeable Embellishments}

I’m so excited to show you this wreath!  I made the wreath itself for $3. Yes, just three dollars.  I’ve been dreaming of making a burlap wreath for my spray painted front door, so I finally did it.   I also got the brilliant idea one day while in the shower {hello, don’t y’all get earth shattering ideas in the shower?} to make various embellishments for different holidays! Booyah!

Ruffled Burlap & Jute Wreath

You can make this wreath.  It’s so easy and I’m confident that you could make it under $10 at the very most.  SO frugal!

I used a wreath that I found at the ReStore for $1 {it had a $1.99 Big Lots tag on it}, 2 rolls of Jute from Dollar General, a scrap of burlap that I had on hand, upholstery thread {because it’s much stronger than standard thread} and hot glue.

I hot glued the end of jute down and started wrapping. It took a very long time to wrap the wreath. Wrap while watching a movie or some Netflix! The most frugal things aren’t always the fastest. But it was worth it…at least I think so! :)

I almost left it just wrapped in jute, but I decided it needed a ruffle. I love me some ruffles!

I had a strip of burlap from a previous project. It was 2 1/2 yards long and I cut it about 5″ wide.  Then I used upholstery thread and gathered up the fabric. To keep the upholstery thread from pulling through the open burlap, I used a bit of hot glue to keep it secured to the burlap.

I gathered the ruffle evenly and to a length that would fit the wreath’s circumference. Then I hot glued it on the back of the wreath.

I’m so happy with out my $3 wreath turned out, but it still needed some embellishments. I dug out scraps of ribbon, burlap and fabric and made these “flowers.”

In order to make the embellishments interchangeable, I hot glued velcro circles on the back of them as well as on the wreath.

I made a little St. Patrick’s Day clover hickey-do for the center of the wreath with my Silhouette machine.  Love that thing!  Do you see the velcro?

I kinda goofed when I realized that I hadn’t planned a good way to hang the wreath, but a little bit of floral wire did the trick. I wired it through the jute on the back.  It’s working really well…thankfully.

I added my scrappy, homemade embellishments and I’m in love.

Totally in love with my pretty burlap, jute wreath. The next set of embellishments will be for Spring!! Bring. it. on.

I have been self diagnosed with a burlap obsession.  Thank you for humoring me and putting up with it!

Have a mah-velous day y’all!

    Thanks for sharing. :)

  3. LOVE this idea! I’ve just recently gotten the wreath bug and have been itching for some new ideas! Thanks!

  4. Mary@lookingupforhelp.blogspot says:

    Love it!

  5. I love this project…I love how you used all the different kind of flowers…just wonderful

  6. Love this! I made a similar looking burlap wreath for Fall (http://www.getbusyliving.org/2010/10/wreathsagain.html) but I LOVE the interchangeable embellishments! Too cute! :)

  7. Adorable! If you happen to be in the neighborhood next week, you’ll see one of these beauties on my door. Thanks for the grrrrreat idea!

  8. Love it! I just told my husband over the weekend that I had to have a Silhouette Machine Thingy for this, this and this project. Now I can add another reason to the list! :)

  9. ADORABLE!!!! So cute! and I love using the velcro. I go my best thinking while in the shower, or folding laundry.

  10. Adorable! I made a yarn wreath with interchangeable emblishments the beginning of the year and I love the versatility of it! I pinned my flowers etc on, but may change to velcro!

  11. I love this! I think I may be making this soon, because I have a burlap project coming up and I know I’ll have scraps. I need a spring wreath really bad. Poor plain door. Thanks for sharing!

  12. Heather says:

    I love this! I just might have to copy it!!

  13. love it! I’ve got to pull out my dollar store wreath and get to work!

  14. Myra, wow it’s super cute! Happy birthday by the way… Im gonna hop on over and share my random act of kindness!

  15. Adorable!! Love the St. Patrick’s Day “Hickey-Do” although I have always heard it called a “Do-Hickey”….LOL! Also love all of the flower embellishments! This wreath is just too cute!! Great job!

  16. I love this! It’s so pretty and I love that it’s interchangeable.

  17. will you do a tutorial on your fabric flowers?

  18. Love this! Especially the interchangeable decorations! Does anyone ever do a winter wreath? After Christmas 2 years ago, I took a simple green wreath and added lots of white leaves, etc. and branches. Then I put a bright red cardinal on it. Looks so pretty during the transition to spring!

  19. How cute is this and I love that you can use it for so many different holidays!

  20. Super, super cute Myra! What a FABULOUS idea! :)

  21. I love this! I’ve seen them made with leftover sweater sleeves but this is much cuter and much more my style. I love how the burlap is so neutral that you truly can change it up to go with anything. Brilliant – thanks Myra! <3

  22. What a fun and cute idea!

  23. Candace says:

  29. SOOOO adorable Myra!!

    Have a great weekend!

  30. Cute!!!!! I need one for my front door. But since I’m lazy, I’m sure I’ll never make one. But then, you never know!

  31. This is so stink adorable. Thank you so much for sharing. I need to use this idea for my front door so I can easily switch it out for each season or holiday. You are so creative. I am so glad that I found your blog through the tatertots and jello link party.

  32. I am drooling over this wreath! What a clever idea on how to change it out for different seasons! Great Job!

  33. Love it! And you’re not alone with the burlap obsession (or the shower ideas – shhh) I love anything interchangeable. It’s like having ‘more bang for the buck’ or something. Don’t know, but love this!

    Droppin’ by from FB CrafterMinds!

  34. I love it!!!

    Would you ever consider doing a tutorial about how you made the embellishments for the embellishment-challenged among us?

  35. I like that your wreath is interchangeable! I have limited storage space but like to be seasonal with my door decor.

    • Thanks so much! Since we moved to a smaller house, I’m looking for ways to minimize seasonal decor storage. :)

  36. Myra ~ your burlap projects are always so gorgeous! I LOVE this wreath… and especially love how it’s interchangeable! Hope your day is extra mah-velous, too! ;)

  37. Love this! Following on FB so I can see more!
    Blessings,
    Amanda

  38. Myra, I just love your blog and this post is so cute and creative. I have been looking at burlap wreaths for the last week and planned to start working on my own this weekend. You are always so inspiring. How did you make all your flowers? You should do a tutorial on those. :)

    • You wish is my command. :) I’m planning an embellishment tutorial for next week! :) Thanks for your sweet comment!

  39. This is my favorite wreath YET! Just stumbled and tweeted your link!

  40. Love this! I just found you and I’m so happy I did. Your room makeover is gorgeous and I saw the wreath hanging on your door! I too would like to know how to make the fabric flower embellishments so I’ll keep watching for that tutorial. I’m going back to read more of your posts…

  41. Love your wreath! I just completed one that I would love for you to see. It’s at http://twogingerprinces.blogspot.com. Please visit me anytime!

  42. What a fantastic wreath! I LOVE how the jute looks with the burlap ruffle! Really lovely! Nice work! :)

    Thanks for inspiring!

  44. Hi Myra,

    What a beautiful fresh wreath! I have that same wooden(?) one and love this idea for sprucing it up. I like how you can see the shape of it under the jute.

    And the burlap is a perfect accent, no need to apologize for your obsession, it looks nice!

    Thank you so much for posting. My son is getting married at our barn next October and I could make this and use their colors and sit a note inside such as their names and wedding date. Anyone with ideas to help me transform a very large red barn into a lovely wedding site please email at blueann1@yahoo.com. I’m on pinterest too. The bride-to-be ideas are mason jars, burlap, wildflowers, and the barn! :)
