Burlap Valentine’s Wreath

/ / /

I’ve been on pins and needles wanting to share this fabulous tutorial ever since I hit publish on my Valentine’s Day Vignette post. But I’ve made myself wait until today. 🙂 When I started thinking about how I wanted to decorate for Valentine’s Day, I immediately thought of burlap. Why do I love the stuff so much?

It’s cheap, versatile and I adore the texture! So…I married Valentine’s Day and burlap right here in my living room. It’s official. They really like each other. {i’m insane, i know!}


Supplies you’ll need:

  • Heartshaped Wreath Form (I found mine at Hobby Lobby for around 3.50, I think)
  • Burlap (I used about 3/4 yard)
  • Glue gun & glue sticks
  • Scissors

Cut the burlap into approximate 2.5″ x 2.5″ squares. They don’t need to be precise…trust me.

Fold a burlap square in half and then in half again, so it looks like this

Dab the folded tip with some hot glue and then stick it on the wreath form.

{like this}

Repeat this process for approximately 1 1/2 hours or until the entire wreath is covered.  {I feel like I need to type…”or until a toothpick comes out clean.”} Ha!

{oooooooo, ahhhhhhhhh}

I hung my wreath with leftover fabric that I hot glued to the back of the wreath. You could also use ribbon.

Don’t you just love burlap?

  1. I never would have thought of using burlap, but I really like how it turned out. Isn’t it funny how “strange combinations” end up turning out the cutest?

  2. What a great idea!!! I’m wondering if it would work with fabric as well….I’m envious of your access to hobby lobby! I only get to one a few times a year when I visit my dad.

  3. I love this idea. I can’t wait to make one for myself and hang it year round! I always look forward to your posts, you have such terrific ideas.

  4. This is so pretty! I like the way the burlap looks fuller than using regular fabric. I was telling my daughter just yesterday what’s old is new again. About 17 years ago I used to make these kinds of wreaths with fabric and the straw wreaths. Instead of using hot glue we used the end of a pencil and wrapped the fabric around the end and stuck it in the wreath. No burned fingers that way and it was mindless work while watching TV!

    1. Hey Mary! Yes, I totally remember making those wreaths when I was a kid. I loved the “therapy” behind stuffing fabric into those wreaths with a pen. 🙂

    2. Mary,
      My mom made those types of wreaths too! That is the first thing I thought of when I saw this. I’m going to share it with her, we should get a little laugh out of it.

    1. Hey Kristi! 🙂 I got my burlap from Hobby Lobby on sale, but I’ve also gotten it at Hancocks. 🙂 I hope that helps!

  5. Hello-
    I am in love with TEXTURE, so I am in love with this wreath! I think that I might just have make me one. Have you see the red burlap? It’s pretty cool! Love this and your tutorial. I can’t wait to check out the rest of your blog! Have a fabulous weekend! Please, stop by sometime and say hello!!

  6. love this idea!! I don’t do hearts {I know. right. I guess I am a Vday scrooge???? how sad}, but I would totally rock this on a square or circle. great project, girl.

    1. Girl, you know what? I don’t do hearts either…typically. I don’t wear them and I don’t decorate with them….typically (blush) 🙂

  7. Love this burlap valentine’s wreath! Super cute!! Thanks for sharing this great project! Visiting from Sunday Blog Parade @ A Design Story!

  8. My first venture into your great website. How perfect that the first project that caught my eye was the Valentine Burlap, Being born on Valentines Day has me interested in anything heart related.
    I will be back……Irish

    1. How wonderful to be born on Valentine’s Day! 🙂 Just makes it extra special. 🙂 Come back anytime!!

  9. I made the burlap wreath this weekend and I feel in love with it. I am actually going to leave it up all year. I hung it over my bed and am planning to do a re-do on bedroom using burlap so this will be so great. Thanks for the idea.

  10. YAY! I loved this post and went and bought my supplies today! I bought red burlap and some little heart embellishments to add to it, as well as some white tulle to hang it with. I can’t wait! The heart foam seems a little small in the store but it looks the same as your picture, so hopefully it’ll turn out just as great as yours!
