Elisabeth and I have started hosting in-home craft parties and we were very blessed this weekend to have had our very first one. We love the red, chevron and natural burlap wreath Jill chose to create with her friends and family and we are excited to teach you how to make it here!
You’ll need a wire wreath form, 30 feet of red burlap, 30 feet of natural burlap and 15 feet of red chevron plus some extra if you want to make the bow, too.
This wreath starts our just like our Texas wreath or our Americana wreath. You flip the wire wreath form over so it makes the shape of a bowl, then tie the natural burlap into a knot on the second bar.
Then flip the wire wreath over so the bowl shape of the wreath form is facing down. This makes the knot at the back of the wreath. Then use your fingers to push a section of the burlap through the first space.
Push through another section of burlap through the second opening.
Then again for the third opening. This gives you three “ruffles” of burlap in a row.
Flip the wreath back over and tie a red burlap knot.
Repeat the process of flipping the wreath back over and pushing through three sections of red just like you did for the natural burlap.
Now flip the wreath over so the bowl is facing up and tie a red chevron knot.
This time I only pushed through 2 “ruffles” of the red chevron and finished the third space with a natural burlap.
Now since you have all the knots made just alternate the same pattern of 3 natural burlap ruffles, 3 red burlap ruffles, 2 red chevron ruffles and a natural ruffle.
When it is all done it should look something like this…
I love how it looks, especially with the bow on the front.
Interested in making the bow too?Our 6 loop bow tutorial is coming soon!
This wreath can easily be customized with different colored burlap or positioning of the bows. We even gave our guests the option to add snowflakes.
Here is our group party picture below with all the guest variations!
