Now that we have a home, there are certain things that I just need. I need to have a wreath on the front door for every occasion. Does that make me weird? My husband seems to think so. I’ve gotta tell you – I don’t care! Wreaths are cool. I made this rustic burlap and berries St. Patrick’s Day wreath. It’s not specific to St. Patty’s Day, though, so if you’re as forgetful as I am then it’s fine if you leave it up for a few months.
You will need a grapevine wreath (find it here). I love the rustic, slightly undone look of these wreaths, with the branches barely held together. It feels a little wild – kind of reminds me of myself. 😉
Use burlap ribbon (you can buy it here) to create your own bow. I am inexperienced in bow-making and used this easy burlap bow tutorial from Mommy Suite. She used a thinner burlap ribbon (2.5″) in her tutorial. With a large wreath, I chose a wider burlap ribbon (4″) to create a more substantial bow. It was a little challenging and I used a lot of hot glue. Be sure to have plenty of hot glue sticks nearby!
I love how the bow turned out. Any guesses on how I attached it to the wreath? That’s right – more hot glue! I might have gone overboard with the glue, but this thing is not going anywhere. Next, I slid the stems of the green berries (click here to buy) through the wreath and twisted the ends to keep them in place.
Voila! My guests are now greeted with a rustic burlap and berries wreath. I’m in love. I wonder how long this wreath will stay up before I remember to replace it with a new one…
Are you a wreath addict?
