Easy Burlap Knot Wreath



I ventured into a new thrift store about a week ago and found a stack of 6 crafting wreaths for 50 cents each. I snatched them all up, not knowing what I would do with them.

I decided to try the "As seen all over blogland" burlap knot wreath this morning. So easy, and I think it turned out great! Especially when layered over a mirror or chalkboard, or draped over a curtain rod or headboard.

I started by cutting strips of burlap about 8-10 inches long and 1-2 inches wide. I didn't measure, I think the irregularity adds to the design.





Then just tie the burlap strip around the wreath, making sure to cover the the wreath well by putting each strip partially over the last. Pretty straight forward.


When finished hang with some ribbon. So easy and no sewing involved!




***UPDATE***

I just did one with fabric. It needs a bauble hanging in the middle I think...any suggestions? It screams little girls room to me.

Oh, love this! I'll have to try it. Can you do it with any fabric?

Linsey said...

Thanks Susan!

I did buy some shabby looking floral fabric (bedsheets) at the same thrift store. I'm going to tea/coffee stain it, rip it into strips and try the same technique! I bet it will work...

It looks lovely hanging over your chalkboard.

Beautiful, Linsey! I've made one poking burlap squares into the straw wreath but this is darling! Love it displayed on your chalkboard! Thanks so much for sharing!:)

Kim @ Savvy Southern Style said...

I believe I could even tackle this. How cute.

Linsey said...

Thanks everybody! Burlap is my best friend this year...cheap, shabby, and hundreds of uses.

I love this--so easy--could do it while watching TV! Thanks for sharing!

Anita @ Cedar Hill Ranch said...

Too cute, great job Linsey. I love, love my new painting. Hubby says it looks so nice in the city house that we should keep it here. So, it might not even make it to the country.

Sweet....and fun! What an easy project, Linsey! How about a sparkly prism for the middle...or even a pine cone or Christmas ornament for the holidays? :)

This is so cute!! I am SERIOUSLY obsessed with wreaths (seriously - I have a Pinterest board called "I might be a little obsessed with wreaths.") LOL Definitely going to Pin this one!

Jan said...

I love the look of these wreaths, thanks for reminding me just how much! : ).. Great job. I realllly need to make one too. They would make some terrific gifts.. Hmm! As for the bauble in the middle of the fabric one? I love the look of some Christmas tree ornaments. They have all kinds of great ones out right now that could be spray painted a different color. Good luck, I'm sure you will figure out something great for it!

So cute! I'll have to try it for Christmas. Great job!

Cathy @My 1929 Charmer said...

I am so in love with anything burlap this season, and this is the first time I seen this as a wreath. Lovely. I don't think it needs anything in the middle, but a cute ornament of metal bell might be nice. I'm hoping you will share this over at Sunday's Best Party going on now. Sharing ideas is a good thing!

Hi . Great wreath idea. I just made a red, white, & blue one. Your blog looks beautiful--found you on Pinterest. Thanks!

The wreath is really cute, but the chalkboard is what caught my eye ;) I love chalkboards, but I can't stand my writing on them. However, even I could make loops lelele! You have a beautiful home and blog, and I'm a new follower.

Have a lovely weekend!'
