I recently made this monogrammed burlap wreath for my friends’ 50th wedding anniversary. I found it originally on Pinterest from emmamag.com. Adding the monogrammed letter was my idea though. I love to make crafts but have never been very good at it. I always try to find crafts that are pretty basic and hard to mess up. This was the perfect project for me!
Materials you will need:
- Styrofoam wreath(whatever size you prefer, mine was 15 3/4 I think)
- 2 yards of burlap
- 1/2 yard of accent fabric of your choice
- glue gun and glue sticks
- ribbon or rope to hang the wreath
- Wood monogram letter and paint(optional)
- Lint roller (for cleaning up burlap which is apparently quite messy)
How to make:
- I painted my wood letter a teal color to match the teal burlap that I used for my bow. Only do this step if you are adding the monogram letter accent.
- Cut burlap into 4×4 inch squares, it does not need to be exact(this is why this was a good project for me). This took a while for me and made my hand hurt a lot, haha. Also, this was when I discovered that burlap is very messy(my table and I were covered)
- Cut ribbon to be 2-3 inches wide and wrap around the wreath in one spot and glue in place. This will be where you tie the bow on at the end.
- Fold all corners of the square of burlap up and glue the center onto the styrofoam wreath
- Repeat step 3 times a million(Ok, maybe not quite that many times). realistically this took me 3-4 hours.
- Tie or glue on your bow, and attach your letter. I chose to pre-tie my bow and glue it on but you can also tie it on so that you can change out the fabric throughout the year.
- Use your lint roller and vacuum to clean up all the burlap fibers!
