Burlap & Black Lace Wreath

Good Morning!  

I'm so excited to share my Halloween wreath with all of you today!  Since I love anything with lace and burlap, I decided to combine the two materials for a vintage chic looking wreath.   It was extremely simple to make and can be dressed up with any of your favorite embellishments.  Happy Crafting!

  • 10 inch wreath form 
  • 1 yard of burlap
  • 2 yards of lace ribbon
  • hot glue gun
  • scissors
  • embellishments (I used an old black lace headband that I had with a rosette attached to it, I just cut the rosette off from the headband part) 

    • Cut your burlap into 3 inch strips.
    • With one piece of burlap strip start by placing a dab of glue on an end piece to your wreath form.
    • Wrap the burlap strip around the wreath form, overlapping the previous burlap strip and glue every few wraps to keep the burlap attached to the wreath.
    • Once you get to the end of the strip, hot glue the end to the wreath form.
    • Start the next strip over the end of the previous and continue wrapping.
    • Continue to wrap and glue until your wreath form is completely covered in burlap strips.
    • With one end of your lace ribbon, glue the end piece to the wreath and start wrapping around the burlap. 
    • Once the lace is wrapped around, just glue the opposite end that you started with to the back of the wreath form.
    • Glue or pin any embellishments you would like to use.  I added a few black feathers to the back of my black rosette and pinned it right to the wreath form.

      1. I love how simple and elegant this is. Thanks for sharing!

      2. Thanks for your comment on my blog! This is a really cute idea. I have some burlap that I need to use so I think I'm going to try it :)

      3. I like the two textures combined. And the flower and feathers are great.

      4. I love this! It's classy and creepy at the same time. :) Thanks for linking up to my Halloween party!
