2. Secure the ends of the burlap ribbon with twine or yarn. This is a great way to secure it because you’ll be able to reuse the wreath foam and the burlap in the future so we don’t want to damage either of them.

Don’t worry about the yarn since it won’t be visible at all. You can also use a similar color twine.

9. A few inches away ruffle again and place it anywhere close to the first ruffle.

15. Then insert it into the yarn loops right below the ruffles.

16. When you get it in the desired place, insert the other spring so it will look like a larger spring. I inserted it between the ruffles and the first sprig.

You should get something like this:

17. Cut a couple of strings of yarn, wire, or twine and secure your springs wrapping them to the back.

What I did was find the central column of the springs and insert the yarn through the branches so it wouldn’t be visible and then tied a knot on the back.

18. Then make a cute bow with a plaid ribbon (or your favorite one) and glue it to the red berries spring and insert it through the yarn loops between tree springs and ruffles as well.

23. Make a knot depending on how high you want your wreath to be on your door. Met hanger is long so I left a little ribbon at the top.

Crafting Tips

  • Prepare the burlap by ironing it quickly before you begin. This will make it easier to work with by smoothing out any wrinkles.
  • When making a beautiful bow for your wreath, don’t just use one kind of ribbon. Combine and pick out different textures, sizes, and patterns to make things look more interesting and create a feeling of depth and pop of color. Try playing around with different ways of putting ribbons on top of each other and tying them in different styles, like a regular bow or a relaxed knot, to add a special farmhouse feel.
  • Instead of just wrapping the yarn around the wreath, you can add some big yarn balls or fringes. These soft decorations will add a warm and playful touch to your farmhouse wreath, reminding you of cozy winter nights by the fire.
  • Make your wreath stand out by adding small ornaments that are meaningful to you and your family. Hang small stockings, little wooden snowflakes, pinecones, eucalyptus stems, or special small items in the springs to make a wreath that tells a story and brings back precious memories.
  • Make your wreath look even more special by adding battery-operated fairy lights throughout the greenery.
  • Make your wreath more special by putting your initials on it. Make a letter out of wood or cardboard, then cover it with thick yarn or burlap. Stick it in the middle or at the bottom of your wreath to make it unique and pretty.
  • Try different shapes for wreath forms: Although the typical round shape is traditional, feel free to be creative and try something different like a square, oval, or heart-shaped wreath for a special farmhouse touch.

Frequently Asked Questions

How do I choose the right size for my Christmas Wreath?

The size of your wreath is up to you and where you want to put it. Measure the space where you want to hang your wreath and think about how big it should be in relation to that space. A typical diameter for a wreath is usually about 18 to 24 inches wide, but you can change it if you want and have enough room.

Can I use different colors for the burlap, yarn, and ribbon?

Of course. Even though the rustic farmhouse style usually has neutral colors, you can still add splashes of bright colors if you want to. Pick colors that go well with your chosen theme and holiday decorations. You can choose between white or cream burlap, and pick yarn and ribbon in colors that go well together or stand out, to make it look interesting.

How do I attach the greenery springs securely to the wreath?

You can do as I did and use yarn or twine strings to secure things in place or use thin wire or a special glue gun to stick the greenery to the burlap surface. Wind the wire around the stems of the wreath tightly and make sure it is attached securely to the frame of the wreath. If you are using a hot glue gun, put a little bit of glue on the stems and press them hard onto the wreath. This will make sure they don’t move during the holiday season.

How long will my Christmas Wreath last?

Put the wreath inside or in a safe place that is not in the sun or bad weather. Try not to touch or handle too much, as this could make the materials move around or become loose. If you keep your wreath in a cool and dry place, you can enjoy it for many years.
