I love burlap wreaths like this Christmas wreath from FeelingNifty. It’s so cute and easy, and it just looks so perfect! So I figured I’d try my hand at a summer version.

Here’s what you’ll need:

  • green foam wreath form (green is stronger and more durable than the white)
  • small paper flag toothpicks (cupcake toppers)
  • scissors
  • 2 rolls of burlap ribbon, thick
  • twine
  • hot glue, glue gun

Directions:

Begin by adding a dab of hot glue to the end of the burlap ribbon. Press it to the inside of the wreath form and hold in place until secure.

Start wrapping the burlap ribbon around the wreath form. Slightly overlap as you wrap. Pull tightly as you wrap to avoid any gapping or wrinkles.

Continue wrapping until the entire wreath is covered with the burlap. When you get to the end of your ribbon, add another dab of glue and press the end to the inside of the wreath for a clean finish.

Now, snip the flags off the toothpicks.

Cut a length of twine that will run across the entire wreath.

Add some glue along the piece of twine and start pressing the flags to to it. Space them evenly as you add, making sure each flag is going in the same direction.

Continue adding flags to the twine until the length is full.
