I’ve been wanting to make a Burlap Sunflower Wreathe for some time now. I finally decided it was time so I grabbed all the supplies I’ve had for awhile and gave it a go. Like most things I do it’s spur of the moment and when I feel it’s the right time.
I used a 12″ wreathe wire. I used some pipe cleaners I had on hand and started adding them around. I tied them together in the middle too for support for the middle when I get there. I ended up adding more pipe cleaners as I went to fill in more.
I cut off 9 inch sections of the burlap. I literally just kept cutting and adding them till I went through the 2 and half rolls I had on hand. These I found at my local Walmart in the craft section.
I folded the sections in half to make butterfly like sections and then tied them onto each pipe cleaner. I did two on each one to double it up for more coverage.
You can see here how I bunched them up and pinched the center. Then you pinch them in half as they lay down to give that butterfly winged effect.
For the center I took some smaller 5 inch burlap I had on hand and twisted and spun it altogether to make a spiral. I then glued down the pipe cleaners you see above as a way to attach it to the other pipe cleaners I attached in the middle. I used a square felt piece to glue on top to cover it up and add for extra hold.
