Rustic Patriotic Wreath Using Burlap
Burlap mesh ribbon
Burlap ribbon with stars
I found these floral picks at Michaels. The metal star and twigs are perfect for this look. It has a long stem which I threaded through the mesh and twisted it to secure it.
The bow is what really makes this wreath pop. It’s such a simple to make bow. My instructions can be found here. Different types of ribbon will give you lots of different looks. You’ll need a minimum of three strips of ribbon and a stapler.
Once the bow was completed, I used E6000 glue to attach it to the mesh. This ribbon was very heavy and the weight caused it to droop a bit. That problem was solved by using a piece of twine, wrapped around the bow and then around the wreath and tied off in back. It was easy to tuck the twine out of sight. Another piece of twine was used to make a loop for hanging.
I got the rustic look I was going for and I did it for under twenty dollars.
