Fall wreaths are perfect to display this time of year. Once the weather starts getting cooler and the colors of fall start to come out – that is when we all love beautiful fall wreaths. One of the easiest ways to bring autumn to your front porch and to your guests is with a welcoming burlap wreath. Multi-colored burlap wreaths are different than the basic natural colored burlap wreath because they use 2 different colors or patterns of burlap ribbon. In this tutorial and video you will learn how to make a multi-colored chevron printed burlap wreath.

Burlap Wreath Directions
Watch video above for detailed directions for intertwining more than one type of ribbon.
1. Use one end of the burlap ribbon to make a knot around the wire wreath. You can also secure the burlap with a piece of string if you prefer.
2. Push the burlap into one of the sections of the form. Be sure to twist it so that the loop is sideways (this ensures that the wire wreath form is covered).
3. Continue making loops but make sure that the next “bubble” in the wreath is next to the one you just did. This helps hold the previous loop in place. Keep the loops even in size as you push the burlap through the form.
4. Continue making loops until the wreath is as full as you want. You can make all your “bubbles” the same size or vary the size for a more asymmetrical finished burlap wreath.
5. Cut off the burlap if you have extra.
6. Make another knot to complete the wreath or tuck the end into the bubbles.
7. Use pipe cleaners to keep the burlap in place on the back of the wreath.
