Did you finish making your burlap wreath? And now you’re wondering how to decorate it? There are a few strategies that can help.
One of the best strategies is to go for on big decorative focal point. An oversized flower, bow, letter, or even a plush toy can add color and personality to your wreath. The trick here is to make sure the decorative element you choose is as wide, or almost as wide, as the part of the wreath where you want to attach it.
Create a 3D Effect
You can also create a sort of scene within your wreath. I especially like to do this with natural elements such as flowers, birds, and even a bird’s nest. The trick is to make sure the decorations you use can be placed into the folds of burlap without sinking into the ribbon too deeply.
Keep it on the Surface
Sometimes simple cutout designs can be fun. (Especially if you have a Cricut to design and print them.) You can attach these flat decorative elements to the ribbon with glue, or if you’re using fabric, with a few stitches using matching thread.
No matter what, give yourself permission to get creative and try a few things. Often inspiration comes through experimentation!
