Patriotic Red, White & Blue Burlap Wreath
Simple Red, White & Blue Bubble Wreath
I’ve seen all sorts of burlap “bubble” wreaths on Pinterest, and have long been wanting to make one. A bubble wreath is a wreath made with burlap fabric and a wreath form — I made my wreath with a metal wreath form. For a bubble wreath, you create 3D loops of burlap for a multi-dimensional effect.
How to Make a Burlap Bubble Wreath
I started out by tying on my blue burlap on and then alternated the red and white ribbon. I found the easiest way to make the loops (or “bubbles”) of ribbon was to tie a long strip of burlap onto the wreath, knotting it in the back. I then tied loose knots of burlap ribbon onto the metal wreath form, being sure not to tie the ribbon tight. (That way I could easily create big loops of burlap for my wreath.)
As I created my loose knots or loops, I bunch them together to form a tighter mass of burlap loops.
I’ve read tutorials that say you can create a burlap bubble wreath in about 10 minutes. But honestly, I think mine took 45-60 minutes, or about an hour. I had trouble at first figuring out how to create stable looks of burlap that wouldn’t slide on my metal wreath form. (That’s where I found that creating loose knots is a good technique.)
My daughters say that this wreath is my best wreath so far this year!
I usually take my wreath apart each month and re-use the metal wreath form, but I might keep this wreath around for a while — it would work well for both Memorial Day and Fourth of July / Independence Day.
