A year-round wreath

I seam to get lazy when it comes to changing the wreath on my door. Im embarrassed to say I had my fall wreath hung until around mid-December. So I decided to find a simple DIY wreath that I could keep up throughout the year. This is super easy to make and all you have to do is change the ribbon as the seasons change. You could also add some pretty fabric flowers to add a little extra style. Here is what I did…

You will need a styrofoam wreath, straight pins, and lots of burlap squares. I cut lots of 2" squares (and they need not be perfect).

Cut a few long burlap strips and wrap your wreath with them. Secure in place with pins.

Fold a square in half, then in half again the other way. Put a straight pin through the bottom corner and stick it right into your wreath.

Now just keep folding your squares and pinning them all the way around your wreath until you think it looks full.

Choose a beautiful ribbon and hang your lovely wreath on the door. Now step back and smile.

  1. Love this wreath! Found something similar a couple months ago on Pinterest that I made, but I like this one better. With one swift change of the ribbon, it’s a whole new season 🙂
