Burlap Daisy Wreath Tutorial

This time I’m going to be showing you how to make a daisy flower wreath from poly burlap for your front door.

  • 1 – roll of 10 inch white poly burlap (or whatever color you want for the base of the flower)
  • 1 – roll of 10 inch green poly burlap for the leaves, you will not use the whole roll
  • 1 – 10 inch wire wreath frame
  • 15 – white chenille stems
  • 1 round 10 inch felt circle to cover the back of your wreath
  • 3 inch zip ties
  • 8 inch zip ties
  • 1 yard of natural jute burlap
  • Rotary Cutter and Mat
  • Glue Gun and Glue Sticks
  • Scissors

First you will cut 5 pieces of green poly burlap at 11.5 inches long

It’s important when cuting your poly burlap that you take your time and cut between the squares of the burlap weave to reduce the amount of fraying you may occur while assembling your wreath

STEP TWO:  Lay your cut burlap with the curled edges facing up take two opposite corners, fold them inward, and then gather in the middle until you form a bow tie looking leaf

STEP THREE: Flip the ‘bow tie’ over and attach to the outside layer of the frame of your wreath fram, they should all attach where the crossbar meet.

Once all your green leaves are attached it should look like this

STEP FOUR: Now cut 30 pieces of the white burlap into 10 inch pieces.  Use the flatter pieces on the outside of the wreath and the curlier pieces towards the inside to give more definition to your petals.

TEP FIVE: You will do the same method as the leaves but now you will put two petals on top of the green leaves and then twist your chenille stem tightly. Fold it underneath the wreath frame and twist to secure your petals.

STEP SIX: Stagger your petals in between the outer rim petals stacking two petals on top of each other.

The last set of petals will be attached to the inside of the wreath form where the brackets meet on the wire wreath frame. Make sure to attach 2 petals for each space.

STEP SEVEN: To prepare for the middle of the daisy wreath you will need to cut your jute burlap into 16 inch by 11 inch rectangles. I’ve made a video to show you how I put the Daisy swirl together below:

STEP EIGHT: After you have attached your center onto the daisy wreath you can attach your felt circle with 3 inch zip ties all around the back of your wreath. This will protect your door or wall when you hang your wreath.
