The Ultimate DIY Farmhouse Wreath!

I’ve been searching high and low for a neutral farmhouse wreath that I could keep in my home all year long.  I had a few requirements as well.  It needed to be large, and full of texture with many different materials incorporated in it.  Unfortunately, I have not been able to find a one that fit my criteria, so the result is my ultimate DIY farmhouse wreath.

Use random items from home to create the ultimate DIY farmhouse wreath.

So, what do I do? I make a neutral farmhouse wreath of my own.  

The great thing about this farmhouse wreath is that all the items that I used in it were already in my home and are probably in yours as well.

The Ultimate DIY Farmhouse Wreath

Here are the things I used to make my DIY farmhouse wreath:

  • Straw wreath form
  • white poster board
  • strips of fabric
  • rope
  • hot glue gun
  • butcher paper

I really wanted this DIY farmhouse wreath to be a beefy, substantial wreath.  When I am looking to add farmhouse decor ideas, I like to incorporate a lot of texture, and dimension.  

Start with a plain straw wreath form.

I  took about 10 feet of brown butcher paper and twisted it up into a rope type structure.

Now, wrap it around the straw wreath form making sure to cover the entire wreath.  I hot glued the ends and made sure the paper was secure on the wreath form.

This will become the most epic DIY farmhouse style wreath ever!

Next, take your strips of fabric ( I used strips of canvas drop cloth about 2 inches wide ), and wrap it randomly around the wreath, hot gluing it wherever it needs to be secured.

Once that is done, I took my white poster board, and I cut it into approximately 1 1/2 inch strips.  I then randomly wrapped the strips of paper around the wreath.

 I made sure to cross the paper and keep it loose to add more volume to the farmhouse wreath.

Now that the paper has been applied to the farmhouse wreath, I applied my rope.

I hot glued the end of the rope and then wrapped it around the wreath, keeping the placement slightly random, as to not look to perfect.  There is perfection in imperfection.

  1. I like everything about your wreath except the poster board strips. Why add them? Everything else is natural fiber – rope and canvas, and the brown paper adds plenty of bulk. You could add a burlap bow!
