This wreath looks great and is really simple to make. I have been meaning to do something with a roll of hessian webbing I have been hoarding and now I have a snazzy new wreath for my front door!! I absolutely love natural colours mixed with red, they look so good! I hope you enjoy the tutorial and...... of course, have a great Christmas and festive season..........with love from Designery xx

This wreath looks great and is really simple to make. I have been meaning to do something with a roll of hessian webbing I have been hoarding and now I have a snazzy new wreath for my front door!! I absolutely love natural colours mixed with red, so this is very much me!


Materials and tools needed:
  • Cane wreath, approx 25cm in diameter (I found mine in an op shop and recycled it for this project)
  • Hessian webbing (approx 5 metres)
  • Hot glue gun
  • Linen ribbon (30-40cm)
  • Scissors


Instructions:

1. Using your hot glue gun, glue an end of your webbing at an angle, on to cane wreath. (Take care not to burn yourself with the hot glue!)


2. Once the glue has set (wait a few minutes for it do do so), you can start wrapping your wreath with the webbing. Wrap on angle. I used a 2cm overlap on each wrap of the webbing. Make sure you wrap quite tightly, or you will end up with lumpy bits on wreath.



3. Continue wrapping the wreath until you have double wrapped it. (I tried a single layer of wrapping, but it looked a bit thin). Snip off the remaining webbing. Using the glue gun, glue the end of the webbing at the rear of wreath.



4. Making the ribbon.
As I am completely hopeless at tying ribbons, I used a bit of a cheats way of getting a nice finish. I took a length of the leftover webbing and made two loops on the left hand side, the back loop slightly bigger than the front one. Now do the same on the other side, using the remaining webbing. Take the leftover end of webbing and wrap around the wreath and centre of your "bow", until it is secure enough to glue at rear of wreath behind the bow.






5. At the rear of the wreath (as pictured below), take a piece of linen ribbon and hot glue both ends to the back of the wreath. Wait a few minutes for glue to dry.


Your wreath is now ready to hang!
