Christmas Denim and Burlap Wreath

Thanks for Sharing!

My farmhouse cardboard ornaments continue to be so popular on Pinterest that I decided to make a Christmas denim and burlap wreath to showcase one of them to give an additional way to use it for Christmas decor.

HOW TO MAKE A FARMHOUSE CHRISTMAS WREATH

STEP 1: PREPARE DENIM STRIPS

I used left over denim from thrifted jeans. The denim was light weight which made it easy to tear in strips and fray. You can also find lightweight denim at JoAnn’s.

Cut out long sections from jeans that you’ll be working with. Snip into the denim end enough that you can pull apart and rip your first strip. You’ll be making your strips 2.5 inches wide.

Pull strings away from the denim strip to fray each side as seen below. Keep pulling string pieces until you get the amount of frayed look you want.

STEP 2: WRAP THE WREATH FORM

Use hot glue to secure the denim ends.

Wrap the wreath form as seen below. I was able to get my wreath wrapped using two long strips.

STEP 3: MAKE BURLAP SECTIONS AND ADD TRIM

I used burlap scraps leftover from previous projects.

Cut 3 inches width of burlap sections then pull strings out on each side so it looks as seen in picture below.

Attach the burlap sections with hot glue.

Cut ribbon and baker’s twine and tie the pieces together around the burlap. My tie was tight enough so that I didn’t have to glue on the back.

STEP 4: MAKE THE DENIM BOW AND ADD ORNAMENT

Rip another strip of denim fabric long enough to tie a bow on the wreath. Fray the edges and the strip ends.

Slip the denim strip through the Christmas ornament ribbon hanger. Evenly place the strip under the wreath form and tie the strip into a knot then tie the bow.

Twist a piece of floral wire around the knot and hang on your wreath holder.

Let me know in the comment section if you plan to make the cardboard tree ornament along with my Christmas denim and burlap wreath.

  1. I love a good denim upcycle so this is right up my street! I’m going to pop by and take a look at your card ornaments now too as this tree is just lovely.
    The burlap and frayed denim textures are lovely together and the little pops of red make it feel Christmassy. Lovely!

  2. Allyson, this wreath is so cute. I am going to show this to my daughter-in-love who loves to craft. I love the look of burlap and denim. Wishing you a lovely week!

  3. I love this wreath, Allyson. It’s simple but so very effective. And I’m a real sucker for denim and burlap — it fits my home and my way of living. Your instructions are great, too.

    Thanks so much for popping by Marmelade Gypsy the other day. It’s a pleasure to “meet” you!
