Simple Jute Webbing Wreath

My mom is always getting rid of stuff.  Usually a very good thing for me – I love being the recipient of stuff!

The other day she gave me a big roll of jute upholstery webbing.  yay!

With it were instructions from an old BH&G magazine to make a simple wreath using the webbing.  I went right to work on that…

Soooooo easy!  I cut about 3-4 yards of webbing and wrapped it around a styrofoam wreath.

  (This footstool won the DIY club’s June contest, and I received so many awesome prizes from their sponsors!  A huge box of styrofoam wreaths, cones, balls, and blocks from Dow styrofoam crafts were just one of the prizes.  I was so excited to have one on hand – and for free!  I encourage everyone to enter that contest – it was great!)

Anyway – just wrap the webbing around the wreath.  I tried to pull it tight as I went, but I didn’t glue or pin anything until I was done wrapping.  Then I used a few of these floral pins to tack the ends in place.  (You really don’t need to tack it along the way, the webbing is pretty wide and stays in place.)

I trimmed the extra webbing to the length I wanted to use to hang it.  I didn’t fold it over into a loop because the webbing is really stiff, and it looked to bulky doubled over.

Then I made a bow to glue onto the wreath.  This was the hardest part!  The webbing just doesn’t want to be twisted and pulled.  It turned out ok.

Glue the bow at the top of the wreath, and hang!

New wreath, old door.  Perfection!  :)

Total cost – None!

The webbing is less than $1/yard at JoAnn’s, and most wreath forms this size are less than $5.  You can definitely make this wreath for less than $10 in about 10 minutes!  Give it a try!
