What do we need for this little gem? Willow branch wreath, 2 packages of burlap strip, pipe cleaners, (I got mine from Michaels), & flowers or Christmas accents of your choice.

I began by cutting all my pipe cleaners in half. Then, all there is to this is feeding a pipe cleaner into the structure of the willow wreath, create a loop in your burlap and attach the loop to the willow wreath by twisting the two together. Add a pipe cleaner, another burlap loop, twist, twist.. and keep going…

I wanted to finish the bottom of my wreath off with a bow. So I took two layers of burlap and tied them into double layer bow, nice and full and strong.

All done your wreath loops? No need to be perfect! Don’t panic if some loops are a touch bigger or smaller, or spacing is a little wider or narrower, the burlap is actually very forgiving.

Leave a little room for your Christmas accents. In my case I found some faux magnolia blooms, along with gold and glittery branches, and of course, my burlap bow. So I left about a 12 or 15″ gap in my loops.

I positioned the stems along the wreath, and wrapped them around slightly (they were pretty flexible), then took more burlap and wrapped all the way around the stems and wreath, (just like you would with a bandage around your arm) and tied it off.

I tucked one last pipe cleaner into the wrap, to hold the burlap bow in place. Once you’ve got everything in place, give everything a little fluff, and go choose the place of honour for your newest holiday creation!

In my case it was the staircase railing you see head on, as you walk through the front door. And, its not too heavy, so a large 3M hook did the trick! (Love those things).

See? Well on your way to some Christmas Cheer & Holiday Fun! Happy Holidays everybody! May all things be Merry & Bright with you, and your loved ones!
