Many of you may not know this, but this wreath was one of my first projects that went viral, if viral was a thing in 2012, lol. It is one of my all-time favorite projects. Now it’s 2024 and I am seeing burlap making a comeback so I had to revamp this tutorial! It is still a timeless project for all of the shabby vintage lovers. Enjoy!

Back in 2012 shabby chic was all the rage. Book page wreaths were in their glory and I knew I wanted to make one but, I like to put my own spin on things. So I used burlap fabric instead of paper to create this incredible wreath!

It does take a little longer than making the book page wreath. So be patient. I promise it will be well worth it as you can see.

Creating a beautiful burlap wreath for your home is the perfect way to add shabby chic or rustic charm to any space.

This post will walk you through making a burlap wreath by rolling the fabric similarly to how you would roll pages for a book page wreath.

Let’s get started making this fun project!

Burlap Wreath – Book Page Wreath Style!


  • Cut your burlap into 4 1/2-inch long squares,
  • Roll the ends together from opposite corners, making an open-end cone.
  • Glue them together with hot glue.

  • On the back layer, glue the small end of the cone flat to the wreath as shown above.
  • For the rest of the layers, fold the small end of the cone and glue it to the wreath. Make each one the same size and glue them close together.
  • Repeat the steps all the way around and inside the center edge of the wreath.

Hot glue a ribbon on the back and that it!

TIP: Be careful where you hang this wreath. It is made of Jute which can weep oils from the fiber in humid temperatures. Also, I recommend hanging this wreath indoors when using regular hot glue. If you plan to hang this outdoors I recommend using a hot glue that is made to withstand heat like Gorilla Glue.

This wreath is very simple to make and it makes a stunning statement decor piece! I just love it and I hope you do too!

Love it? Pin it!

  1. Picture of the folded square -?

    1. Hi Phillis,
      This post is one of the first posts I created for the bog back in 2011. Unfortunately, I did not take pic of the square. The burlap is 5 inches wide and I cut 4 1/2 pieces, So it is not quite a square piece. Then roll the burlap from one corner to the other making a long cone shape. Then glue one end to the wreath. I hope this helps. It really is easy make.

  2. What is the size of the straw wreath and the ribbon (12 inch)? It says 4 1/2 inch squares but I have not found 4 1/2 inch burlap ribbon (at Michaels, Hobby Lobby, or Amazon…) Thx! I am NEW to crafting.

    1. Hi Amanda,
      The Wreath is a around 14 inches wide. The burlap ribbon is from Michaels, it is in the floral supply section, where the tape, wire, wreaths, etc. are located. It is on large roll, 5 1/2 inches wide by so many feet~(I’m not sure how long my label is missing). You have to cut the ribbon into squares to make the wreath ~ I hope this helps. Good Luck!

  9. This is stupid cute… I seriously have a thing for burlap and love to see new ideas that people come up with. Knowing me, I would have gotten frustrated about a quarter of the way into the first layer and somehow hot glue my hand to the wreath, but you did an awesome job!

    Cant wait to see what you do next!
