Tutorial for Burlap and Roses Wreath

Hey Friends~
It's the second week of August
What does that mean?
If I'm not in the pool, I'm creating.


Burlap roses have been on my "to create" list this week.
Along with white roses, designed from loose petals.
So the fun began with burlap ribbon.
Starting with a 12" round wreath,
I wrapped it with the burlap.

Next I created burlap roses for the wreath
using the same ribbon
folded in half
 then twisted and wrapped to form a rose.
You tube has many tutorials on these roses.

Once completed I moved on to designing white roses
from loose single petals.

These petals are folded and glued in half from the petal bottom up,
twisted tight for the center bud,
then layered around the center to form the rose.
I found the curly petals work best for this project.
These petals have a cotton feel which work better then the 
silky type of petals.
Where did I get these you might ask??
I think Hobby Lobby, Michael's or Jo-Anne's.

Once the flowers are all created,
it's time to add some leaves.

You have seen me paint leaves in other projects
and these will also be painted cottage white.


An easy tip when painting items like this~
Use a piece of cardboard and carpet tape.
Place the leaves or small item on the tape
to hold  it in place and then paint away.

When dry, turn over and paint the backside.
After all the elements are complete
the fun begins
 by placing them on the burlap wrapped wreath.

As you can see, I place the roses and leaves a bit off center.
I find that to be more pleasing to the eye.

I also added natural wood buttons here and there for interest.

To the buttons, I use a sharpie pen to mark where thread would be.
A few hat pins are also added with pearl tops.

Before I go~
below are a few more of my garden inspirations
hand painted for my etsy shop with lots of love.

These goodies including the wreath have found new homes
and I am blessed they might be enjoyed.


See you next week.
Blessings to all.

Just lovely. I wish I could tell you how many of those roses I've made in the past couple of years. Hundreds, for sure.

I've got some burlap - perhaps I should make myself one of these wreaths. Thanks for the nudge.

Happy crafting!

Hi Celeste! Oh, your wreath just turned out most beautiful! I have been a big fan of burlap but I love your wreath and those little roses. The petal roses are the perfect touch and I love you used a marker instead of thread! You're so smart and talented! I always adore your paintings.
Be a sweetie,
Shelia ;)

That wreath is so beautiful Celestina! What a great tutorial! Thank you for sharing this. I would love to make something like this for fall maybe incorporating dark red and orange colors. Hope you're enjoying the last days of summer. I'm getting ready to go visit my family in the States so I've been very busy buying gifts for family and packing. Have a great week!


Thanks for sharing your wreath making. It is perfect for fall.

So pretty! I love the combination of burlap with white roses. The colors together are soft and rough but elegant at the same time.

Crafting during this heatwave is a smart idea!

Beautiful my friend. Hot and humid again here. I'm ready for fall


Deborah Montgomery said...

Beautiful!! I love how pretty this is. The burlap roses don't look too hard to make, but I imagine the roses made from the petals take a little patience. Love the touches of the buttons and pins. Not surprised that it found a home so quickly.
Yes, it seems everyone is hot these days! Thankful for AC!
Blessings, Deborah

This was so interesting. What a gift for a seamstress.
The wreath is awesome.

Mrs. W. said...

Dear Celeste,

What a lovely elegant wreath! I have never done anything like this. Once I attempted to spray branches gold for an arrangement - way back when I was first married - but my husband was not the least bit impressed, so I have never really attempted any other such project.


Castles Crowns and Cottages said...

Dearest Celeste! Has it cooled down for you yet? Have you had a chance to use the pool? It is HOT and HUMID here and it's dragging me down! But I'll stay still and enjoy the quiet until this passes. Thank you so much for taking a look at Vicki's blog interview with me! It was so fun and such a special moment. Be well and enjoy the rest of the summer!

Jill said...

Absolutely beautiful! I will have to try this, love adding wreaths to my front door :-)


Stephanie said...

Sweet Celeste, your wreath is a work of art! I love how you painted the leaves {I never would have thought of that} and the roses are perfect!

You create the loveliest things, my friend. Hugs to you!

Kim said...

Great tutorial. They don't sell all the beautiful wreaths that they do in the States so I love getting ideas on how to make one of my own here in Italy. Thanks for the tutorial:-)
