Thank you Burlap Fabric for providing my supplies. All opinions are 100% my own.
This project was made with burlap ribbon from BurlapFabric.com. They have so much burlap fabric, ribbon and more. I really loved working with this burlap ribbon. It is probably the best quality burlap ribbon I’ve ever used. It doesn’t shred or fall apart, and I love that it comes in gorgeous colors.
Years ago I saw this lovely pumpkin wall hanging made of swirls of mesh ribbon. I think it’s been going around Pinterest for years. One of my neighbors even made that pumpkin. I thought it was gorgeous, but it inspired me to use burlap ribbon and make my own version as a Christmas Tree.
I thought it would be lovely to hang on the front door instead of a typical Christmas wreath. I love the homespun look that burlap gives.
DIY Burlap Christmas Tree Wall Hanging
- 1 roll of 9-inch wide burlap ribbon – green
- 1 roll of 4-inch wide burlap ribbon – red
- 18″ Kraft Paper Wire
- homespun style ornament – optional
- 1 piece of cardboard cut into a triangle shape
- glue gun and plenty of glue sticks
This is the measurements I cut my original cardboard backing, which I just got from ripping up a box. This was the perfect size because it used up nearly the entire roll of green burlap ribbon. The finished measurements for my tree are about 24 x 25 inches.
This is a great project that takes less than a couple hours to complete. You can watch a Christmas movie and drink hot chocolate as you work.
Once the cardboard triangle is cut, you’ll cut 6 inch pieces of the green burlap ribbon. I used my rotary cutter and mat and cut about 10-15 at a time as I worked.
Take a 6-inch piece of burlap, roll it up, and glue just one end of the roll together. Then, add another squirt of glue and place it on the cardboard. I recommend starting at the bottom of the triangle and working your way up. In the tutorial below, you can see I started in the middle because I had no idea what I was doing. But, after placing those three in the middle, I began working from the bottom up, so that each layer’s raw edges were covered by the next upper layer.
Here is a picture tutorial to visually explain:
I was so excited as I added more and more rolls of burlap ribbon and could see how the tree was taking shape. It was exactly like I pictured in my head! Don’t you love it when a project comes out that way?
To finish off the tree, I added a red burlap bow and coordinating homespun ornament I found at a local craft store, for 50% off!
