How To make a Sunflower Wreath:


First cut out using your rotary cutter, (you can use scissors but the rotary cutter makes this process more precise and so much easier), 7 – 12″ pieces of green mesh for the leaves.

Take two opposite corners, fold them inward, and then gather in the middle until you form a bow tie looking leaf, flip over and attach to the outward layer of stems on your wreath form.

Once you attach your leaf, pull it together to the outside of the wreath to form it, and don’t be afraid to adjust it. Attach the remaining green leaves this way.

Second, cut 34 pieces of your yellow burlap into 10″ pieces, (I generally cut the whole roll). You will then repeat the process with folding inward the corners and bunching it up to make a bow tie looking petal

You will attach to the outside rim of the wreath over top of the green leaves. This process needs two leaves on top of each other, twisted together.

Continue this process until all of the stems are filled with a double layer of yellow petals.

At this point, look at the wreath and take some of the additional chenille stems to add into some of the bare spots in the wreath.

    I was wanting to make a couple of these, I’m so excited. Questions, about how many centers can I make with 1 roll of 10″ brown Poly Burlap? – Thanks!

  2. Victoria

    Can this be made with an 8″ wire wreath? If so what changes would I make to the size of the burlap?

  3. tammy long

    Is there a red/green version that might look like a poinsetta?

  4. Jeana

    Where did you buy the burlap from?

    1. Julie's Wreath Boutique

      Craftoutlet.com or Trendytree.com, you won’t be able to find poly burlap at your regular craft store.

      1. Jeana

        Thanks! Do you happen to know what color of green and tan you used? The link for the yellow takes me to craft outlet but the others go to Amazon and they aren’t the same size and the green is a different color. Thanks for your help!

  5. Lisa Nelson

    I am a little confused-do I attach the yellow on top of the green so there are three pieces of material in one chenille tie?

    1. Julie's Wreath Boutique

      Yes, the outer rim you will attach the green leaf plus two of the yellow petals on top of the green leaf.

  6. Kathleen Marks

    Love this tutorial! Can you tell me how many yellow and how many beige chenille stems are used, please? Your materials list seems to indicate that the wire form comes with stems already attached, but the Amazon link does not seem to be the case.
    Thanks so much!

    1. Julie's Wreath Boutique

      If you don’t use a wreath form that does not have the stems on it you will need about 15-20 yellow and about 4 brown stems that you will cut in half for the center.

    I bought a wreath like this and now after being on my door for several months it is floppy. What can I do to stiffen it?

    1. Tammy

      I used spray adhesive when I made mine, so I used my hairdryer to heat up each section and straighten them back out. Hope this helps.

  8. Cheryl Miller

    You can get it from craft outlet.com
    I got my order today can’t wait to get started

  9. Ashley

    That is beautiful! Can I ask where you buy your supplies from? I am having trouble finding the kind of burlap you use in that size and colors.

    1. Nicole Reily

      Me too, my mom and I want to make for mothers day but can’t find the burlap

  10. Pene Harrison

    Could I just order a wreath already made? Thank you.
