I wanted to make something fun for spring to go on my door and this easy DIY farmhouse wreath turned out to be the perfect fit! We loved the way it looks on my door and the touch of farmhouse charm it brings to the porch.
I thought it would also look good on the wall next to this Repurposed Scrabble Tiles Word Wall Art.
It goes so well with pretty much any brick, too, so even though my house is red, well, it will go with brown brick, too. The key is the burlap and chicken wire. So flexible. Pun intended.
All joking aside, this is the perfect wreath you can rely on for pretty much any spring, summer or early fall wreath. I mean, I’m still going to put out my pumpkin orange and buffalo check, but you know, for those times when those aren’t out…this wreath works beautifully.
That’s what I mean about flexibility.
This beautiful wreath is just perfect. you can even use it in your house as part of your entryway decor or even your dining room. Though, I do generally try to keep the wreaths to the door, for the most part. LOL!
Now, let’s get down to the brass tacks–or, well, the burlap and chicken wire.
Ok. So, making an easy DIY farmhouse wreath is, well, easy. Most of the supplies can be found at your local dollar store or craft store. So, that’s no sweat.
What you really want to think about is the paint color. I chose turquoise because, again, I felt like it was the most flexible color, in my opinion, but if all of your farmhouse themed decor is red-based, maybe you want to go with red, whatever works for you really.

Everything else can pretty much stay the same. Because really there’s nothing else that needs to change. Browns and whites and blacks go with everything.
So, pick your paint color and it’s all just farmhouse fresh from there. LOL!

See? This is going to be so easy. As I said, everything came from either the local dollar store here or the craft store, so you can find it near you or online, even.
Before you go drive to the store to pick up your burlap ribbon, though, be sure to pin it so you can find it again quickly. And once you’re done making your wreath, be sure to drop me a comment and let me know how it turned out!
I love how easy this DIY farmhouse wreath is to put together! Its the perfect way to add a little farmhouse charm to my porch.
- Foam brush
- Wire cutters
- Hot glue gun
- Paint the wood banner turquoise and set aside to dry completely.
- Remove the wooden sing from the metal sign, removing the tacks and trimming flat.
- Hot glue the beginning of the burlap ribbon to the wreath and wrap it around tightly until you've covered the entire wreath form.
- Hot glue the end of the burlap ribbon in place.
- Wrap the top third of the burlap covered wreath form with the chicken wire, locking it in place using a piece of floral wire, if necessary.
- When the wood banner piece is completely dry, use the black paint and dry brush the edges and center lightly to make it look worn.
- Glue the metal Farm Sweet Farm sign sign to the center of the wood banner piece and hot glue the tacks in the corners of the metal sign.
- Glue the banner to the wreath just below the chicken wire, kind of off-center of the wreath proper.
- Make your buffalo check and burlap-and-lace bows by folding over the buffalo check ribbon in 6-inch lengths 6 times and the burlap-and-lace ribbon in 5-inch lengths 6 times.
- With the ribbons still folded, fold them again to find the center. Cut two small snips in the center of each side of the ribbon, but do not cut all the way through.
- Wrap a floral wire around the ribbons at the snipped centers and pull tightly.
- Fluff the ribbons as desired.
- Cut 2 4-inch and 2 6-inch pieces of ribbon as tails and hot glue them to the back of the bow.
- Attach the bow to the front of the wreath using the floral wire tails used to hold together the bow center.
- Hot glue 3 small roses on each side of the sign.
