Rustic Rose Wreath Directions - How to make a rustic rose wreath

Wrap Your Wreath Form In Burlap
Wrap Your Wreath Form In Burlap

This wreath is easy to create with just a few materials and tools. The steps are simple, and anyone can do this simple arrangement.

Time required: Depends on your experience level

Difficulty: medium

Cost: About $10-$12


  • Straw Wreath Form in the size of your choice
  • Wide Burlap rolls
  • Silk cream roses
  • Silk white roses
  • White daises in different sizes
  • Babies breath
  • Red gingham stretch ribbon- May Arts Is best
  • Glue gun sticks-clear


  • Scissors
  • Glue Gun
  • Floral wire cutter


1. Gather materials and tools. Lay wreath on a plastic craft mat or newspapers

2. Cut flower heads off of all roses with floral wire cutter. Separate leaves and cut them into single leaves. Disgard the stems

3. Remove Plastic cover from the wreath form. With the glue gun, glue one edge of the burlap roll to the back side of the wreath

4. Wrap the burlap tightly around the wreath securing it every so often with a little of the hot glue. Once it is wrapped completely around the wreath form, cut the end and secure it to the back of the wreath form.

5. Cut a small loop of the burlap and secure it to the back of the wreath form to act as a hanger for the wreath

6. Glue the gingham ribbon around the back of the wreath with the glue gun, making an edge to the wreath

7. Starting at the bottom of the wreath, lay out two of the roses opposite to each other. Glue the roses against each other in the center of the wreath. In this case, with two colors, I put one cream against a white flower. The first two flowers were placed upright.

8. Build a "Bouquet " around your center. Vary the roses and the daises and move around the wreath form, layering on your design. Some flowers will be upright and some will be on their sides. Let your eye guide your design. Think about each section of the wreath as a "mini" bouquet, one next to each other. Build your flowers about half way up each side of the wreath

9. As you work in each section of the wreath, place and glue the leaves between the flowers on the bottom

10. Cut little groups of the babies breath and group small "bouquets" together with the hot glue. Fill in the spaces between your flowers using the babies breath as filler

11. At the very top of the wreath, Build a small bouquet using all the flowers. First glue the leaves down. Then place and glue the flowers using three flowers upright and the rest built around them

Rustic Rose Wreath Tip

How To Make A Paper Rustic Rose Wreath

Upcycling an old book into a lovely rustic rose wreath is a perfect way to spend an afternoon crafting. Not only is this project a perfect addition to your home, but it also makes a wonderful gift. You can also add this wreath to a nostalgic wedding theme.

You can leave the roses in their natural paper color. Or you can add some color with acrylic paint thinned down with water. The print will still show through but there will be a touch of color.

You can also edge the flowers with distress inks or ink oxide ink. The brown colors would age the glowers.

Another more sophisticated option would be to add just a tiny touch of glitter to the edge of the flowers.


  • Grapevine wreath form
  • Old book pages
  • Burlap
  • Silk or paper leaves
  • Scissors
  • Hot Glue gun and sticks
  1. Remove the pages from an old book. On average, you will need three pages per flower
  2. Trim off any binding left with the scissors
  3. Fold the pages in half horizontally
  4. Then fold the pages corners to create a triangle shape
  5. Use the scissors to round the edges of the closed shape to create a flower petal
  6. Unfold and set it aside. Do this three times.
  7. Trim one flower off the first flower
  8. Cut two petals off the second flower.
  9. Cut three petals off the third flowers.
  10. Repeat this process 5-6 times
  11. Glue each of the flower petals together with the hot glue gun.
  12. Glue the three pieces of the flower, starting with the largest piece. Then layer each piece gluing it in the center.
  13. Repeat creating as many flowers as you wish.
  14. Glue the leaves to the back of the flowers
  15. Glue the flowers to the wreath
  16. Add any additional elements to your wreath like a bow at the top or a ribbon loop to hang your wreath.

Whenever you are using a glue gun, make sure to have a bowl or cup of water handy in case you get hot glue on your fingers
