How to Make a Super Simple Woven Rope Wreath

Supplies

Materials Simple DIY Woven Rope Wreath Dollar Store, Remodelaholic (1) (1)
  • 14-inch or 18-inch wire wreath form (Dollar Tree)
  • 100 feet of cotton clothesline (1-2 packs of rope from Walmart or a hardware store like Harbor Freight)
  • Hot glue gun and glue sticks
  • Wire cutters or scissors
  • Large flowers: yellow-orange poppies (Dollar Tree)
  • Faux baby’s breath flowers (Walmart, Michaels, or Dollar Tree)

*You’ll need enough flowers to cover the 6-8 inch section of wreath that isn’t covered by the rope *or* a bit more rope to cover the entire wreath.

*You can see part of the form on my wreath, so you can spray paint the wreath form to match the rope before wrapping the wreath if you’d like to cover that little piece of the form better.

Choosing Flowers for the Rope Wreath

You can choose any flowers you’d like for this rope wreath! For a look like mine, you’ll want 2 types of flowers:

  1. an outer layer of smaller flowers or greenery such as baby’s breath, lavender, decorative grasses, lambs ear, etc.
  2. a center section of larger flowers such as poppies, sunflowers, dahlias, mums, etc.

Instructions

Step 1: Weave the Rope into the Wreath Form

Start by taking the end of the clothesline and weaving it through the metal rings of the wreath form, to the outside edge of the form. You may want to wrap the end of the wrap with gift wrapping tape or clear tape to prevent it unraveling as you weave.

Go under and over, then loop around on the inner circle or the outside diameter and back through. Continue a second layer of this process all the way around the wreath until you’ve used the entire clothesline. Keep the next layer of rope together tightly so you don’t see the wire.

I left the gap because that is the section I will cover with flowers. If you’d prefer to have the entire wreath form covered with woven rope, you’ll just need more rope. You can center the flowers at the bottom of the wreath like I did, or you can position the flowers to the side like this Dollar Tree sunflower wreath or fall farmhouse mum wreath.

Step 2: Glue the Rope Ends

Secure both the end of the rope on both sides to the back of the wreath using a hot glue gun. Apply some dabs of glue to ensure they are firmly attached and won’t show.

Step 3: Add the Outer Layer of Flowers

For the second part of the wreath, take several branches of the baby’s breath flowers (or greenery of your choice), bunch them together, and place them on the open space of the wreath.

Using the hot glue gun, glue the stems to the wire section. You can add two bunches of baby’s breath on either side for a balanced look.

Step 4: Add the Center Flowers

Pop the flowers off their stems and apply some hot glue to the bottom of each flower, around where the stem would be.

Ensure that the glued section attaches securely to the wire section. You can use around 5 poppy flowers for a vibrant centerpiece.

Be sure to cover the wire wreath form and the stems from the outer flowers. You can see the black wreath form a little bit, so you could spray paint the frame to match before wrapping with wire if you’d like.

Variations for the Craft

While the basic woven rope wreath is lovely, you can get creative and try different variations to suit your style and the season:

  1. Make it Nautical: After you’ve wrapped the wreath base with rope, add an anchor, seashells, or beachy wood shapes to the top of the wreath for the perfect beachy color addition to a coastal style for a beach house.
  2. Seasonal Swaps: Swap out the types of flowers and colors to match the season. Use bright, pastel flowers for spring, warm and rustic tones for fall, or even add some ornaments for a festive winter wreath.
  3. Natural Elements: Incorporate natural embellishments like pinecones, twigs, or dried leaves to give your wreath a rustic, outdoorsy feel. You can even wrap some twine or ribbon around it for an extra touch.
  4. Monogram or Initials: Add a personal touch by incorporating your family’s initials or a monogram in the middle of the rope wreath. You can craft the letters from cardboard, paint them, and attach them securely. Or make your own farmhouse sign for the wreath!

Common Questions about the Rope Wreath Craft

Can I use a different type of rope for this wreath?

Yes! While cotton clothesline works well for its flexibility, low price, and ease of use, you can experiment with other types of rope like jute or sisal rope for a different texture and look. To fit the spacing of the wire forms, look for rope that is 1/5 or 1/4 inch thick (4 or 5 mm).

If you’d like to make a colorful rope wreath (to match school colors for team spirit, or to match a season) paracord, cotton macrame cord, and polypropylene rope come in many different colors. Many of these are sold in large spools which makes it very inexpensive per foot and gives you lots of leftover rope for other projects!

How long does it take to complete this project?

This rope wreath project can typically be completed in about an hour, depending on your crafting experience and the level of detail you want to add. And how distracted you get by the movie you’re watching 😉

Can I hang this wreath outdoors?

While this wreath is primarily designed for indoor use, you can certainly hang it outdoors in a covered area. However, to ensure its longevity, it’s best to protect it from direct exposure to the elements. The rope will endure the elements just fine, but if you’d like to hang it where it will get direct sunlight or rain/snow, spend a bit more to get UV-resistant faux flowers that are meant for outdoor use.
