Spring is just around the corner. Hallelujah! This spring Rustic Farmhouse Welcome Wreath is the perfect way to say hello to warmer weather and sunny days. I love the farmhouse style decor that is so popular right now. I find the modern country charm calling my name. Farmhouse decor is an eclectic mix of rusticness, warmth, traditional and chic styles. It’s simple and clean style focuses on a neutral color palette but can easily have a splash of bold color mixed in.
I find a lot of people intimidated when it comes to making your own wreath or even crafting in general. Today’s post is going to take the stress out of all of that so you can make this farmhouse wreath all on your own. Thanks to The Ribbon Roll, I was able to choose some pretty spring ribbon to use for this wreath.
The Ribbon Roll is an online retail store that offers over 15,000 different styles of ribbon. Yes, you read that correctly, 15,000 different styles. This includes a wide variety of satin, sheer, holiday and wired ribbon. For this craft project, I choose a wired-edge black and white check ribbon pattern which is so common in Farmhouse-style decor. To add a touch of spring, I used a yellow and bumblebee patterned ribbon as accents.
Another note. I decided to wrap pieces of burlap around a wreath ring as the base. If you don’t want to do this step, you can use a grapevine wreath instead. Easy peasy swap-out!
What Do I Need To Make Rustic Farmhouse Welcome Wreath?

2 1/2″ Wire Edge Yellow Ribbon
2 1/2 Wire Edge Bumblebee Ribbon

How Do I Make a Burlap Farmhouse Wreath??
If you are wrapping a wreath ring, start by anchoring the burlap with some craft wire to the back of the wreath. Flip the ring over and pull the burlap through the center of the ring. It should look like a fluffy ruffle.
After each pull through, wrap the wire around each time. When you have finished looping the burlap around the wreath. Trim off any excess and secure with wire, tightly securing to the back.
If you are using a grapevine wreath to start, then you can skip the step above.
The next step is to make a large bow with the black and white check ribbon. Make one loop about eight inches long. Repeat this step four times. You will have a seven-loop bow.
Fold the ribbon in half and cut a small slit in the center. Tightly wrap the craft wire around to secure. Now, pull out each loop of the bow and fluff. The wire-edged ribbon makes it really easy to work with.
Repeat the same process using the yellow ribbon to make a small 4-inch diameter bow, except make a three-loops instead of seven.
Attach the small yellow bow to the center of the large ribbon. Wire the bow tightly on the side of the wreath.
Once you have completed wiring the burlap onto the wreath, now you can start adding some pretty white flowers for a fresh farmhouse look. I decided to give this wreath an asymmetrical look and only glue the flowers onto one side. If you want, you can certainly amp up your creativity and glue flowers all the way around the wreath.
Make a few small single loops with the butterfly ribbon. Use the wire to close the look and tuck each one to fill in the wreath. There is no science to this, just place them where you think it needs to be filled in.
Attach the welcome sign to each side of the wreath. I secured the sign with wire.
