What you will need:

Before you begin putting together your wreath, you will have to make your burlap rosettes.

How to make burlap rosettes:

First, you will need to cut your burlap. In order to cut a straight line, I pull a string out about 2 inches from the edge.

Then, I cut a strip of burlap along the line where the string was pulled out. Obviously the longer the strip the bigger your rosette will be – I think mine was about a foot and 1/2 long.

Next, fold the strip of burlap in half as shown.

Fold one end over and glue in place. This will be the pretty center of your rosette.

Then start to roll, continuing to twist the strip as you go. You can roll loosely and then tightly to get a variation in your “petals”. Just play around until you get the look you’re going for.

I have seen some tutorials where they glue as they go. I wait until the end in case you want to start over and try again.

Keep twisting and rolling until you’re left with a little tail at the end.

Flip your rosette over, place some glue in the center and glue your tail down.

Finally, glue a pearl in the center.

Repeat the process until you have as many burlap rosettes as you need. (Or more than you need because you never know when you may need a cute lil burlap rosette!;)
