How To Create an Easy Fall Wreath Using Coffee Bean Sacks

Here’s how to make an easy coffee sack fall wreath!

I am so excited to show you how to make this DIY Coffee sack wreath. I have a  big collection of them. I am in love with the texture and the organic look of these sacks.  In this tutorial, I will show you how to make a wreath from strips of coffee bean sacks. If you don’t have coffee bean sacks you can use a burlap ribbon.

Things you will need for your coffee sack wreath:

  • Coffee bean sack or burlap
  • Foram wreath
  • Glue gun
  • Ribbon

Tip: When you find a coffee bean sack, make sure you wash them first with soap and water. Don’t put in the dryer because the burlap will shrink. Just let the burlap dry outside for the day

Step 1: Cover the foam wreath

Prior to making this wreath I just finished making a clutch bag from a coffee bean sack. I had some leftover burlap which is what coffee bean sacks are made from. I cut enough wide strips to cover a full-size wreath. Wrap the wreath over and over until it covers the foam completely. If you don’t have any coffee bean sacks you can use burlap from a fabric store.

Step 2: Cutting strips for the wreath.

Cut a bunch of strips about 6 inches long. Once you have enough strips that you feel will cover the tip of the entire wreath you are set to go to the next step to form rings for the wreath.

Step 3: Forming the rings.

The key to making this wreath is the way you form the strips to get a  full look. You have to form ringlets all over the wreath. Start by creating a circle with the 6-inch wreath and glue it on the wreath

Step 4: Covering all spaces.

Add the ringlets anywhere you like covering the entire wreath. Make sure there are no spaces needing to be filled.

Step 5: Adding a bow

I used some black and white wide ribbon to make a bow. It’s very easy to make the bow. You can see it here how it’s done.

    Perfect for Fall! Where do you find your coffee bean sacks?

    1. Thanks, I found them at different places like thrift stores, EBAY, years of accumulation.

  3. Love it! I don’t have coffee sacks but I do have a stash of popcorn sacks made from burlap; I have to try this!

  4. I love the rustic style and textures! Perfect for Fall. Thank you for the inspiration Maria.

  5. Such a pretty wreath! Love the curl like bows for texture. Looks great on your door too.

  6. If you have to buy burlap material to cover the form…do you still need to wash it….??
    I don’t have access to bean bags ..thank you

    1. No you don’t need to wash, I have been making lots of things like purses and pillows so suggested to wash. This is leftover for wreath. Thanks

  7. It’s a wreath, it’s burlap and it’s PERFECT! I think what makes this wreath so nice is the simplicity of the fabric and design ~ I especially love the “curled” burlap strips which gives the wreath dimension and texture, and definitely a pretty alternative to the usual Fall foliage. [Your instructions are excellent!]

    Thank you very much for sharing!

  8. I would have left it with just the burlap wrapped around and added the bow. I’m not fond of the frilly burlap that was added. I’m very picky though and I’m sure most people would like it your way better. I’m excited to make one for myself now!
