DIY Faux Wicker Wreath

This tutorial shows you how to make faux or fake wicker wreaths using cotton rope.

What you need

4 inch wire wreath form (I got mine at Dollar Tree)

Cotton Clothesline (I got mine at Walmart)

Hot Glue Gun

Wire Cutters

Dollar Tree Yellow Poppy flowers (Dollar Tree)

Bunch of faux babies breath flowers (I got mine from Walmart but Michaels and Dollar tree often have them)



This DIY Faux Wicker Wreath tutorial is a great way to add a rustic touch to your home decor. By using a simple wire wreath form and cotton clothesline, you can create a beautiful wreath that looks just like real wicker, but at a fraction of the cost. The best part about this craft is that it’s easy to customize with your own choice of flowers and colors.

First, you’ll need to gather your supplies. The wire wreath form can be found at most craft stores or dollar stores. The cotton clothesline can be found at Walmart or any home improvement store. You’ll also need a hot glue gun and wire cutters.

Next, you’ll want to start wrapping the cotton clothesline around the wire wreath form. Use the hot glue gun to secure the end of the rope in place, and continue wrapping until the entire wreath form is covered. You can use the wire cutters to trim off any excess rope if needed.

Once the wreath form is covered, you can start adding your flowers. The yellow poppy flowers and baby breath flowers are great options for this wreath, but you can use any type of flowers that you prefer. Simply use the hot glue gun to attach the flowers to the wreath form, making sure to cover any gaps or bare spots.

When you’re finished, the wreath will have a rustic, farmhouse look that can be hung on a door or mantel. This DIY Faux Wicker Wreath is a perfect way to add a touch of country charm to your home decor without breaking the bank. It’s easy to make, and you can customize it to match your own personal style. Give it a try and see how easy and fun it is to make your own wreath at home!


Take the end of the clothesline and begin weaving it through the metal rings of the wreath form. I went under and over then looped around on the inside or the outside and back through.

Complete this all the way around the entire wreath using the entire clothesline.

At both ends of the clothesline using the hot glue gun, glue down the ends on the underside of the wreath so that it doesn’t show with just some dabs of glue.

Next take several branches of the baby’s breath, bunch them together and then lay on the open space and using the hot glue gun, glue the stems to the wire section. I did two bunches of the baby’s breath on either side.

I then popped the flowers off of the stems and added some hot glue to the bottom of the flower around where the stem is and made sure that the section I glued attached to the wire section (I used 5 poppy flowers)
