I have always loved the look of farmhouse decor – even before it became popular. I also like wreaths. They make such easy decor and can be made to fit any decor style you want. They do look especially great with farmhouse decor though. This easy farmhouse wreath is just one example of that.
This particular farmhouse wreath uses supplies that can be purchased at Dollar Tree, Amazon or Hobby Lobby. That is another reason I truly adore farmhouse decor; it doesn’t have to be expensive.
Easy Farmhouse Wreath
The great thing about it is that it can truly be customized to look however you want using whatever supplies you can find.
In other words, while you may not be able to find the exact supplies we’ve used here, you can use our own farmhouse wreath as a guide and then use whichever supplies you can find to create your own wreath.
It is, after all, your home; decorate it as you will.
How to Make a Simple Farmhouse Wreath
Since these supplies can be bought at multiple locations, I will link you to them – or a close alternative – at each location. Just look for the store name beside the item and click the link for whichever site you would like to visit.
Even if you aren’t planning to shop online for them, visiting them on the website will do two things; it will allow you to check the price point of the item so you can plan for total cost. It will also let you search for a replacement item if you don’t like the one I’ve found.

To start, use the turquoise paint to paint the wood banner and set it aside to dry. Then, if your metal sign is attached to anything, you’ll need to pry it off to remove it and trim it down using the wire cutters.
Next you’ll be wrapping the burlap tightly around the wreath form. You’ll want to use a dab of hot glue where you start the wrap and where you end it to hold it into place.
After you have the wreath form wrapped, take the black paint and dry brush the black paint around the edges and across the middle of the wood banner to give it a slight barnwood look.
Use the hot glue to attach the metal Farm Sweet Farm sign to the center of wood banner.
If your sign had metal tacks that you removed like ours did, hot glue those back in place as well.
Set the side aside and allow it to dry.
While the wood banner is drying, wrap the chicken wire around the top 1/3 of the wreath form using the hot glue to secure it in place.
Once the banner and sign are fully dry, glue it into place across the center of the wreath.
Set it aside and allow it to dry.
Next, you’ll need to make each of the bows. To create the buffalo check and burlap/lace bows, fold each of the ribbons over six times (separately) for each bow,
The buffalo check ribbon should be folded in lengths of 6”. The burlap ribbon should be folded in lengths of 5”. Leaving the ribbons folded, fold each one in half again to find the center.
Once you’ve found the center, cut two small snips into the center of each side of the ribbon, but do not cut all the way through.
Take a piece of thin wire – approximately 5-6” – and twist it around the center snips of each ribbon. Pull it tightly once you’ve got it twisted.
Separate the bows by grabbing two ends and twisting in the opposite direction.
Once they’re separated, fluff and twist them until you have a look you’re happy with.
Wrap the bow wire around the wreath form to secure into place. Trim the tails of the ribbons straight or on a diagonal edge. It’s your choice how you trim the edge.
To add longer tails to your bow, cut 2 (4”) and 2 (6”) lengths of buffalo check ribbon. Trim the ends of the tails and hot glue to your wreath form, tucked underneath the bows.
Finally, use the hot glue gun to glue the white roses to ythe turquoise wood banner.
Allow it to dry and use a wreath hanger to hang.
This farmhouse wreath also makes an amazing DIY gift idea!
