Farmhouse Style Jute Webbing Ornament

Yesterday I promised to share how I’ve used my mini wreaths in various Christmas projects. Here’s an ornament with some farmhouse charm.

Mini Wreath and Jute Webbing Christmas ornamentPieces of jute webbing have filled my workbench for several weeks as I’ve been working on “CHEERS” Christmas banners.

As I began making more and more wreaths, they naturally became jumbled together one day and I realized that they looked pretty good together.

An ornament was born.

It’s actually amazing sometimes that anything at all is “born” in my work room.

I should be embarrassed, but I’m not (LOL). I’ve finally accepted that this is just the way I create. When it’s time to work, I clear a space and get down to business. In between, spaces sometimes get a little–ahem–cluttered. But let’s get back to our project…

Then you want to get your hands on some yummy, 3.5″ jute webbing. Upholsterers use this for the seats and backs of chairs and sofas. I lucked out and purchased a whole roll at a garage sale at a good price. It’s a pretty easy little craft, but I think it has a great farmhouse appeal. Follow these steps and you’re good to go.

So, for example, the cut at the top, if made along the grain of the jute, will not fray because the weave is so tight.

Same with the frayed end; you won’t continually loose more strands of the jute. You decide how long you want it to be and then it stays in place.

Use them on packages, your tree, or around the neck of a nice bottle of wine.

  5. Those ARE the cutest little wreaths I’ve ever seen, Diana! I think even I could get it together to make some. Thanks for the idea!

  6. These are adorable; love that webbing, but I prefer the black:) Totally envious of your photoshop skills…been working on it.

  7. So cute Diana! I love that jute webbing and use it often. It’s perfect for Christmas! Thanks for sharing with SYC.

  8. Oh I so totally love those little wreaths! Thank you for sharing with us at the To Grandma’s House we go link party, hope to see you when the new one starts tomorrow 🙂

  9. I love the wreathes; have the pine; I may use ribbon with ends folded under until I find the jute! I LOVE your workspace; reminiscent of MY kitchen table when it’s in action! Have to shuffle to find room for 2 dinner plates! And New Year’s resolutions last for about 2 projects! Great bazaar idea!

  10. I love this ornament. Started to make one but got stopped in my tracks when it came to punching a hole in the top. What kind of hole puncher did you use? None of the two I have are strong enough to punch through. I need some help here. Thank you for an answer.

    1. Maybe your hole punches aren’t sharp enough? I’m not sure why they’re not working–I just used a regular old hole punch that I use for all my crafts. Maybe try a new one Rosalie?
