Canvas Dropcloth Wreath

A darling and easy to make Canvas Dropcloth Wreath that’s perfect for indoors or out!

Make this super cute wreath in no time! It’s super easy to make in just an hour or so–I put it together while I watched a favorite movie, which is a win-win in my book! Perfect for a front door, on a mantel, or anywhere you like!

Canvas Dropcloth Wreath


  • canvas drop cloth (I purchased mine at Home Depot–painting section)
  • floral wire wreath, or Styrofoam wreath
  • ribbon or fabric
  • any desired embellishments

Cut the canvas into strips–you’ll want a good stack to start with, but you can always cut more. My strips were 18 inches long, and about 1 1/2 inches wide

Lay one strip across the top of the wreath.

Take the ends and cross them underneath the wreath.

Bring up the ends again, and tie them in a knot. Repeat until the wreath is completely covered.

When the wreath is filled, you will have spaces in between the knots. To fill these spaces, take your strips (same size), and just tie them in regular knots in between each already existing knot. (you won’t be wrapping them around first, just tying them.) They will be longer than the first knots you tied, and this will fill in the wreath and give it some dimension.

When you’re finished, this is what it will look like:

Now you can just have fun with it! One of the things that I love about this wreath, is that it’s so versatile. The color is neutral, so any other color(s) can be paired with it.

The canvas is heavy duty and water resistant, so it’s perfect for hanging on your front door–perfect indoors or out!

Share and save for later!
