We love to come up with creative wreath ideas for you to decorate your home with. If you explore our site, you’ll find lots of paper wreaths featuring different flowers and botanicals. But we also like to experiment with softer textures—like when we made this macrame wreath. Today we are trying something new out and showing you how to make a braided rope wreath.
Our braided rope wreath is very simple to make and perfect for any skill level. If you’re a member of our crafting community, you can download the tutorial below. There are just six steps to follow, but if you have any questions, please let us know!
After crafting our braided rope wreath, we styled it with our own crepe paper palm fronds. If you like the idea of adding some greenery to your wreath, you can make these fronds and secure them to the back of your wreath. We have another craft idea coming up soon for what you can add to this wreath, so stay tuned!

How to Make a Braided Rope Wreath
- Gather the craft tools and materials listed above for this wreath.
- Cut six pieces of cotton rope four feet in length each.
- Use a rubber band to hold one end of the ropes together. Section into three groups of two ropes each; then braid the three groups together.
- Glue the braid to the gold hoop using hot glue; then glue over the hoop onto the rope in a zigzag pattern for a stronger hold.

Hello! Do you have a math formula for the braided rope if you use a bigger hoop? This is very pretty, but want to put my own spin on it with tropical style flowers made of crepe.
Lol! I am laughing because MATH is not my jam. I am a good guesser. 😉
These are so gorgeous.
I love this idea for a wreath!
It is one of my favorites!
