Fall Burlap Wreath 2015

How to Make a Fall Burlap Wreath

I am anxious for the official start of fall next week, and I have been busy decorating both the inside and the outside of my house. I love pretty much everything about fall, but especially the deeper, rich colors.

I have been using the same fall wreath on my front door since we moved into this house 4 years ago, and this year I was itching to change it out. I didn’t want to spend a ton of money on a new wreath, so I searched Pinterest for ideas. THIS PIN was the wreath that I decided to use as my inspiration. I am decent at implementation, but coming up with my own ideas is a struggle sometimes! :-)

In my opinion, burlap wreaths are super easy to make, even for non-crafty people like me. You can find a great online tutorial HERE that shows you how to wrap the base of the wreath. My burlap loops tend to be a little tighter than other wreaths that I see online (not on purpose), but it still turns out just fine.

I already had a basic burlap wreath that I made last year that was too large for my taste, so I took a quick trip to Hobby Lobby and picked up a smaller wreath ring. When I couldn’t find pre-made orange flowers, I also grabbed a spool of orange burlap ribbon, and a sprig of fall berries. I would say I have about $15 in this wreath after my 40% off Hobby Lobby Coupon and sales.

After I re-wrapped my burlap on to the smaller wreath ring, I found an online tutorial for rolling my own burlap flowers. (I didn’t have felt, so I just glued my flowers to a piece of the same burlap ribbon.) I did remove the wire from the outside edges of my burlap ribbon. They are attached to the wreath with wire.

As for the berry sprig, I cut the leaves off of the sprig and attached it to the wreath with some wire as well.

From start to finish, I would say this project took me less than an hour – and that was with me unwrapping my old wreath so that I could re-use the brown burlap on this one.

For less than hour of my time and about $15, I now have a beautiful new wreath on my front door that will last through the fall season.
