I finally finished my fall wreath that I have been planning to do for weeks now. I bought a roll of burlap back in the summer with intentions of getting a head start on my fall decorating, but that didn't happen. I have seen so many beautiful burlap wreaths on Pinterest, and I wanted to add one to my fall decor.
Here is the roll of burlap that I purchased at Michael's.
I cut strips of burlap about about the width of the inside of the wreath.
. Next, I folded the ends together and wrapped with floral wire.
The photo below is kind of scary looking, but I wanted to make sure I had my burlap flowers evenly placed around the wreath. Sorry the photos were taken inside, but I had to finish this last night.
Once I had the burlap "flowers" placed on the way I liked them, I filled in the outside edges with burlap. The photo below shows the outside filled in. I also took a few straight pins and pinned down the rough edges of the burlap to give it a smoother look.
Here's a quick little tip.....if you are trying to decide if you want to use rosettes or flowers, toilet tissue makes super fast, beautiful rosettes! :) I quickly made these and stuck them on the wreath to see if I wanted to use rosettes. I do love the white flowers with the burlap, so when spring rolls around all I have to do is change the flowers. Well, make real fabric rosettes that is!
Here is the wreath after I decided to use fall flowers instead of rosettes. This morning I took this photo, but decided it still needed some color.
Here is the finished wreath. I weaved some dark red ribbon through the wreath and stuck a few pieces of fall ribbon in the wreath. I also moved my berry spray to the top.
This was a super easy wreath to make, but this burlap is sure rough on the fingers. It would be better to spread it over a few days instead of one night. I just pinned my flowers on the wreath, so it can be changed seasonally.
I thank you so much for stopping by for a visit. I always love hearing from you! Happy Fall, y'all!!
