Tutorial: fall wreath

It is officially fall now. Finally. I am so happy summer has passed and winter is coming.

To celebrate, I made a fall wreath to hang on our front door. I love the combo of leaves, burlap, and glitter. An odd combination really, but it works.

Here’s a little rundown on how to make one of your own.

Gather your supplies. You will need:

-a wreath
-fake leaves (I bought one of those garlands on sale for $4.99 and cut the leaves off of it)
-burlap cut into 2″x6″ strips
-hot glue
-a monogram covered in glitter (chipboard monogram from Hobby Lobby, glitter by Martha Stewart)

Start by making your burlap strips into loops by hot gluing the ends together.

Start layering your pieces on, starting from the outside and working in.

Once you get to the middle, make a little background for the monogram to sit on. I did this by gluing three burlap loops together and placing the monogram on top.

That’s it. It was easy, cheap, and quick to make. I made one for me and one for my sister (which is why you see an “M” and a “B”).

Is it too early to be thinking about Christmas wreaths? Yes? Yes. Ok.
