Fast and Easy Fall Wreath

I have always wanted to have a cute wreath to hang on our front door during fall, but I’m honestly really frugal and for some reason it never crossed my mind to make one until this year. I had the burlap and flowers on hand already so all I had to pick up was the wreath. The entire project took me 30 minutes and cost me $2.50.  Suh-weet deal, right?!? Keep reading for all of the details so you can make your own!

 Materials:

wreath * 1/3 yd. burlap * assorted silk flowers * hot glue

1. Cut {6} 2″ x 12″ strips, {2} 2.5″ x 18″ strips, and {1} 1.5″ x 18″strip.

 2. Taking one of the 6 2″ x 12″ strips, fold it in half. Take the front end and slide it to the back so it resembles the second picture.

 3. Run a line of hot glue along the inside bottom edge of the burlap to keep the two sides together. Repeat this with the other 5 pieces.

 4. Start glueing down the burlap folds to create a good base for the flowers. Make sure that you use enough glue so that your burlap is solidly stuck to your wreath.

 5. Cut the plastic nubs off the back of the silk flowers and glue them in place. I laid my flowers out before I glued them down so that I knew what I wanted it to look like.

 6. Now we’re going to move to the top of the wreath. Taking the two 2.5″ x 18″ pieces, lay one horizontal touching the top of the wreath and the other will be tied vertically around the horizontal piece and the wreath.

 7. Trim the ends off of the tied piece. Use the remaining strip of burlap and tie a bow. Glue the bow to the tied piece. Sew the two ends of the horizontal burlap strip together to finish the loop for hanging your wreath. If I’m being 100% honest, I ran out of time to sew and stapled mine together; stapling works too. :)

Your wreath is now ready for hanging and if you’re lucky like me, you might also get some cuties watching you too. If you decided to make this wreath, I’d love for you to share pictures. It’s so fun to see the different spin every one puts on an idea. :)
