It’s late August and I don’t know about you, but I am already itchin’ for fall. It’s my absolute favorite season so I am always eager to start displaying fall decorations.
I have been drooling over the burlap wreaths on Pinterest. I decided why not try and make one. Can’t be too hard, right?
After about 30 minutes this is what I created:
Honestly, this is one of the easiest wreaths I have ever made. I saw a tutorial for a similar looking burlap wreath that had like six steps. I tried with all my heart to follow that sweet lady’s directions and it just wasn’t making any sense to me. I think she was making it too complicated. To make this wreath all you need is two motions: push through and fluff. That’s it! Let me show you what I mean.
First, you need to gather your three supplies: a wire floral wreath, a roll of burlap (mine was 20 feet) and your pretty filler. I chose some sparkly leaves for fall.
Simply take the end of the burlap and secure it around an inside wire. Then it’s time for the “push through” step. Take the burlap and push it up from from the back through the wire spacing.
Once you have some burlap through the wires, gently do the next step “fluff”. And yes, “fluff” is a very technical term! 🙂 That’s just my way of saying shape the burlap into a little bow.
Those are all the steps, you just repeat as needed until you make your way around the wreath. It took me a total of about 20 minutes. Then I just took my leaves and poked them through the burlap. Super simple.
I think the hardest part of this wreath is going to be deciding if I like it on the front door or the wall. Decisions, decisions. 🙂
So what do you think? Have you ever tried to make a burlap wreath? You should, it’s almost too easy! And I must ask, door or wall? 🙂
