DIY Fall Wreath Tutorial

 
Pumpkin spice latte is back at Starbucks, the leaves are starting to change color, and it is time to change the wreath on my door. I came across this beautiful wreath by Home Sweet Ruby. I just loved the wheat and big bow combo, but I wanted to put my own touch to this fall wreath so, this is what I came up with.

I got all my supplies at Hobby Lobby and with tax everything cost $8.63

What you'll need:
Plain wreath - $2.99 w/ 40% off coupon
White burlap - $1.99 for 1/2 yard of burlap
Wheat - $2.99 on sale
White felt - owned (Hobby Lobby)
Scrapbook letters - owned (Target)
String - owned (Hobby Lobby)
Hot glue gun - owned (Hobby Lobby)
Floral wire - owned (Jo-ann)

Via



 Cut 3 pieces of burlap, fold the ends towards the middle and glue.-- I eyeballed about how big I wanted my bow to be.

 Take the largest piece of burlap and neatly scrunch in the middle creating a bow

 Secure with a string.

 Do the same to the medium size piece of burlap. Take the smallest piece and wrap around both bows with hot glue.

 As for the wreath, determine where you want your bow to be and start gluing the wheat working upwards in layers.

 Once you have all your wheat glued on the wreath, attach the bow with floral wire. 

 Last but not least you need to create the banner. Take your felt sheet and cut little triangles out, glue onto a string, and spell out your word with scrapbook letters.


 I'm really happy with how it turned out! My favorite part about it is the big bow and the banner.


Here is last year's fall wreath.
