Fall Wreath

November is here! It is time to take down the Halloween decorations and deck the house out for Fall.
This gorgeous wreath would be great on your front door or inside the house.


What You Need:
  • Styrofoam Wreath Form
  • Burlap (1 yard)
  • Felt in Various Colors for Flowers
  • Hot Glue Gun
  • Fall Picks
  • Ribbon
  • Needle and Thread
  • "Naturally" Covered Floral Wire

Note: I wasn't exactly sure how I was going to design this wreath before I started, so not everything shown in picture was actually used.

How to Make It:


  •  Cut burlap into strips 4-5" wide. Hot glue end of one strip to back of wreath and wrap around form. When you reach end of strip, glue it down. Repeat until entire wreath is covered.
  • Glue one end of covered floral wire to back of wreath and wrap around at a diagonal until you've made it all the way around. Glue other end to wreath. Ribbon can be used instead if you prefer.
  • Make felt flowers: Cut sheet of craft felt into strips about 2" wide. Fold in half lengthwise and sew ends together (lengthwise). Next take scissors and cut slits from top about three quarters of the way down to the seam all the way down the length of the felt (can change the look of the petals by either cutting at a diagonal or straight down). Starting at one end, tightly roll the felt up. Once rolled completely, stick threaded needle all the way through the bottom layers of felt to sew them together.
                             



  • Use hot glue to adhere felt flowers to wreath.



  • Add fall-colored floral pick.
  • Tie coordinating ribbon around top so wreath can be hung.
