Every season, I search high and low for a new wreath for my door. You see, I just cannot stand the look of a plain white door. BORING! I feel like a pretty, happy wreath offers a welcoming approach to my door. Even though I may not get any visitors at all at my doorstep, it welcomes ME home and that is what matters.I have found most wreaths that I truly love to be a bit out of my budget. So, since I like to be crafty, I started to make my own. Here is a quick tutorial on how to make your own DIY Fall Wreath.
- Burlap or Deco Mesh your choice- About 10 yards
- Wreath hoop
- Decorative seasonal picks
- Hot glue & glue gun or straight pins
I bought everything at Jo-Ann Fabrics for a total of $13.01. I was lucky to have the kids with me because honestly, I could not decide on a theme for my wreath. I knew I wanted a fall wreath, but there were so many different options of flowers, pumpkins and more that I couldn’t wrap my head around it. The kids quickly picked out the cute scarecrow and then it was easy peasy to match a flower with it.
- Glue or pin your burlap or mesh in place.
- Start to wrap around the wreath until there is no more foam showing through. You will want to pull your material taught so that it is flush against the wreath.
- Add a dab or glue or a pin to hold the final end of the mesh or burlap into place. Cut the end.
- Pin or glue your decorative seasonal picks into place.
- Wrap a few more pieces of mesh or burlap around the bottom of the picks and secure on both ends with glue or a pin.
We hope you have enjoyed our Fall Holiday Craftacular Blog Hop! Be sure to come back on October 12th for our Halloween Blog Hop!
