DIY Burlap Ribbon Fall Wreath

Friday, September 20, 2013

September has been an exciting month for me... in August I was chosen to be a Fall DIY Contributor for Ginger Snap Crafts. My post was published last week and I couldn't have been more thrilled about it! So this tutorial was orginally written for and featured on that blog, but I wanted to share it with my own readers as well. It might be my favorite wreath ever... I adore it too much not to share it here with you all! Happy Friday, lovelies!



Is it just me or does it feel like Fall is taking FOREVER to get here this year?! I have actually had this wreath ready to go since the first of August, but the hubby refused to let me hang it until the first week of September. Don't get me wrong... I love Summer, but Fall decor is my absolute favorite (other than Christmas)!

 

This wreath was super simple and affordable. I started out with a plain straw wreath form that I purchased at Hobby Lobby for $3.00. Since I have a thing for wrapping my wreaths with fabric ever since I made THIS one for 4th of July I wrapped my Fall wreath with some beautiful burlap ribbon that had an orange and brown detail sewn into it (also purchased at Hobby Lobby). The ribbon was on sale and cost $3. Lastly I glued on a couple of floral accents, cut a mini banner with my Cricut, and strung it to the wreath with baker's twine. The floral pieces cost about $4.00 which puts the grand total at $10.00. You CANNOT buy a wreath for that price! That is so worth the 20 minutes it took me to make it.

  1. That is great. I don't go in for really elaborate, glittery things (ok, except maybe at Christmas), so I could totally see this wreath on my door!

  3. What a good idea! I use florists wire wreaths for rag wreaths and now I can make wrapped wreaths without having to pad the wire!
