Fall Burlap Wreath Tutorial

The transition from summer to fall is one of my favorite times of year!  I love the weather, food and especially the decor!  I wanted to add a little color to our mantel and thought a wreath would be the perfect way to do it.  Wreaths can get pretty expensive, but I was able to make this wreath for under $15!


Here is how I made my Fall Burlap Wreath:

14″ styrofoam wreath form
2 yards burlap

fall-burlap-wreath-wrappedCut a 2″ strip of burlap and wrap it around your wreath.  You can hold it in place by periodically inserting a pin or a drop of hot glue.

burlap squaresCut burlap into 3-inch squares.

diy-fall-burlap-wreath-foldingFold each square in half, then in half again, place a pin in it and attach it to your wreath.  Repeat.  Over and over.  Until your fingers hurt.  Haha!  Not really!

diy-fall-burlap-wreath-attachKeep pinning folded burlap squares to your wreath until the entire front and sides of your wreath are covered! (I left the back plain because no one will see it!)

DIY-Fall-Burlap-WreathI found this darling burlap ribbon with lace at Hobby Lobby, tied it in a bow and attached it to the front of the wreath!

That’s it!
