Hey guys! I feel like it’s been a while since I’ve done a proper blog post. I have been so busy traveling and trying to get back into my usual schedule. In the spirit of fall approaching, I thought I would share this DIY Fall Wreath with y’all!
This is my first time creating a wreath but it is honestly so easy and fun. Anyone could easily achieve this! And since it is so customizable, it would be so fun to create one for every season or as a gift for someone.
For this wreath, I was inspired by a Tannermann video I recently watched! (Click here to watch it)
This is the video I watched to learn how to do the bow (Click here).
Supplies you will need to make the wreath:
- Hot glue gun
- Wire cutters
- A plain wreath (you can buy them at Michaels)
- Any floral arrangments you like
- Any extra add-ons (pumpkins, acorns, leaves etc.)
- 1 (6″) burlap ribbon
- 1 (12″) burlap ribbon
- 2 (16″) burlap ribbon
- Floral wire
Figure out a general idea of what you want your wreath to look like. I did this by cutting off the flowers I liked and placing them on the wreath (don’t glue it yet).
After you’ve got a general idea, go ahead and start gluing them onto the wreath. In the video I watched, she recommended putting the glue onto the flowers directly rather than onto the wreath. You will need to hold each piece down to be sure they are secure.
To make the Burlap Bow, measure out all burlap ribbon pieces you will need. Grab the 12″ piece and place glue on one end of the ribbon and attach the other side to create a circular piece. Do the same exact thing with one of the 16″ pieces.
Place the 12″ circle piece you just glued on top of the 16″ circular piece. Use the floral wire to gather the 2 together in the center. Like a bow!
Take your other 16″ piece and attach the middle of it to the middle of the bow with more floral wire.
Fold the smallest piece (6″) in half and wrap it around the center of the bow to hide the floral wire. Use the hot glue to secure it together.
Glue the bow onto the wreath where you would like it.
And voila you have a burlap bow!
I know this blog post was extremely easy but I never thought of making my own wreath like this. I hope it inspired you guys to get creative and make things! If you guys have any questions feel free to leave a comment.
Thank you for checking out this blog post! Happy crafting 🙂
