Fall Favorite #4: A New Wreath on the Door

As I've seen loads of fall wreath ideas floating around in blogland, I decided it was time to make my own.  Forgive my lack of "the process" of making the wreath, but I was experimenting--plus, I had hot glue on my fingers and burlap lint was filling the air!

Here's one shot I captured while in process:



Here's the final product:




It was very simple to make. Here's the basic how-to: 

  • Cut burlap into 3-4 inch wide strips and wrap around a wreath frame, hot gluing as you go around
  • Make little rosettes by cutting fabric into thin strips, gluing one end down (which becomes the center) and twisting it around and around, gluing as you go.  I used felt which was both cheap and easy!
  • Add fall details, like little acorns!
I also linked up at Tatortots and Jello for the weekend wrap-up party!
