A Fall Wreath

Hello friends,

I bought the goodies to make a new fall wreath at least a month ago.  Finally I threw it together.  Me and my hot glue gun.

The first thing that I did was wrap wide decorative burlap around a straw wreath.  I had two rolls of the burlap.  I wrapped tight and only hot glued at the very end of the wrapping (why chance burning my fingers when everything was staying in place just fine?).

Then I added a roll of thin ribbon around the burlap.  I hot glued it on the back of the wreath every time it looped around.

I attempted to make a bow.  It was the first time and it didn’t turn out so great.  I added another tied bow on top of the bow that I made (along with an orange pumpkin) to try and make the bow look professional.  I think it will take some practice to get better.

I had bought some sunflowers and leaves from Michaels.  I separated them from part of their stems and put them together to make a small bouquet.  I tied it together with a burlap string and then hot glued them (lots of hot glue used) to the wreath.  I hot glued the bow on top of the bouquet.  Finally, I attached a few of the leftover leaves to the wreath.

I love how it turned out.  It really wasn’t very difficult and it started me learning how to make bows.  Win – win.  A splash of festivity to our house!

God bless all of you!

  1. So ready for Thanksgiving. Who would of thought you would want sunflowers on your wreath? ha Cute pumpkin ribbon and fall leaves tumbling down. A big happy sunflower and a baby pumpkin to top it all off. So bright and cheery. A welcome sign on your door to greet family and friends. You sure are getting creative with your bow making techniques.
