It’s finally Fall and along with seeing pretty foliage, you may be seeing Fall door wreaths everywhere. Adding a Fall wreath to your door, is such a simple way to dress up the front of your home and get into the Autumn season. But what’s really nice about this burlap wreath is that it’s super easy to make and a lot more affordable than buying one in a store.
That’s why today I want to share this easy burlap door wreath tutorial with step by step pictures to show you how to make your wreath in about a half hour. I want you be able to say, “yeah, I made this” and look like a creative rock star! All of the supplies for this wreath I found at Micheal’s Crafts, but places like Hobby Lobby, Amazon.com and Jo-Ann Fabrics also have a nice selection of wreath making supplies. So, if you’re looking for a quick craft project that even the kids can help with, try this easy burlap Fall door wreath.
Materials needed to make this wreath:
1 – 12″ Metal wreath frame
1 – Roll of burlap (4″ wide)
1 9 ft. Roll of ribbon (1-1/2″ wide)
1 Bunch of Fall flower picks
Pipe cleaners (about 8)
1 – Safety pin
Cut 6 pipe cleaners in half and secure them to the top and bottom of each cross-bar on the metal wreath frame.
Unravel the burlap. Starting at the outer part of the frame, puff it up a bit so that it loosely fits over each frame section and anchor it to the frame with the pipe cleaners. When you complete going around the outside of the frame, repeat going around the inner part of the frame and anchoring the burlap with the pipe cleaners.
It should look like the photo below. If you need to adjust the burlap to make the puffs consistent, just loosen up the pipe cleaners and adjust the burlap.
Next, wind the ribbon around the wreath, making sure to cover the sections where the pipe cleaner is securing the burlap, then secure the back of the ribbon with a safety pin.
Take your flower picks and separate them from the bunch, by pulling them apart. For this wreath, I’m only using half the bunch, but you can use more if you like.
Once you have the flowers stems where you want them, flip the wreath over and secure the stems to the back of the metal frame with pipe cleaners.
The flower picks will need additional anchoring from the front, so take jewelry wire, (because it’s very transparent), and loop it through the front sections of the flowers and secure it in the back by twisting.
Lastly, take the remainder of the ribbon and tie a bow between the flower picks. You could add additional ribbon or make a double bow, if you have extra ribbon.
That’s it! Your beautiful Fall door wreath is ready to hang up. This wreath is so pretty and easy to make, you may want to make two and give one away.
