Fall Burlap Wreath – Easy Craft

This is another gorgeous day in the south. Sunny, perfect temperature of 70’s and I am out on the front porch enjoying the weather and listening to the birds create a symphony seems like just for me. I love all the trees that we have because they offer shelter for the birds, squirrels and chipmunks that live here. More leaves are falling, mostly due to the dry weather and we desperately need rain in this part of the south.

I want to show you one of my recent projects. I know you are saying another burlap wreath but this one is so simple. I wanted a simple wreath that I could put up in early October and leave up until the end of the year. (I like to keep things simple.)

I got the wreath form from Wal-Mart (maybe $4??). I already had the burlap ribbon and the berries came from Michaels (last year). I took one of the berry candle rings and separated some of it to use on the wreath. Just take the foam form and wrap the burlap ribbon around the wreath. I overlapped the ribbon to get the look I wanted. Then I took a straight pin and secured the end of the ribbon (you can use a hot-glue gun). I made the bow and attached with a piece of jute twine. I hung the wreath over my fireplace on a mirror using some of the ribbon. I then placed the string of berries through the burlap ribbon. TaDa!!!

I love this look for fall because it is simple and you can also use the wreath for Christmas just by changing the berries out and/or adding some different ribbon to the bow. I think I will change out the berries and use mistletoe for the Christmas season. Simple, simple, simple. That’s the way to go. See pic of my wreath below.
