I made my first fall wreath a couple weeks back ( you can view it here ) and I seriously couldn’t wait to make another one! For the price, you really can’t beat playing around and using your creativity! This project cost me a whopping $5! I love it!!
Here’s what you’re going to need:
- 12 inch grapevine wreath
- Glue gun, glue
- Flowers, or Fall leaves
- Pumpkins ( or preferred decor )
- Burlap for bow ( this wasn’t included in my cost because I already had it )
Again, my grapevine wreath and all flowers I used were from DollarTree! The orange pumpkins came from Michaels, $1 for a 2 pack. For your flowers, simply pull the flower heads off of the stems and set aside. It’s always a good idea to play around with what you want your design to look like before you begin gluing things into place. Once you’re satisfied, begin gluing your flower pieces in the middle of the wreath and work outward. This will ensure your work from being crooked! Remember, you can add as little, or as much as you want! Use your creativity and have fun 🙂 Once everything is glued into place, it’s time to make your bow! I used ivory burlap for mine. Start by cutting three 2 inch sections of burlap ( or fabric ). With the first piece, tie a knot in the center, keeping the middle loose. Fold the ends into the middle and glue into place. Grab your additional two pieces of burlap and glue the ends together ( forming a loop ). Grab the center of the burlap, fold and glue into place; do this for the remaining piece as well. Make an “X” with those two pieces and put the bow ( the first piece you made ) in the center and glue.
There you have it! It’s honestly, that, simple! You can create wreathes like it’s going out of style now 😉 Give them as gifts, etc!
