Happy Fall Y’all! Oh, how I have been longing to say that for months now. I am Kelsey from Poofy Cheeks and I am so excited to be taking part in the burlap series Maryann is hosting. I am sharing a really simple and elegant burlap fall wreath. Believe it or not I whipped this baby up in no time and bought most of the supplies during a trip to Walmart.
I live in Florida with my husband and four kids. It is still in the (GAH!) 90s here and just a few minutes outdoors has you working up a sweat, longing to go back into the air conditioned indoors. I haven’t started sipping warm lattes or baking quite yet but I hope to start soon.
I am going to give you a quick rundown on the supplies you need and how to make your own fall wreath.
Supplies Needed for a Simple Fall Wreath-
White styrofoam wreath form
1 roll of burlap (I used bleached burlap)
Pumpkin wreath picks
Gold Acrylic Paint
Bouquet of fake flowers
Hot glue gun
Old book page or printable book page
Step 1: Secure the edge of the burlap to the back of the white wreath form with a few dabs of hot glue and wrap the entire wreath. Cut the burlap and use more hot glue to secure the end to the back of the wreath. I use a white wreath form so that the green color doesn’t show through the burlap.
Step 2: Use Mod Podge to decoupage an old bookpage to a chipboard shape and once dried use a craft knife to trim the edges.
Step 3: Get out the gold paint and paint ‘Happy Fall’ onto the chipboard tag and paint one of the pumpkins.
Step 4: Use a glue gun to secure the pumpkins, fake flowers and tag to the wreath form.
Step 5: Tie a ribbon onto the chipboard tag and another long piece of ribbon around the wreath to hang it from.
See I told you it was a simple wreath! You can change up the colors to go along with your own personal style or change the fall colors to black and orange for a Halloween wreath. I wanted to hang my wreath on the front door so I gave the chipboard tag a good coating of Mod Podge to help product it from the outdoor moisture. Now bring on the Pumpkin Spice and everything NICE!
Here is something you should know about me – I am a work from home mom and I love finding things for a steal since most projects I do are on a budget. The book page I used was from a $0.05 book I picked up at a garage sale. I could give you a tour of my home and most everything would be from a garage sale, thrift store, clearance section or it was a DIY project. Most people would never know that is how we decorate our home so I take pride in each item and how we use our décor.
I hope you will stop over and see me at Poofy Cheeks. I have been doing my own share of fall and Halloween crafting with tutorials (like this canning ring pumpkin and this glam gold pumpkin).
