Create a Beautiful Fall Burlap Wreath

Try out this quick and fun fall wreath

by Craftbits (shellie wilson)

Using supplies like burlap and cardboard that you might already have at home. Perfect for Thanksgiving decoration as well!

What you need

1) Cardboard
2) Styrofoam
3) Cardstock
4) Craft glue
5) Scissor and x-acto knife
6) Burlap fabric
7) Dry leaves

Instructions

Step-1: Make the base ring for the wreath out of cardboard and styrofoam. We’re using styrofoam to make the ring thick and cardboard to make the ring firm. I kept the base ring square with round borders.

Step-2: Cut a long strip of burlap fabric, long enough to wrap the base ring. You can add string later if needed. Start wrapping the burlap string from any one bar of the square base ring. You can apply glue if you want to but I didn’t. Keep wrapping the burlap strip neatly around all sides. At the end apply glue to keep the strip secure. Cut off extra burlap threads if needed.

Step-3: Prepare items for decoration. I used cardstock to make different kinds of flowers. Also collected dry leaves and then painted them golden. Start to glue the items on the wreath. Try to keep a sound combination of the items, do not fill the entire wreath with items. Add the dry leaves and sticks between the flowers. Attach a hanging mechanism to complete the wreath.
