Now that I have this spiffy new door the first project I wanted to do was make a wreath for it. I wanted a wreath that I could change out for the holidays because who has space for wreaths for every holiday?
I definitely thought I would be able to whip this up like it was nothing and have a wreath made in 30 minutes. And maybe I could now but it wasn’t easy to start with. Would I do it again? Yes, actually I made this wreath 3 times before getting it the way I wanted it.
It helps to have a video tutorial and I used this one while I made this wreath. Then later I found this one and this one. Like I said, I wanted to be able to change it out for the holidays so I didn’t want to use wire or pipe cleaner. There are other tutorials that use pipe cleaner and wire to secure it better.
I added ribbon with fall colors in between tufts. The ribbon is simply pulled through so I can easily pull it out and add a different color ribbon. after doing this 3 times it didn’t phase me when I ran out of ribbon toward the end. I left it that way because I planned on adding a few fall branches to it.
I picked up the fall branches at the Dollar Tree a while back and I normally just use them to change out silk floral arrangements in the fall. The chevron burlap ribbon is from the Target $1-$3 section.Love that place! And guess what? It’s not tied in a bow! I just pulled it through the wire frame like the fall ribbon! The wire frame was picked up from Hobby Lobby. This is the second largest wire frame and I would suggest going down a size. It will use less burlap to cover it and it will look more full.
