fall ruffle wreath tutorial

Pin It

i love wreaths.  have you noticed? :)  a friend of mine wanted me to make her a fall wreath, so i set out to find one that suited her style.  i chose burlap, but this wreath could be made with any type of fabric. 

here are the supplies you'll need:
burlap/fabric- i used about a yard and a half and my wreath form was 18". 
pool noodle/foam wreath form
duct tape
hot glue gun
needle and thread
flowers/ribbon/feathers (something to decorate the wreath)

step one: cut the burlap into 9 long strips.  i cut mine 5 inches wide.

step two: cut the pool noodle to the size you'd like your wreath to be.  i made mine the same size as an 18" wreath form.

step three:  form the pool noodle into a circle and duct tape the ends together (if using a noodle).

step four: use 4 strips of burlap/fabric to cover the form and secure with hot glue

step five: with the remaining five burlap/fabric strips, weave your needle and thread in and out (as if you're sewing), on one of the long sides.  bunch the burlap/fabric to creat a ruffle.  knot your thread to secure it.

step five: glue three ruffle strips around the back of the wreath form.

step six: glue two ruffle strips around the front of the wreath form.

step seven: decorate to your liking! :)

i love it.  simple, fallish and definitely southern chic.  what does your front door look like this season?
