fall wreath

It’s feeling a lot like fall around here. It was 101 disgusting degrees two days ago and today it’s a perfect 65! I don’t even know how that’s possible – but, it’s crisp outside and I decided it was time for a new wreath!
I picked up a grapevine wreath at Hobby Lobby a few weeks ago when they were half off. Then, I grabbed some burlap out of the stash and got to work.
I went with the twisted fabric flower I’ve been seeing around everywhere.
Here’s how I did it.
First cut the fabric into long strips (the longer the strip the larger the flower).

Second, tie a knot on one end. This will be the center of the flower.

Then twist and glue.
Twisting the fabric and securing it with glue about every half inch or so as you wrap it around.
When you get to the end of the material, fold about 1/2 inch of the burlap under the flower and glue it to the back. Done.


I added some buttons and rhinestones to the middles and then glued them to the wreath.
I like the look of the bling with the natural grapevine and burlap. Adds a little unexpected interest.

I’m so glad fall is here! It’s my FAVORITE!!!
