YAY! Aren’t you guys so super excite for fall?! I know I am, I love love love fall! So I got a head start on this fall fabric wreath for our front door. I really love how it turned out and I hope you do too!
This is really super easy, I think it might be the easiest wreath I’ve made yet! I got the idea for the circle part of the wreath itself from awesome blogger Made in a Day’s Spring Duck Cloth Wreath. I totally swooned over hers when I first saw it and knew I had to make one for myself!
1 yard fabric
branch type fake flowers
Styrofoam flat ring
Take the fabric pattern side down on a flat surface. Place the ring in the center of the fabric. Place a smaller circle inside.
Mark around the small circle in the middle with a marker. Mark around the outer large circle about 4 inched from the ring all the way around. Cut this out.
Measure and cut a piece of the fabric and glue inside the wreath’s circle. This will help cover up the ring during the next step.
Place the ring back on the fabric and making slits in the center circle to the base of the ring all the way around. Hot glue gun these pieces to the ring.
Now, do the same on the outside, cutting the slit all the way around. This time pull the fabric tight so it forms to the ring shape.
The fabric will over lap a little with each additional piece, this is exactly right. When you are done you might have some excess fabric, trim off any excess so the back looks like this:
The front looks like this:
Take your branches and place them on the ring. Using these pins I found (I forget the name, I’m so sorry! They were at the store by the sewing supplies, I’m sure you can find them easily.) I used them to secure the branches to the ring.
Cut off the excess stems with the wire cutter. Place a piece of burlap around the place where the branches meet and hot glue that to the back of the ring. Place a strip of ribbon in the center of the burlap and hot glue that as well.
Hot glue the bow of your choice on the front.
Place the ornament on the wreath holder first, then place the wreath on the holder. And that’s it!
I love how it came out so much, it really brightens up our doorway!
I hope you enjoyed this tutorial! What are you looking forward to most this fall?!
