I’m pretty sure I opened up my post about Easy Chicken Taco Crockpot recipe the exact same way. But hey, at least Fall knows it owns my heart. At least until summer finally appears after a long Alaskan winter.
Fall always brings out the creative in me. I just want to create pumpkin recipes and make fun decor for my house, like this gorgeous Fall wreath! Can you believe it cost less than $15 to make? I bought ALL of the products at the Dollar Store except for the wire wreath, which was only $3 and some change at Wal-Mart.
What you’ll need:
Burlap (2 small rolls covered less than half of my wreath)
6 small artificial pumpkins ($1/each at Dollar Tree)
Hot glue gun
When I first looked at other burlap wreath tutorials I thought, “no way can I do that”. But please believe me when I tell you, if I can do it – you can do it! It was honestly pretty easy to make.
First, tie your burlap into the inner ring of your wire wreath.
Next, loop the burlap through each wired section. Pull the burlap out to bubble to your liking. Then twist the burlap to secure it’s spot before pulling through another section of the wire wreath. Cover about 1/2 of your wreath with the burlap bubbles. Tie burlap to wreath to secure the bubbles upon finishing.
I bought four separate artificial branches of leaves. These were smaller and only a dollar each. The particular kind I bought I was able to separate into two leaves each. I then wove these through the wire to my liking. I wove about three sets of two leaves under each pumpkin. I would make sure that I liked how the leaves were wrapping around each pumpkin before hot gluing the pumpkin on top of the leaves. I continued this the entire way through the remaining bare wire wreath.
I then used the left over leaves I had to accent the burlap. I wrapped it in the wire again and then hot glued it to the wreath.
Ta-Da! Look at this beauty! It makes my heart warm with pumpkin spice thoughts every time I walk into my front door.
