Easiest Ever(!) Fall Wreath

No sewing, no hot glue. Not even a pin! Make this easy fall wreath with just burlap ribbon, leaves, and a wreath form.
Start with a 14" wreath form, and at least 22 feet of ribbon (3-4" wide.)
Leave about 2 feet of tail on the ribbon. Start wrapping the ribbon around the wreath form.
Overlap each layer of the ribbon by about 1/2 inch or so.
Tuck a leaf in when you wrap each layer. Be sure to wrap each layer of ribbon tightly so your leaves don't fall out!
When you get back to where you started, tie the ends together tightly in a single knot.
You can add any embellishments you'd like, then tie a bow. I tied on this cute metal "W" (for our last name) with a piece of jute string.
That's it! You could easily change out your leaves for other seasonal items, but this one is perfect right now for Fall.

    Love your wreath, was wondering where you got your metal "W" ? I just happened to pick up a wreath form a few months ago and wanted to do something different with it but i wanted to add in leaves somehow, lol, but was going to go with the same ole route of hot gluing and now you have given me the solution to updating into the 21st century ! I am loving copper this year, so i am going to paint my leaves copper and i think the metal tag would be perfect ending ! Thanks for inspiration !

      Yes, it was Hobby Lobby. I didn't specify that in the post because it was a while ago so I didn't know if you could still get them. But apparently you can!

    Where did you get the metal initial?

    .I was even thriftier and tore stripes from quilting fabrics that were in my "stash". Or use old stained tablecloth to tear the stripes. Some fabrics are so colorful that the leaves are not needed
