Next, we have another burlap wreath idea. This project by Debi's Wreaths and Things involves creating a burlap ruffle wreath with an added second row for fullness. You'll need a 14.5-inch frame, two rolls of 30-ft burlap, and about 4 zip ties.

The technique includes threading the burlap through the frame to create ruffles, and the second row is added for a fuller look. Add bows and embellishments, and your wreath is ready to hang.

Here's a cute fall twist on the traditional wreath! This project by The Crafty Pumpkins involves creating a scarecrow face wreath using a pumpkin wreath frame, burlap sack, black felt, orange felt, raffia, black twine, fall leaves, fall flower, fall ribbon, fall material, foam board, and a hot glue gun.

The burlap is cut and attached to the frame, and black twine is added to mimic pumpkin sections. A scarecrow hat is made from foam board and black felt, and raffia is used for the hair. The facial features are made with black and orange felt, and fall decorations are added to the hat. The final result is a cute and festive scarecrow face wreath.

Faux fall leaves are trimmed and glued inside the hat, along with greenery and ribbon patches. An iridescent white ornament serves as the gnome's nose. Finally, a pipe cleaner is attached to create a hanger. The finished fall gnome wreath is charming and can be customized for different seasons.
