Unbelievably Easy Fall Burlap Wreath

6 Materials
30 Minutes
It's almost Fall and I bet if you're in the south you're ready for some cooler weather. Heck, in Northern California it's been so hot here we're enjoying some 80 degree weather finally. And with that cooler weather it means it's time to get some Fall decor going for your front door. Or inside your house, where ever you love to decorate is where it will look best.

Thankfully Fall supplies are already in the stores and this project doesn't take much. I'm not even sure where I found the straw wreath (maybe a garage sale) but I'd had it for a while and last year I finally decided to do something pretty with it. You can get them cheap online, I found a 14" Straw Wreath for under $6 with prime shipping.
I also had a spool of burlap ribbon, because don't creative people just gather all the things and horde (keep) them  I mean, that perfect project is out there just waiting to be made, eventually.
With my handy dandy glue gun I wrapped the burlap around the wreath and secured it. Next to get some Fall foliage happening, otherwise it would just be boring.
I grabbed a bunch of faux fall flowers (say that five times fast) and snipped off the long stems. I love the flower options that are available today. You can get some very realistic flowers that will fit just about any project need you might have or think of.
You can play around with the spacing a bit on your wreath. I wanted them a little off center. Just gather up a few of the stems and poke them down through the burlap and into the wreath. Secure them with some hot glue. I set mine first in one direction and then the other working toward the middle. Then I set the ones in the middle sticking up more.

You can really get creative here. You could cover the entire wreath if you want. Anyway you choose and it will be beautiful. But I wanted some burlap to show. Because without some burlap showing it wouldn't really be a burlap wreath   
After all the flowers are on how you like them you can really doll it up and get creative. Acorn picks, raffia, ribbons, or a bow to top it off will make it uniquely yours.

I am a saver of stuff and I used a length of shimmery ribbon that came on some flowers to hang it. I also used it on the bow. You can find directions to make that beautiful bow on my website here 5 Minute Fancy Bow.
