Chevron Burlap Fall Wreath

3 Materials
30 Minutes
I love burlap and chevron so when I saw this burlap ribbon, I "needed" it! I've had it for a while, but used very little of it on the last project it was used on, which you can see here.

This wreath has had a few different looks so far, but I'm finally happy with how it looks now.
All the little floral picks, pumpkins, leaves and pine cones that you see on the left of the wreath came from Dollar General.  They added up to about $5.
I bought the straw wreath form at Goodwill several years ago for $2.  I added the orange tulle to it using the "push into the straw" method.  I was planning on making a jack-o-lantern face with it, but didn't care for how the tulle application turned out.  It then sat in my holiday decor closet for another few years until this year when I spotted it way in the back.  I pulled it out.
I grabbed my floral goodies that I got at the dollar store and hot glued them to the sad looking wreath.  NOPE! I still didn't like all!
One week later, I decided to try and salvage this big ole wreath and make it look pretty again.  So, I pulled almost all of the tulle out of the wreath form.  I only left a small amount of it on either side of the floral grouping.
Off to my decor closet I went because I knew I had this burlap ribbon in there somewhere.  Its pretty wide, so I rolled a bit out (I counted out four rows of chevron) and cut a piece off.  I folded that in half and cut it again.  I then folded those pieces in half again and cut those.  The smallest pieces is what I used to finish out my wreath.
I just found center of my ribbon piece and pushed it into the wreath form until I liked how it looked.

Visit our blog to see the no glue method I used to add the burlap ribbon. Its so easy!
I really made this wreath to hang on my front door, but its so huge that the door won't shut all the way, so now its hanging in the living room and I love looking at it.

Do you make a new wreath for every season or holiday?  If so, what's your favorite kind to make?
