I absolutely love fall/autumn. I am captivated by the colors of the leaves and the floral blooms. My front door is pretty drab and I wanted to dress it up a bit with a fall inspired wreath. This tutorial will show you my "fall-inspiration" in action.
I bought a straw wreath form from my local craft store.
I wrapped the wreath in this pretty wire ribbon that is reminiscent of burlap with a lace center. I then poked holes in the in between parts of straw where I wanted to put my flowers.
I cut off the majority of the sunflower stem to make it about 2-3 inches. I covered the stem in hot glue with my glue gun and put them in the holes I made previously. I put the large sunflower in the middle and the smaller sunflowers one on each side. I like things to be symmetrical but your wreath doesn't have to be if you prefer it not to be. I found these gorgeous fall colored leaves with berry clusters and filled in the gaps between the sunflowers. I placed the leaves first to see how I liked the look before I glued them down with my hot glue gun.
This is my finished wreath and my front door looks fresh and ready to celebrate my favorite season. I really wanted to put a bow at the top but I ran out of ribbon. If you want to put a bow on your wreath make sure you buy an extra spool of ribbon. Happy Crafting!
