Happy Fall Wreath!

I transformed my “Happy Spring Wreath” into a “Happy Fall Wreath” today after doing some crafting/gift-making last night with friends AS and SV.

Supplies (for Spring Wreath):
1. Twig wreath ($4.99)
2. 1 bunch of greenery ($5 or so)
3. Glue gun
4. Wire cutters
5. Short length of ribbon

Additional supplies (for fall flowers):

1. Two colors of burlap.  (1/2 a yard is much more than enough, and burlap was on sale at Jo-Ann’s yesterday!)
2. Craft Paint
3. Buttons
4. Floral Wire (I got either 16 or 18 gauge, but I’d get the next size up to have a thinner wire)

I followed this tutorial to make all three kinds of roses, but I found the 2nd and 3rd MUCH easier to make than the first (hence, no burlap roses in my wreath yet): http://www.snugasabugbaby.com/how-to-make-a-burlap-flower-bouquet/

Instead of making a bouquet, I added the flowers to my wreath.  I also wrapped a bit of twine around the whole wreath, but it doesn’t stand out very well.  I may add something else to tone down the greenery later.

Here was my (very simple) spring wreath:


And here it is now spruced up for fall:

  1. Nice! In the next month of so you can add live branches or other greenery to get some Christmas smell as you walk thru the door!
