Dollar Tree Fall Burlap Wreath

Remember my "new" screen door I talked about right here?  Well, for Fall I wanted to hang a little wreath on it to jazz it up a bit, but I didn't have any small Fall wreaths.  I only had large ones.  Let me show you how I made this sweet little Fall burlap wreath for a little less than $10 using supplies you can get at Dollar Tree.
The fun part about this wreath is that I didn't make any of it permanent.  What I mean is, I can take this all apart and change up the florals for any season or holiday.
You will need the following items to re-create my wreath:

1 - 12 inch wire wreath form
1 - roll of burlap 5-1/2" wide
4 - fall colored floral picks
1 - large clip on sunflower
1 - pipe cleaner or floral wire
Scissors

Optional: Hot glue gun and glue sticks - If you wish to make your wreath permanent and not changeable.
STEP 1:  Fold over the raw end of your burlap and tie a small piece of your pipe cleaner to it as if you were tying the twist tie on a bread bag.
STEP 2:  Pick a starting spot on your wreath near the inside edge (on the back of the wreath form) and tie the burlap on using the same method as above.
STEP 3:  Flip the wreath form back over with front facing you and starting at the inside bottom section, push a small portion of the burlap through to form a small loop.
Continue this step for all three sections like this.
STEP 4:  Push all three sections to the left edge up against the cross bar.  Hold firmly and flip the whole wreath form over to the backside.
STEP 5:  While you continue to hold it, make a twist in the burlap like this.
Now flip it back over and repeat steps 3 and 4 again.

NOTE:  I made two ruffles in each section of the wreath form.  If you want to make it look fuller, create three ruffles in each section.
Just keep going repeating the steps until you reach the other side.
When you reach the beginning again, cut your burlap leaving a small tail to tie off again.
Repeat steps 1 and 2 again to finish it off.
Now, using the floral picks of your choice, decorate as you like.  I simply pushed the stem in through the burlap and tucked the tails in under the wire in the back.  Secure with a small piece of pipe cleaner if needed.  Or, if you're making it a permanent non changeable wreath, hot glue everything in place.
I love how it turned out and it was very easy to create.  You could make one of these burlap wreaths for any season or holiday to jazz up your Farmhouse Decorating.  Just have fun with it!
I hung it up on my pantry door using a more narrow piece of burlap ribbon.  I just threaded the ribbon through the top wire of the wreath form, tied a knot and hung it up!

Have you made any fun Fall wreaths this year?

It doesn't have to be done all at once.  It is a slow process in the works! C-ya next time!
