I am ready for fall! I have been trying to find some time to make this wreath since the beginning of summer and wanted to make it a summer wreath with shells (bought a bunch at a gift shop) but just didn't have the time. So this past weekend, it was raining on Labor Day so I began making it and ran out of burlap. Off to Michael's so that I could finish it. I used a 12 inch wire ring, and 2 rolls of burlap. On the back of the wreath, you can see that I secured it with tan pipe cleaners. Some of the blogs I read used floral wire but I wanted it to blend in with the burlap. I am not a fan of orange so I decorated the wreath yesterday with a gold, glittery bow(which I made myself), leaves from Michaels, and bittersweet from AC Moore. I kept the colors red and yellow with a touch of orange. The only instructions are to make loops through the wire wreath and I secured about every 3 loops with the pipe cleaners. You can make it as full or loose as you want. The leaves can be hot glued but I secured the leaves with pins so that I can use the wreath again at Christmas time if I want. I really did like the way it came out. It took me about 2 hours to make it altogether. Check below for more close up pictures. I have found so many great ideas off pinterest. I don't know what I would do without it now.
