I’ve been wanting to make a fall wreath for the front door for ages. But since it’s stash busting September, I couldn’t just go out and buy a wreath. I had to get creative…
I love the look of this ruffle wreath by Days of Chalk and Chocolate
This burlap wreath from Life made Interesting is adorable!
So with some inspiration in mind I set to work. I took some sturdy cardboard (from the back of a package of scrap paper) took a smaller bowl for a template for the center and a larger mixing bowl for the outer circle.
I had some sage colored burlap from a project I worked on a while ago so I cut it in to 8 inch long and 3.5 inch wide strips.
Next I pinned in 3 pleats.
Once the pleats were sewn down I used a glue gun to attach the ruffles to the cardboard wreath. I layered them about an inch apart and glues the edges underneath.
With a few fabric rosettes to finish it off its practically perfect.
I can’t wait to put this bit of loveliness on the front door in the morning 🙂
The wreath is on my door and looking fabulous 🙂
