I’ve had my neon flower wreath on the front door for far too long now! Its October for heaven’s sake! Neon Pink isn’t exactly a fall color πŸ™‚ So before I get CRAZY busy with market and shop stuff, I decided it was time for a new wreath, a painted burlap flower fall wreath to be exact πŸ™‚

Pretty sure this is one of the best wreaths I’ve made. I’m very much in love with it! πŸ˜€

It was nice to whip out the glue gun and go to town… it had been way too long since I was creative for fun… not for the shop and this was so good for my soul!

Here’s how I made it…

I got a “grapevine” wreath from walmart. It was less than 5 bucks.
Then I wrapped about a third of the wreath with “Gold” red heart yarn. Around and around and around. Slightly time consuming and definitely boring.
Once the wreath was wrapped, I got out my burlap, glue gun and paints.

I knew that I wanted a mix of flower styles and colors. There are 2 basic styles of fabric flowers used – rolled rosette and petal roses. Rolled rosettes are pretty simple. Roll, glue, roll some more and there are lots of tutorials for this style. For the petal roses, I cut 3 petal templates (small, medium and large), traced the templates onto the burlap and then cut out 20 to 30 petals in each size. Using 3 inches of jute string folded in half as the stem, glue one of the small petals completely around to start the flower center. Glue and wrap and glue some more gradually going up in size. Again, there are tutorials out there for this style of fabric flower and they’re pretty simple. You’ll get hot glue all over your fingers though, so not recommended as a project for children.

Once the flowers were made I mixed up some red and yellow PLAID acrylic paints to get the mix of colors I wanted. For the petal roses, separate the petals, place the petal you’re painting against a covered surface and paint starting at the base and working out. Have fun.. it’s not complicated and the results are worth the mess!

    That's gorgeous! Thanks for sharing how you did it- I hear wreaths are easy, but I lack the chutzpah to try making one myself. Instead, I'll just admire how you did yours, and how easy you made it sound. πŸ™‚

    We may or may not have a Halloween wreath on the door by this weekend… someone keeps getting distracted from finishing it. And for once I don't mean me.

    very pretty and so creative. LOVE it

  13. Ashley says:

    I like the wreath. I don't think I'd have the patience to cut all of the petals though. Nice work.

    • JenniferJayne13 says:

      It actually didn't take as long as you might think. Burlap is thick, but you can still cut through 2 or 3 layers at a time πŸ™‚ Its the itchiness that got to me first lol

  14. Melissa says:

    I love your Painted Burlap Flower Fall Wreath!!! I want it! I have a pretty wreath my front door but not compared to yours πŸ™‚

    • JenniferJayne13 says:

      Thanks! My hubby is not a fan of wreaths in general, but he's learning to live with them πŸ™‚ Maybe when I'm done with this one you can have it for next fall πŸ™‚

  15. brett says:

    Painted burlap- NEVER occurred to me. But it adds a whole new layer of awesome to those flowers. Also I was all upset because when I attempt grapevine wreaths, they don't ever not once look nice like yours. A bit relieved to see you bought yours. Great job on this- I adore it.

    • JenniferJayne13 says:

      I've never tried a grapevine wreath before and I was definitely nervous! I try to only buy crafty things like wreaths that I know I can get at least 2 versions of… hoping to turn this into a Christmas wreath soon πŸ™‚
