Fall Wreath

I'm sharing my Fall Wreath that I recently made!

I started with the Straw Wreath Form that I actually bought at Salvation Army for $3!!
A serious steal!
It's super big which I love, Like 18" across.
 I bought this burlap stuff at Hobby Lobby in the reupholstering section.  I LOVE it so much. The material is thick with red striping in it but it does have some sort of chemical treatment that makes it slightly stinky.

I started wrapping it up. Simple. No instructions there.
Then I just chose my Fall things to dress it up with:
wheat sheaths (found at Hob Lob), red tulle, red Christmas berries, some raffia.
Really whatever you have on hand!


Great tip**  To prevent the wreath hanger from scratching my door, I attached a piece of felt normally used to prevent chairs from scratching wood floors.

This is so pretty! It still says fall but it's more interesting because it's different from fall decor you usually see this time of year.

I like the simplicity of your wreath. Using the wheat is the kicker. Pinning it.

I stumbled across your blog over at the Saturday link up on Be different...Act Normal. I love that burlap ribbon. I keep thinking that I need to take a trip to the local thrift store for a wreath frame or two. Thanks for the inspiration!
