First Things First. Here’s What You’ll Need:

12-inch Wire Wreath Frame

25 feet of 6-inch Burlap Ribbon

Fall Accent Pieces (*see below)

Hot Glue Gun & Glue Sticks

Floral Wire & Scissors

Wreath Hanger

*When choosing your accents, might I suggest…

all available at Hobby Lobby

With Me Still? Alrighty, Then. Time To Make It:

  1. Attach the end section of Burlap Ribbon to the most central opening of the Wreath Frame, using Floral Wire.
  2. Thread approximately 3 inches of burlap through this part of the frame, then continue threading it through the frame’s other two openings.
  3. Turn the frame over and and twist the burlap 2-3 times, then thread it back through the frame’s most central opening.
  4. Repeat steps 2-3 with the frame’s additional openings until the entire wreath is covered with burlap ribbon.
  5. Cut off left-over burlap and attach its other end to the wreath frame, using floral wire (If you’re confused, I recommend watching this video tutorial before making any attempts).

  6. Heat up the Glue Gun and, while you’re waiting, arrange the Accent Pieces in a desired pattern, leaving approximately 2 inches between every individual cluster.
  7. Glue each accent onto the burlap and push them down for 30 seconds to ensure the glue adheres.
  8. Lay the wreath on a stable surface until the glue has dried completely, then display it on your front door, using a Wreath Hanger, so the neighbors swoon with envy!
