DIY Fall Wreath

I have not taken any of my fall decorations out of the closet.  I saw this post by Joi at Nuestra Vida Dulce, who made this yarn and felt wreath tutorial, and knew just what I was going to do. Having the day off was perfect for some projects. 

I decided to go with burlap to change things up a bit. I bought a yard and cut long strips of the burlap.

I wrapped the burlap around the wreath and glued it down as I went.

I made the flowers and glued them to the wreath.

I tied a thick brown yarn to the top of the wreath.  The lighting here is terrible. This whole getting dark at 5:30 p.m. does not work for me.

Here it is hanging on my front door.

I absolutely love it.  My sister is also making one.  I'll be working on another wreath this weekend.  I'm loving this new hobby/blog of mine.

That looks fantastic! Seriously, I can see that hanging on the door at Anthropologie. Love the burlap mixed with the feminine flowers. Nice job!
