Happy Sunday, everyone! A few weekends ago I made another simple wreath for my front door to have up during this fall time of year before I replace with something fun for winter/Christmas.
The supplies and cost of making this wreath was really low and it would be another easy DIY for your own front door 🙂 here are the only things you need:
- A wooden wreath ring – I got mine at Micheals for about 6 or 7 dollars
- A large roll of burlap! – I also got this at Michaels for $6
- Greenery or florals of your choice – you can get these supplies anywhere! I got both of my pieces of faux greenery at Target in the saver spot at the front of the store.
- A pair of scissors
A work surface that is easy to clean after all of the burlap shedding!
When choosing your wooden wreath ring, in my opinion thinner is better. That way you can measure and cut shorter pieces of burlap. To begin just trial a piece of cut burlap and then tie around the wreath form. I wanted my pieces to be a little bit longer to create fluffiness and texture, but to each their own!!
I used pieces that were about 8 inches long. Then I also cut each strip in half the long way because the roll of burlap was really wide. You can cut a few pieces at a time and then take a break to tie. That way you only cut as many strips of burlap as you need. For this wreath I used exactly one roll of burlap which was pretty good estimation on my part!
After you’re done tying the burlap in knots all around the circumference of your wreath ring, then you can work to weave in pieces of greenery. There is no right or wrong way to do this step! Add what you think looks good. I bought two different kinds of greenery and both were long garland style which made it much easier to wrap around. I would suggest this style versus loose flowers/stems.
The greenery garland I bought was much longer than I needed to I decided to make a loopy bow out of the ends of mine in the lower middle of the wreath to use all of it rather than continuing to wrap around the wreath. I then hung it on my front door as usual! All year round I keep my gold “home” on the front door attached with command strips to the pane of the windows. I got it in the dollar spot at Targe more than a year ago and it always makes the perfect backdrop for every wreath because there is no place like home 🙂
After your wreath is hung where you want it to be don’t forget to do a healthy amount of “fluffing” in order to get it looking just right. Tightening pieces of burlap, adjusting the greenery, etc. so that it looks just how you want it to!
I have no doubts that I’ll have some fun DIYs to share with you as we get closer to Christmas, so be on the lookout!! As always, thanks so much for reading. Have a wonderful week!
