I feel like I must be one of the last bloggers to make my own Fall wreath. You see, I'm not super crafty. But when my cheap-o one from last year fell apart, I started on my hunt for a new wreath. I just could not find one that I liked in my price range.
So, I headed off to Hobby Lobby with coupons in my purse and started picking out faux branches. I already had burlap ribbon at home plus I've had the Mackenzie Child ribbon for several years and hadn't quite found the perfect project for it... until now!
Here are all of the materials I used:
1 grapevine wreath
Fall leave sprigs (enough to go around the wreath)
Wire and Wire Cutters
When I started, I just picked one spot and started to place the leaf sprigs into the wreath. I secured it by wrapping the wire around it.
Then I added the gourds and other Fall sprigs around the wreath until I liked it.
Next came the hard part: making the bow. I struggled making this bow. I searched for a good tutorial and this one by Susie Harris is the one I ended up following. My Mom and I both made it together... you needed about four hands to hold it all! We secured the Mackenzie Childs ribbon on top with hot glue.
And Voila! Here is the finished project! I think it looks pretty nice! I like it better than anything I saw in the stores and I especially love the black and white courtly check ribbon! I wish I had bought the 2" Mackenzie Child ribbon too! I used the 1" ribbon.
Here is my image for pinning!!
I have been busy pinning away on my Fall Pinterest board.
