It's the year for this:
All my friends are turning 30, so ThatGuy and I have been partying it up 1980-81 style all year long! I had so much fun making the purple rosette and burlap wreath, I decided to make a fall themed one for my friend's present. (sidenote: turning 30 means being excited about home decor presents as opposed to receiving Barbies or issues of Seventeen magazines).
Here's the fall wreath!
Its like the Wreath is trying to say something! What's that, Wreath?
Oh! Happy fall to you too! What a friendly Wreath.
Supplies to make Happy Fall Wreath:
burlap strips (about 1/4 yard)
Step 1: Wrap strips of burlap around the foam wreath, securing with hot glue.
Cut out triangles for the banner and letters to spell Happy Fall. I used my awesome Silhouette for this.
Glue letters onto triangles and let dry. Glue to a piece of twine and then wrap twine around the wreath. Hot glue in place.
The wreath still needed something... so I added some mini pinwheels! I made pinwheels using burlap, fall fabric and fusible interfacing. Check out this post to learn how to make pinwheels.
I just used a straight pin to attach the pinwheels to the wreath, I needed to cover up the yellow head. I simply tied a knot of fabric, snipped off the ends and hot glued the knot to the pin.
Using the same technique as in the rosette wreath, add a strip of burlap and fabric to make a decorative holder.
Tada! Feel good that your wreath is welcoming in the best season of the year!
