As you know, fall is right around the corner and it happens to be my favorite season of the year.  I love everything about it!  I love how Pumpkin Spice Latte comes back at Starbucks; Bath and Body Works sells the Autumn candle; and how I start getting the butterflies in my stomach just thinking of baking & DIY projects.  Need I say more?  I thought I would ease into the whole DIY thing with something I know I can handle.  As I was looking for inspiration on Pinterest – I came across this beautiful wreath.  At first, I was thinking of purchasing a wreath to save time.  The more I thought about it – I couldn’t justify spending $80 on something I could do myself.  For a lot less.  I know it looks totally Halloween right now with the orange and black color scheme.  My plan is to change the bow to something like a chevron print ribbon for Thanksgiving.  You see where I’m going with this?

Let’s get started!  Here are all the tools you will need:

I started cutting the burlap into long pieces like this:


Then, I cut the long pieces into thirds to make them shorter pieces like this:

I have to admit, your fingers will get raw and feel like they can’t move after a while of tying the burlap.  I ended up taking breaks and going back and doing a little bit more…..on and on.  I also put an old throw blanket on the table to catch all of the burlap fall out.  As there was a lot of fall out and it got everywhere.  Don’t worry – it was nothing your trusty vacuum can’t handle.  All in all, each wreath took an hour or so to complete.  The ending result is so rewarding though.

TIP:  Set yourself up in a comfortable area & watch your favorite T.V. show.  This will help pass the time, and by the time you know it – you’ll be DONE.


I used the deco mesh ribbon in black to tie a bow.  This was super easy.  I attached the bow to the wreath with a safety pin that was totally unnoticeable.


I felt that this project was fun and very easy to make.  I spent a total of $27 at JoAnn Fabrics.  This price was so much better to digest than spending $160 ($80 x 2).  I hope this inspires you to start thinking of your DIY projects for the fall.  I’d love to hear all about your projects.  Is fall your favorite season too?
