Hi Friends, I’;m Toni from Small Home Soul and today I’;m excited to be here for my first ever guest post. I’;m sending a big thank you to Kim for this opportunity to share my creative side with you all today. I’;m going to show you how I made my first ever DIY Fall Wreath. It’;s a bunch of firsts for me today ??

I bet my neighbors think I’;m rushing Fall a bit since it’;s still pretty warm here in Northern California. But I’;m usually a last-minute seasonal decorator so it’;s nice to be ahead of the curve for a change. School hasn’;t even started for the kids in our area and Halloween stuff is already in the stores. So I think I’;m good ?? ? ? ?

To make your own Burlap DIY Fall Wreath you’;ll need the following:

Start with your burlap ribbon at a bit of an angle since you’;ll be wrapping it around the wreath form. Hot glue the end of the ribbon to the wreath form and secure it with a few pins to ensure it’;s stays put as you begin wrapping. I used a high heat glue gun this time and it took forever for the glue to dry. I’;m impatient, thus the pins.

If there are gaps in the ribbon as you wrap just fold them over on the back side of the wreath and keep wrapping. This will keep the front looking smooth. You can see a folds few in the pic below.

My ribbon came in 15′; rolls and one wasn’;t quite long enough. I cut off the ribbon that wouldn’;t loop around one more time and glued it down on the back. I continued with the second role until the wreath form was fully covered. It took approx 18′; to cover the wreath form.

When the wreath form was fully covered I moved on to the leaves. Using the wire cutters I clipped each stem from the bunch. I left them long until I was ready to attach them to my wreath.

Each stem had two or three bunches of leaves. I pushed each bunch up almost to the end and left a little space between each leaf bunch. After cutting the stem about 1/2″; from the bottom leaf I glued it to the burlap.

I worked first from left to rightgifts for grandma, and then right to left until I met in the middle. The stems were glued to about 1/3 of the wreath circle.

To close up the middle I kept two leaf sets aside with longer stems. This created a pick that I pushed through the burlap and into the straw; I secured them with a dab of hot glue.

Lastly, I added a decorative bow and hung my new Fall wreath on my front door.

I’;m ready for Fall, even if the neighbors think it’;s a bit too early ??

I hope you like my first every?Fall wreath!

This Ruffle Christmas Tree skirt?makes me happy.1. Cut a 44″ diameter circle from a large piece of felt, fleece, or wool. An old blanket would work well but you can also use a sheet in a pinch. To draw a circle, pin one end of a string to the center of the fabric and tie a marker to the other end (22″ out.) With string stretched to the max, draw your circle.
