Fall Wreath

My Fall Wreath.
I rarely ever use wreaths. It is just to windy here in Vegas. It always bangs on the door and we end up taking it down.
But all the wonderful wreaths you all have been making lately made me want to make one of my own.

I guess I will have to find a way to secure it so it won't bang
because this is way to cute to keep inside!

I started with a grapevine wreath from Walmart for $3.00.

I got three colors of felt and three colors of burlap cut at Joann's. I only got 1/4 Yard of each so it was really inexpensive.

I cut my burlap into strips and sewed them together to make one long strip. Then I did a ruffle. I did it by hand, not using the longest stitch on your machine. I tried to but burlap is just too difficult to gather.

I looped it around the wreath and secured it down.

Then I made lots of felt flowers. All different kinds and techniques.

I also made a little pumpkin out of my orange burlap. I cut a circle, hand stitched a gather stitch with ribbon around the circumference, stuffed it with pillow fluff and pulled it closed. I added a felt stump in the top.

I like it! Perfect for Fall.
