I love decorating for fall; I think the colors are just gorgeous! I made a super cute burlap wreath for our front door this year and decorated it with faux flowers and a burlap bow, and it only took a few minutes to put together. If you want to learn how to make your own burlap wreath with a fall theme, the tutorial is below!
DIY Burlap Wreath With Fall Flowers
- 10 minutes (time spent doing stuff)
- 0 minutes (time spent waiting around)
- 10 minutes (total project time)
- faux flowers and faux bushes (I found mine at Michaels)
- foam wreath form
- plain burlap ribbon
- patterned burlap ribbon for bow
I made a quick video showing you how to put this cute wreath together; check it out! If you prefer to read, I have put step by step instructions below the video.
Start by wrapping your foam wreath form with your plain burlap ribbon. Stick a few greening pins into the end of the ribbon to attach it to the wreath form, then wrap the form until it is covered in burlap. When you get to the end, cut the burlap ribbon (if you have extra) and use greening pins to attach the end to the wreath form.
NOTE: The great part about using a foam wreath form and greening pins for projects like this is that it is all totally removable and reusable later! You can remove the fall flowers and decorations and update the wreath for winter in a few months!
Use wire cutters to cut apart your faux flowers into smaller sections. Then use greening pins to attach the flowers to the wreath. For these faux hydrangeas, I made “rows” using two of each different color of flower. I pinned one flower towards the inside of the wreath and the second flower exactly opposite, towards the outside of the wreath. After you pin one row of flowers, pin your second row so that the flowers cover up the stems and greening pins from the previous row.
You can cover the whole wreath if you want to, but I decided just to do a small section to allow the burlap to show on most of the wreath.
I added two faux “bushes” at the bottom with the stems crisscrossed. Once your larger decorations are attached to the wreath, fill in any bare spots by pinning a few extra flowers onto the wreath.
If you want to finish off your wreath with a bow, check out this video showing you how to make a burlap bow in a few minutes!
Add greening pins to the back of the bow and then fasten it to your wreath. And you’re done!
I really can’t wait to get rid of this silly glass storm door and have an actual front door on our house! We’re making progress on that project; you can read all about our curb appeal makeover here!
