If you guys hang around even just a little bit, then you know I have a slight obsession with wreaths.
Ok, more like a full-blown obsession.
You can check out my ever-growing collection of them here.
I told myself that I was good on fall wreaths this year and did not need to make anymore.
I failed miserably at that when I made my felt & rosette wreath and even more because I may have made another fall-ish wreath that I still haven't shared yet.
Yup, I'm an addict.
Which brings us to today's post.
Because I made yet another one.
I couldn't help it.
I had an old wreath form basically begging to be made over.
And I found the cutest ribbon when I was out at Walmart that just needed to be used :)
I also used a bunch of things that were just hanging around in my stash so it was partly a cleaning house project too.
See how I turned that around?
Check out my fun 'natural' fall wreath...
See? Wasn't it worth it to make yet another wreath?
I had this old wicker wreath that I had used in a project before but it had been lying in the closet for a few months now... and needed a new look :)
So I stripped it back down to it's wicker-ness and decided to play around with it.
Here's what I grabbed:
Wicker wreath form
Scrap pieces of burlap
Several rolls of ribbon (1$ each from Walmart)
Scrap piece of weathered wood
Fall Printable (found here)
Sticks (found in my yard)
Hot Glue Gun
After wrapping my wreath form with strips of burlap, I cut my ribbon into small strips.
I made a whole pile of each color I wanted to use.
Then fold each loop over onto each other and secure with hot glue to make small ribbon 'loops'.
I glued them in rows onto the wreath form, overlapping each of them just a little.
I only did this for about a third of the wreath.
To make the wood sign, I grabbed a piece of weathered wood from my stash and used tacks to secure a cute fall printable to it.
Then I looped some black pom pom ribbon around it a couple times for extra texture :)
After securing my sign to the wreath I felt like the top part was a little bare so I went on a hunt to find something to put there.
I ended up using some sticks I literally found in the yard and spraypainted them gold.
I glued a couple more ribbon loops to them and then secured them directly onto the wreath with a little hot glue.
I love all the natural colors working together and the pop of yellow against all of it!!
I'm usually in the mood for a little more color on my front door but for some reason, this does the trick for me right now :)
I think it sweetly says fall rather than screaming it :)
Have you been on a fall wreath-making kick too?
