I finished my Pinterest-inspired burlap wreath and I really love the way it turned out!
I really needed a wreath to transition from summer to fall and I think this was the perfect choice! Even though summer is almost over, it is still 90+ degrees so I’m just not ready to bust out the orange and rust colors and pumpkins yet.
I followed THIS TUTORIAL on Today’s Fabulous Finds and adapted it to my needs. First off, my dollar store was out of the foam wreath forms, so I used a straw wreath form instead. I just left the plastic covering on it.
I used some neutral ribbon from my stash to wrap the wreath so none of the straw would show through.
I also used these floral pins instead of regular sewing pins because they are a little more heavy duty.
I cut about 40 squares of burlap, I guess they were about 4”-5” each. So my wreath is not quite as large or full as the one on Today’s Fabulous Finds.
I then folded all the corners together using the floral pin to hold them together.
So I ended up with these little burlap “bubbles” that I pinned all over the wreath.
Totally cute all on its own, but since it is football season, I couldn’t leave well enough alone! I made a bow using purple and tiger striped ribbons and painted up a quick “Geaux Tigers” sign on a 5x7 canvas.
Here’s how it looks from the back, all nice and neat:
Perfect for the first few weeks of football season! I may just have to put my fall wreath into retirement and use this one until Christmas!
