Easy Fall Wreath




Can’t you just feel it in the air?  It’s coming…I just know it! Even though it’s still hotter’n blue blazes in these parts, much as I know the tax man cometh, I just KNOW that autumn is on its way, too!  And so in preparation, today we’re getting our front doors ready with an easy to make wreath!

Make Your Own Easy Fall Wreath

 

Honestly, when it comes time to decorating, I’m mildly seriously “challenged”…but I DO appreciate a fun craft, and I like to do something to help visitors and guests feel welcome, so a wreath seemed like a good idea 🙂

What You Needsupplies needed for easy fall wreath

  • straw wreath (I used a 14″ size)
  • ~60 3″ square scraps in whatever colors/patterns you like (you can do less, but your wreath won’t be as full…)
  • pinking shears
  • screw driver
  • yarn/raffita

I bought an inexpensive straw wreath at Michael’s (you can find coupons here) and 5 colors of 1/4 yard scraps. But you could make this even less expensive by using scraps that you already have…

Anyway, measure and cut out 3″ squares, and if you cut them out using pinking shears, they won’t fray and will have cute, festive edges…

Put the screw driver in the middle of a piece of fabric and push it into the straw.  Do that all around the wreath in whatever pattern you want, or just fill it up!Easy fall wreath instructions

Create a bow with the raffita ribbon, and I made a loop to hang it up with some of the leftover material I had…

Voila!  Easy fall decoration 🙂

(I had enough leftover scraps that I’m gonna attempt a garden flag for outside the door…if I get the time courage to try it, I’ll let you know how it goes…)

      I loved the colors, too! That’s the great thing about this…you can use almost any color combo. Who says fall colors have to be earth tones??

    I love the color and the fact that I could use scrap material! Thanks for sharing with us at the Teach Me Tuesday Linky Party!

      Really! And because the materials are so flexible…there are SO many options for this! Different colors for different occasions and different holidays, etc. A “win-win-win…” craft in my book!

    Cute wreath! I love how colorful it is, instead of only using traditional fall colors.
