Fall Flower Wreath
Burlap, color of your choice – Important: 10-inch wide burlap ribbon is really what you need, because it doesn’t fray. I attempted to purchase the 10-inch ribbon, but the store was out of that size. Therefore, I went with regular fabric, which will actually fray over time.
Additional helpful materials:
Hot glue or super glue
Ribbon for hanging
Step 1: Cut fabric into 10 –inch squares. You’ll need approximately 8-10 squares for the outermost rim of the wreath
Step 2: Fold corners in, as shown
Step 3: Scrunch fabric to make a “bowtie” shape
Step 4: Wrap pipe cleaner securely on the outermost rim, as shown, to prepare for attaching fabric
Step 5: Attach fabric by starting with the outermost rim, and work your way in, as shown
Step 6: Repeat the process by working your way toward the center of the wreath
Step 7: Wrap black burlap ribbon through the inside rim and secure it using pipe cleaners, which you will tie on the back of the wreath, so they won’t be seenThis fall flower wreath is hanging from a simple wreath hanger, but you can get creative by adding fancy ribbon or other embellishments!
