fall fun friday: interchangeable burlap wreath.

Who doesn’t love burlap? And who doesn’t love wreaths? You see them just about everywhere on Pinterest. I, for one, am a huge fan. This is why I decided to make a burlap wreath. Makes sense. It was my first wreath project and I’m quite pleased with how it turned out. I also made it interchangeable so that each season, I can change out the flowers instead of making a new one every time.

there’s my wonderful bow tying skills again

What you need for this project:

  • 1 wreath form (Walmart for $1.50)
  • 1 yard of neutral colored burlap material (Joann’s for $1.25)
  • 4 various colors of 1/2 yard of burlap (Joann’s for $0.75 each)
  • 1 Button Cover Kit (Walmart for $1.75)
  • Colorful fabric to cover buttons with (Walmart for $0.33) [you don’t need much!]
  • Wreath hook (Walmart for $2)
  • 3 clips (for back of flowers to clip-on) -already had these
  • Hot glue gun
  • Scissors

You read that right homies, this project only cost me a whopping $10 to make. You can’t find a cuter, pre-made wreath for that (well maybe you can, but I’m a little biased)!

I will try to post a tutorial on the wreath later if enough crafters or wanna-be-crafters (such as myself) would like to know more details on how I made this. Honestly, it was pretty simple.

a closer look at the flowers.

I made the buttons using a “cover button kit” you can buy at walmart and bought some fabric that had all three colors in it to cover them. It was really easy and they turned out perfect.

To make the flowers interchangeable, you will need to cut three pieces of the base color burlap and wrap them loosely around the wreath so as to leave room for a clip to be placed on, then hot glue alligator clips (or something similar) to the back of each flower and clip them to the three loose piece of burlap.

Now all you need to do is collect different colors of burlap throughout the year to change them out for each season and/or holiday. You could even do different shapes to change it up. The possibilities are endless, children.

That’s it for my autumn decor. As we say in Kentucky…..happy fall, y’all!
