Happy Autumnal Days to everyone! Today I want to share a brief tutorial with you about how to create your own fall burlap wreath. Before you know it all the leaves will be falling and there will be trick-or-treaters at your door. So, let's get started!
MATERIALS NEEDED: Straw/foam wreath, burlap, pearl-headed straight pins,scissors, fabric, buttons, designer paper, hot glue gun, sticky strip circles, and tulle.
STEP #1 - Cut your burlap into 4" strips. You will need about 7-10 of these depending upon how tight you wrap your wreath.
Step #2: Begin wrapping your wreath with one strip at a time. Secure strips with straight pins in the back of your wreath.
Step 3: Once you have the wreath covered in burlap, grab some tulle (I used a vanilla shade) and wrap it in the same fashion only more loosely along one side of your wreath. I tried to scrunch and gather mine as I pinned it to give it some fluff!
Step 4: To make the fabric flowers, tear 1-2" strips of fabric. Get a stricky strip circle (I cut mine from SU's sticky strip pages) and start to adhere one edge of the fabric in a pinch and gather motion around the sticky circle. The center will be bare, but it's okay because you will cover it with a rosette or another fabric middle. To make a flower center, create a paper rosette/lolly, or cut a scallop shape using your Big Shot. In my picture you can see I just mixed and matched paper lollies with fabric scallops.
