After countless hours of searching online and in stores for the perfect fall wreath, I decided to make my own. The best thing about making your own wreath is you can make it exactly the way YOU want it to look. I knew I wanted a rustic look with red and orange flowers. So that was a start for me. I decided to go to Michael’s Arts and Crafts store when they were having a sale to purchase all my materials. I picked up a grapevine wreath (the rustic look I was going for), flowers, burlap ribbon (for the bow) and a few other things I thought might look good on the wreath. My total was under $20 (I used coupons to keep it under $20).
You don’t have to be crafty to make this simple piece. Just arrange the flowers and other decorations where you want to place them on the wreath so you can get an idea of how ot will look. When you are satisfied with the placement of everything, hot glue them down. I had to go to YouTube for a quick bow making tutorial but other than that, it was easy peasy. I hope this post inspires you to do it yourself. Happy Fall!
