Pinterest. However, the wreath it linked to wasn't a how-to, but one which I could purchase on Etsy for 40 buckaroos, if I so desired. I did not desire, because I figured I could probably make something pretty darn similar for much less moolah. This wreath is the easiest thing ever to make. I didn't take how-to pictures because I made this around 11 PM one night while Dan was out of town last week and I couldn't sleep. But here are some instructions if you're interested.
What you will need:
- A wreath form. I used a straw one because it was cheaper than the styrofoam/wire ones, and it gives the wreath more of a harvest feel, which is autumn-appropriate. The straw wreath was $3 or $4 at Jo-Ann's.
- Tulle. I bought about a yard each in different Fall colors. Each yard was $1.99. I used almost all of it to make this wreath. If you'd like a fuller wreath, I'd recommend getting more.
- Seasonal embellishment. I saw the leaves and berries in the clearance pile at Michael's. 89 cents! Yay!
- Ribbon. I got this awesome Fall-themed ribbon at Michael's, also on sale. It was a dollar.
- Cut your tulle into strips, about six inches. I wasn't really stressed out about getting them perfect, so some are wider than others. I cut my strips lengthwise and then folded them in half, to make the wreath a little fuller. But really you can make your strips however you'd like. I won't judge you.
- Tie the strips onto the wreath. I decide to do mine in a pattern, alternating the lighter and darker colors: brown, orange, purple, gold.
- Add your embellishment. I just stuck the stem of the leaves through the tulle. Feel free to hot glue if that's a better option for you.
- Tie on ribbon to hang.
P.S. One more thing I like about this wreath: you could make one for any time of the year, just change out colors of tulle. I have a friend at work that is thinking about making one for Christmas.
My next wreath was also super simple. I have a link to a how-to here.
Also, before I go, I just wanted to give a shout-out to my Grammie! Remember those shoes I was pining for in my last post? My grandmother sent me a check in the mail so I could get them! Isn't she a doll?? And aren't these shoes gorgeous??
P.S. I'm getting more and more excited for this holiday season, we'll be traveling for Thanksgiving and Christmas this year! Fun times!
