Hello, fall. We're feeling crafty over here at Redeux and wanted to share an easy, fun DIY autumn craft with our fellow Redeuxers.
Ben's Burlap Fall Wreath
What you'll need:
- 1 yard of burlap (color's up to you!)
- 1/2 yard of decorative fabric of your choice
- Hot glue gun + glue
- 18 inch straw wreath (you can even keep the plastic on!)
- Decorative button for the flower center
Start by covering a straw wreath with burlap strips, approximately three inches wide. Pull the strips tight around the wreath and secure with hot glue.
Use your decorative fabric to make an easy gathered flower. Consider this your yo-yo flower hack: just fold a three-inch strip of fabric in half and then pinch it together in folds. Secure in the middle with hot glue. Finish off with a little circle of burlap in the center and top with your button.
(Ben even added a second flower because they're so darn cute.)
Use the leftover decorative fabric strip to hang the wreath by tying the fabric in a bow around your hook or nail.
Easy peasy, cute fall wreathy.
