Fall Burlap Wreath

Katie and I had another craft day a few Saturdays ago. Last time we made Name Blocks and this time we wanted to make fall wreaths. We used this tutorial that I posted awhile back from when my mom made a burlap wreath... hers had shells for summer.


Katie only had a 12 inch wreath instead of a 14 inch so she adapted the tutorial and just made 7 rosettes instead of 8. We found our fall flair at michaels for 40% off! We had a fun morning and the wreaths took a few hours with us chatting too so perhaps it could go faster if you were focused. We were a little intimidated at first but it proved to be pretty easy and we got the hang of doing the rosettes!



Sorry this first picture below is so blurry, it's from Katie's phone. Her's turned out great and is hanging in her living room.


I realized it didn't fit well under the wreath hanger hook so I just attached it underneath the hook with some twine.


So as you can see the burlap wreath works great for many seasons. I love how mine looks on the front door!


On another note, I never realized how much I love our green front door. When we were picking out things at the design center (boy that was a ton of decisions in a short amount of time), Eric and I both immediately agreed on the green door... not too dark of a shade and not too light either. The lady there said good choice... green is for life.... perfect... I did want my house to be full of life :)  AND it goes with every season! I never realized it at the time but how many colors can really pull off looking like summer, spring, fall, and winter. Green is the only one I can think of. Many colors go with 3 seasons but not with all 4... bonus!
