The Burlap Wreath. Versatile front door decor.

Why is it that the fall season gets so many of us in the crafty mood?  Decorating the porch…baking pumpkin goodies…thinking of DIY Christmas gifts…I feel this way most of the time anyway, but for some reason this season and into the new year, I feel full of creative energy.  Today I wanted to share my favorite little front door decor, The Burlap Wreath.  I realized I have had this on my front door for almost a whole year! I’ve just changed out the decor and phrases for different seasons!  I don’t have any step by step photos, but this basic wreath is perfect, simple, and can be changed all year round!

Here’s what I use for the basic wreath:

..foam wreath.. (floral section at Michaels or Hobby Lobby)

..thick burlap ribbon.. (like THIS)

..hot glue gun..

..twine..

That’s it! Just wrap the foam wreath in the burlap ribbon (or cut burlap into about 7 inch strips) and hot glue and the end!  Use the twine to wrap around the top several times and tie to make a loop to hang.  Then decorate as you please!  I’ve also had other little mini pennant banner phrases like “WELCOME” or “HI THERE”, and you can use different ribbon for color if you wish!

Here is last years Christmas / Winter wreath…

Do you have cute wreath ideas? I’d love to see them!
