Fall Wreath

Managed to whip up two wreaths this weekend and I’m sharing with you one of them. The wreath I’m calling my Fall Wreath (creative, I know, hehe), I’ve decided to put up in the house instead of on the door for now. All you’ll need is a wire clothes hanger, material for your wreath (I used burlap and fabric from a jellyroll), and the usual supplies like hot glue, scissors, a band-aid for the hot glue burn that leaves a whopper of a blister. Yeah, that was just for me. I always have one casualty while using that thing!
I had my husband unwrap the clothes hanger for me because I tried and couldn’t. After cutting my burlap into 2 1/2 in. strips, I started weaving it onto the clothes hanger. I believe I used about 2 yards of burlap but the more, the better because it will look full and fluffy and not show the clothes hanger. I think I needed about another 1/2 or whole yard because I kept rearranging so no silver metal was peaking through, then I’d dab some hot glue here and there to make some of the folds lay right. So, after I finished with weaving, I had my husband twist the wire, then I cut off the extra wire with wire cutters. Now you’re ready to decorate it!

    1. Lauren, I did wrap the roses myself! I'll be honest though and let you know that I scoured my Pinterest boards because I couldn't quite get them right, lol. After the fourth or fifth though, I felt like they were looking better with less hot glue mess!
