Hello and welcome back! I hope you are having a fabulous fall thus far. It still feels like summer here in Florida, but I’m not letting that discourage me from participating in all the fall things. I’m back today with another DIY Fall Wreath. There is something about burlap that screams fall to me.
I’ve seen so many of these bubble wreaths out there and decided to give it a shot. This one is so silly easy and affordable that I just may be making more and giving them away as gifts in the very near future!
I’m really happy with how this fall wreath turned out. I must admit, I patted myself on the back when Isaac told me it looked store bought. If I can make this wreath, so can you!
Here is what you will need:
- Wire wreath (on sale at Joann for $1.50)
- Burlap ribbon (on sale at Joann for $2)
- Decorative bow (on clearance at Joann for $2 or you can make your own! See tutorial here)
- Puppy assistant (optional)
Cooper is the best assistant ever for these projects. He always provides such great moral support.
First, I tied the end of one of the rolls of burlap ribbon to the outer part of the wreath.
To create the bubble look, start to pull the ribbon through the space between the next wire, moving toward the center of the wreath, but don’t pull all the way through. Repeat this process of pulling the ribbon partially through the wire until you get to the inside of the wreath, then move toward the outside of the wreath.
Continue weaving the ribbon around the wire until the wreath is covered. Tie the end of the ribbon to the wire on the wreath. You can hot glue it to secure it. If there are any gaps where you can see the wire wreath poking through you can fluff your ribbon to cover the wire. The ribbon I chose had soft wire inside that made it really easy to keep its shape. I ended up using two rolls of burlap ribbon for this wreath. The bow I bought was big enough to hide the gap.
Once your bow is secure, you are all set!
I decided to hang this wreath above our fireplace in our living room. It gives the perfect little touch to our fall decor.
