Ever since I was planning my wedding, I have been in love with burlap.  Now that the wedding is over, I can start using burlap in some of my holiday decorating.  Below is a super easy way to make a beautiful Fall burlap wreath.

I started my wreath by first making the bow I wanted to go on it.  I chose a rich chocolate brown, velvet ribbon that I found on sale at JoAnn's.  Making bows is a very recent thing for me and I find it helpful to use a bow maker.




Next, I made the actual wreath.  I chose a wire wreath form and used a 10 yard roll of burlap.


I first gathered the end of the burlap and secured it to the wreath form using ribbon wire.



Next, I tucked a small amount of the burlap through a section of the wreath form.  I pulled on the burlap to make a small loop and fluffed it out. 


 
 I then pinched the end of that loop before repeating the pull and fluff action in the section of the wreath form right next to loop I had just made. 



I repeated the pinch, pull, fluff routine around the entire wreath form, making sure that each section looked nice and full.

 Then, I added my bow also using the ribbon wire.



Finally, I added a little fall floral decoration securing it also with ribbon wire.


I love how the wreath turned out.  Now, I just need to make some in time for Christmas!
