I had a hard time deciding what kind of fall wreath I wanted to make for our front door. I love the look of burlap wreaths with flowers, but I had already done something similar with my Spring Yarn Wreath. Then I saw this beautifully simple twig wreath from Design, Dining & Diapers. I knew I wanted to make something like it!
(Pin it HERE)
I collected some twigs and set about making my own. There isn’t much need for a tutorial…you can probably figure out how to tie some twigs together in a rectangle! And if you’d like step-by-step pictures to guide you through it, Taryn has a great tutorial in her post.
Just like my inspiration wreath, I decided to make some burlap letters to hang inside the wreath, but to switch it up a bit I went with “welcome.” I tried freezer paper stenciling using my Silhouette for the first time (Lauren at The Thinking Closet has a great tutorial if you’re new at it too) and it worked out pretty well!
I hot glued the burlap squares onto a piece of baker’s twine and hung it in the wreath.
The best part about this project was it didn’t require a trip to the craft store – everything I needed was a pretty basic craft essential (burlap, twine, acrylic paint), and of course the twigs were free! I’d say that’s much better than buying a $30+ pre-made wreath!
I am so excited with how my fall front porch has come together. (Did you see the sneak-peak I instagrammed the other day?) I’ll be sharing two more great projects in the next couple of days – so stay tuned!
