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!

I totally have that same twig wreath on my wreath board on Pinterest; I just loved the look of it, but I have to say, I might now love yours better! I’m so delighted to know that the freezer paper stenciling was successful for you. Isn’t it fun? And kind of magical? Now, I’m pinning YOUR wreath!
Hi Meredith! Just saw your ping pong ghosts tutorial. Will you link it up to my Friday Favorites Party at http://imnotatrophywife.com
Oh wow this wreath is so gorgeous! The stenciling looks great, and even better that it was made from things you had already. Beautiful!
so cute! I love the ways turned out! The color of your door is perfect too! Thanks for linking this up to Tasteful Tuesdays at Nap-Time Creations. EMily
