Simple Autumn Burlap Wreath

Although I am not much of a crafter, I still enjoy making things for fun. I found myself, in 90 degree weather this week, wanting to make something easy but pretty for my front door. I saw a few examples I liked on Pinterest ,so I thought I would give it a try:

I used:   1 Wire Wreath. I used a 16” I found at Hobby Lobby for $3.99.

                 4 rolls of Burlap ribbon 4 inches wide. 1/2 price at Hobby Lobby.

Directions:

I did not have any floral wire like others had suggested, so I used a bag tie and weaved it through the wire to anchor the burlap to the wire wreath:

I started mine on the inside of the ring.

Then turn the wreath so it is facing you. From where you attached the burlap, start by making a loop and then squeeze the bottom of the loop into the frame. I went from front to back:

I filled in a section of the wire at a time, squishing the loops together to hold better and also to look fuller.

Quick and easy!:

I have seen it left unadorned, but I added just a little embellishment to mine:

Just perfect to me! What I like is best is that I can untie the bow and sunflowers and exchange for Halloween, Thanksgiving or Christmas decorations. What do you think?
