Fall Wreath

I've had the stuff for this wreath laying around since before we moved into our new house but between moving, two sick toddlers and traveling to Idaho, I have hardly had time to decorate. My fall decoration box is still closed with everything still in but today, I had some motivation during nap time to do this wreath.

All you need is: a wreath, fabric, twine (or jute...I'm not sure of the difference), hot glue gun, ribbon and the letter you would like. I bought everything from Hobby Lobby. The fabric was left over from the boys' lamp (that I would like to mention was broken during our move by our movers...sigh....)

Wrap your letter in the twine. Every couple turns, I used a little hot glue to keep it in place. Some letters will be more difficult then others. I think letters with more curves will be a little harder but just wrap it until it is completely covered.

I used this tutorial for the fabric flowers: Cherry Street Cottage

Use your hot glue gun and glue the flowers into place. I used three flowers but you can use more or less.

Cut your ribbon long enough to go around the wreath and hang on your wreath hanger.
