Fall Burlap Wreath with Step by Step Directions for Making a Bow

Posted by on Sep 3, 2013 in burlap, fall, wreaths | 21 comments

I am not sure when it happened…but I now have 2 girls in middle school.

The days of recess and PE are over for these two.

So we are trying to take a walk every night after dinner.

And tonight as we walked…we didn’t even break a sweat.

Because the weather was cool and wonderful,

and we could hear the high school band practice,

and I was reminded that it really is almost fall.

So as we walked my wheels were spinning about how I wanted to decorate the porch for fall this year.

It just might include this fall burlap wreath.

And, you know what?

As we focus more on blessings and thankfulness in the fall,

I think no recess and PE might just be a blessing for my family…

…because I am so thankful for the time

that my family had together tonight on our walk. :)

Life to the full!

  1. Love this, and that striped burlap bow is wonderful!

  2. Very pretty, Melissa! I need to make a new wreath for our front door. This is definitely an idea to keep in mind for it.

  3. Love this. Must try!!

  4. How do we make the wreath. Need instructions to do that.

  5. Love bow, where did you find three tones ribbon? Love how it looks, very nice. I’ll have to go to how to see how you did all the squiggling of burlap ribbon on the wreath from. Found the forms at HL, decent priced is great.
    I found several really nice brass pieces you might like at Habitat yesterday. Every time I see brass pieces now I think of you. There was a really long brass planter like piece at local thrift store today, would be nice on a table or wherever.
    We haven’t been to Habitat for quite awhile til yesterday, was nice as I ran into a friend haven’t seen for awhile. Found a couch I’d love to have, but was almost $200 so guess it’ll go to another home. Really loved the style and fabric on it. Would look nice without a slipcover but I’d put one on to keep it clean. Ah well maybe some day I’ll have that kind of money to buy one. Habitat had lots I’d love to have.
    Take care, aren’t walks nice? Can have a conversation, good with kids, Happy days to you. Love your wreath with pretty bow and wheat.

  6. Hi Melissa, I’m coming to you from It’s Overflowing. This is really pretty (love the ribbon)! Your home is exquisite!! I love the country farmhouse/French decor and the way you have displayed your treasures! Your girl’s bedrooms are so cleverly decorated as well! I just signed up to follow.

  7. Very pretty! Big fan of that ribbon!

  8. How do you make the wreath itself? The bow is easy.

    • This is what I am thinking… How do you do the wreath? I can do a bow and wheat straw…

      • There is a link for how to make the wreath right under the supply list :)

  9. Wow, Melissa, I love the colour ribbon you used for the bow! It works perfectly with the burlap! And love the whole wreath, so perfect for autumn.

  18. Made up a 12″ frame but used one size burlap using your technique. Changed it up a bit by adding two vertical then one horizontal. Went super fast! Will be heading to the shop embellish. Craft show this weekend! Thanks for the tips!
