{kinda} Wordless Wednesday – My Fall Wreath


I have a confession.

Deep down inside I love crafting. I’m not very good at it but I would like to start trying. I’ve been perusing Hobby Lobby far too often, now that it is only a few minutes from my house. You can only go in there so many times without getting the feeling that you can actually make something.

I finally decided I would try my hand at something and decided to make a wreath for my front door to jump start my fall porch decorations.

I started off with a wreath that was $6.99 and a roll of burlap that was $4.99 both from Hobby Lobby. I also purchased this metal hanging sign from Kohl’s that was half off and ended up costing $9.99

Next I figured out how low I wanted the sign to hang inside of the wreath. It was a little long so I undid the knots and retied them at the length I wanted.

Once I had that all squared away I messily attached it to the wreath using a piece of burlap.

Next I went about constructing a bow. I knew it needed to be big. I really wanted one of those elaborate loopy bows but I couldn’t figure out how to make that work without some hot glue which I didn’t have so I kept it simple.

After that was said and done. I messily attached the hook that I got from the Dollar Tree to the wreath by tying tight knots in the burlap to make sure it didn’t move.

Arranged my bow, so that it was presentable. I was baffled on how to attach the bow since I didn’t have hot glue. I had a light bulb moment and decided to squeeze it under the burlap that I used to attach the sign and it worked just fine.

Hung it on the door!

Are you crafty?! Is your wreath up? Are you putting one up?

  1. I am no where near crafty. I want to be, but it just never works out. Instead, I’ll spend time next week looking for a store bough wreath from hobby lobby, ross or Kohls. #theend

  2. You did a really good job! For me, the nearest Hobby Lobby is about a 40 minute drive. I don’t get to go too often, but God when I do… I am in heaven! That place really does make you feel like you can make ANYTHING! I come home with so many of those little idea sheets that it’s not even funny. Hmm, now you’ve got me thinking about making a trip out there…

  3. I’m crafty when I want to be. And sadly I haven’t been feeling too crafty lately. I have yet to even make pick up supplies for our wreath. We went to Target and the Dollar Tree two weekends in a row and I still left both stores without the supplies. Hopefully, this weekend I won’t get so caught up in looking at other stuff and I’ll remember to pick up a wreath and let the kiddies pick out the stuff to decorate it with.

  4. I consider myself pretty crafty.. especially when I don’t have much to work with. LOL! I do plan to do a wreath this year, but I haven’t started.

    I think you did a really good job. I’m really starting to appreciate the burlap touch to things.

  5. I still do not have our wreath up… but I’m getting back into my DIY Décor grove.
    Okay, we do not have a Hobby Lobby in my state or area. However, our store (i.e. Michael’s, Joann’s and AC Moore) usually accepts competitor coupons, and mobile coupons as well that are usually 40%-50% off. Just a FYI

    1. I use to think the same thing. I guess I’ve been reading too many blogs. You really do have to add your own touch. I think they are easy ways to decorate and add a little flavor to the front of your house.
