Fall Burlap Wreath

It isn't too early to share fall inspired projects yet is it?! It will be September (HOLY COW!!) in a few hours so Fall is right around the corner so me and a few other bloggy friends have some fun wreaths for you to get you in the mood.

I have another Fall Burlap Wreath for you today. 
I sure hope you aren't tired of burlap yet. I still love it and I just think it is so PERFECT for fall.

This is a simple wreath and can be completely in a short amount of time. 

Here is how I created it so you can make one too! 

Supplies: (All supplies were bought at Michaels)
-Burlap Garland
-Accent Burlap Ribbon
-Floral Pins
-Burlap Bow (I bought a ready made one but you can make your own)
-Berry Picks
-Bird Pick

Start with the burlap garland and take a floral pin and push the pin through the end of the burlap. 

Twist the burlap and adds pin where you want to make a loop.
Continue around the wreath form.

I left an area open where I planned on adding the bow.
If you don't like how your loops look, too big or bad placement, just remove the pin and change it! 
I changed mine about 3 times! 

Add the bow to make sure you like it.

Now it is time to add your accent burlap ribbon. 

Pin the end down and then weave, loop, and pin around the first burlap ribbon.
Again, you can change it around if you aren't happy with their placement.

At this time, I added a few more floral pins around the edges where I wasn't too keen on how large the loops were sticking out. Just play around with it until you are happy with the look.

 Time to add the berries and your little bird.
I found this little bird at Michaels and just had to buy it! I loved it! I found the berries and decided I wanted to throw them in the wreath as well for a little extra flair.

I added the bird on the top of the wreath with the berries behind it.

 I then add some berries by the bow to bring the shine down towards the bottom.

And once you are happy with the placement of the picks, you are DONE! :) 

I can't wait to place this new guy outside in a few weeks.
