Fall Ruffled Burlap Berry Wreath

I kept seeing so many great fall wreaths out in blogland and my fall wreath could definitely use a face lift so I decided to go ahead and make a whole new one.

I like this burlap wreath from Becoming Martha and thought I would try something similar. 

Here is my Fall Ruffled Burlap Berry Wreath (say that 5 times fast! lol)

Here is a quick tutorial on how I created it.
-Wreath form
-For the brown burlap, I bought the burlap garland at Michael's.
-Red burlap
-Floral Pins
-Berry garland (also from Michael's)
-Small Glittery Pumpkins (from Hobby Lobby)

I wrapped my wreath form with a red ribbon so if there was any gaps in the burlap, you wouldn't see the white form. I actually used the back side of the ribbon because it was a little lighter than the actually red.

I took the burlap garland and pinned it to my wreath form. 
I just twisted and ruffled or bubbled it and when I was happy with positioning I would place a pin. 
If there was a bare spot, I could easy pull out a pin and mess with it a bit or just wait until I used the red burlap to fill in the gaps.

For the red burlap, I just cut squares and gathered the corners and pushed a pin through it.

I just randomly placed them throughout the wreath. Some are filling flat or empty spots.
Some are hiding pins that are holding the brown burlap down.

I then took the berry garland and pinned it to the back of the wreath. I weaved it in and out of the burlap pinning every so often to hold it in place.

Here is a little closer look at the berries.

I bought these two little pumpkins and glued them together.
I then hot glued some pins on the back of them so I could put them on the wreath.

I actually placed a little bit of hot glue on the ends of the pins so when I pushed them through the fabric and the wreath form they would stay.

I messed around with the berries until I liked where they were all positioned and it was complete! 

I'm pretty excited about my new fall wreath!

I didn't keep it on the door though. I just couldn't leave it out there when it is technically not fall yet so it will go out this weekend when fall officially arrives.
Now I just hope that it stays on my door with the crazy winds we get here!!

Linking up to some of these parties.

  1. Beautiful job! I love how you ruffled the burlap. What great tips your provided on how to get that done. Love it. Megan

  2. Gorgeous, Allison! I've been itching to make one of these bubble burlap wreaths but was debating how to go about it. I love the use of the floral pins! The berries are the perfect touch. SO cute! :)

  9. I love this, you could change out the pumpkins and use it for Christmas also. Place the wreath inside the storm door against your actual door and it would still be visible and protected against the winds you mentioned. Just a thought.

  19. I absolutely love how it looks but more than that that you made the pumpkins removable. So clever!

  20. I love it! and I have a couple of burlap bags that I will cut up and use red fabric I have on hand....I'll have to figure out what to do about the other, but I'm sure I can find something in my stash to dress it up.

    I'll send a pic if I dare to complete it. lol
