- 18-in. square wire wreath form
- Floral wire
- 2 rolls 8-in.-wide burlap
- 1 large or several small fall leaf sprigs
- Galvanized metal letter (about 6 in. tall)
- Low-temp hot glue gun and glue sticks
Open first roll of burlap and unroll. Tuck 1 end of the burlap through the corner of the metal wreath form, between the center and outer wire. Secure it to the wreath form with a small piece of floral wire.
To make loops, pull about 4 inches of the burlap through from the back of the form to the front of the form between the center and outside wire. Then pull the next 4 inches through to the front of the form between the center and inner wire.
Continue pulling through equal 4-in. lengths of burlap between the wires of the wreath form until you reach the end of the first roll. You should have about ½ to ⅔ of the wreath covered. Fluff out, twist, and scrunch the loops to hide the wire form.
Repeat with the remaining roll of burlap until you have the entire wreath form covered. You may have some excess burlap left. Cut off excess burlap and tuck the end of the burlap through to the back of the wreath form. Secure it with more floral wire. Trim any burlap threads.
Arrange leaf sprigs and letter onto the burlap wreath base. With a low-temp hot glue gun, glue the leaf sprigs to the wreath first, and then glue on the letter. Use additional floral wire to secure, if needed.
Hang on your front door or in a covered area to keep it looking its best.
