The Easiest Fall Burlap Wreath Tutorial

Can you  believe my burlap wreath is entering it's 3rd Season.
FALL!
In the Spring, it all started with the original wreath tutorial here and the mossy bunnies.
Then a real hot Summer with stars and bandannas here

Now it's ready for Fall and some color changes 

For my fall wreath I chose rich fall colors of orange, green and red. I selected an artificial sunflower and some berry picks and mixed them in with some natural cat tails.
Group your stems together and secure with a plastic tie
Wrap jute around the plastic tie to conceal and wrap your stems
Secure on the wreath with a piece of jute so that it blends with your wreath . Tie the jute around your the rim on the back of the wreath, to hold your arrangement in place.
For my initial, I used both an orange and cooper color to complement the other colors in the wreath. First I sprayed the sides of the letter orange and then I sprayed the top of the letter in cooper. I secured with a dab of glue. You can  also use jute to tie it in as well.
I will certainly enjoy this wreath during the Fall season. Rumor has it ( according to the bunnies ) that burlap does not like the cold, so I am not sure if it will see Winter!

Here is my latest fall versions of my burlap wreath. Orange burlap pumpkin wreath here.

Black burlap spider wreath here.

I love how you've been able to dress up this wreath for all the seasons, Laura! Love the initial and flowers you've used for Fall.

A burlap wreath is on my list of things to make this week, and I was planning on using the same red sunflowers that you used. What a coincidence! I hope mine looks as good as yours.

I'm loving the fall interpretation ... and you must, must ignore that silly bunny and go for a winter version too! I mean, you're in the South after all!

I like the way your wreath can be changed with the season. The addition of the colorful floral pieces really say autumn. -------Shannon

This makes your wreath even more awesome - that it go through many seasons. Hmm, Christmas?

OK, I just started at the beginning of this post & read through all the comments trying to find detailed instructions for the burlap wreath. Although I didn't find instructions, I did find 2 links for other blogs that have detailed instructions:

Hopefully this helps all the other 20+ crafters who need instructions :)

Love this! I made a similar one, but didn't add the flowers or the initial - great idea!
