Autumn Wreath - Pinterest Challenge Friday

Kendra always makes such pretty wreaths for her front door which she has posted here, here, here, and here.  I thought I should give it a try.  Where to go for inspiration ~ Pinterest ~ of course! 
I actually found several ideas that I wanted to incorporate, especially to use the stash of materials that I had on hand.

It took a little time, but I am so pleased with the results!


My supplies:
14" round straw wreath
burlap
fall colors of felt
steam of artificial berries



What I did:
I cut the burlap into 2 1/2" strips.  It was a messy job, but I found a fantastic tutorial that made the work a lot easier.


I wrapped the straw wreath with the burlap using my hot glue gun to secure each strip.

Then I made my felt flowers following the directions given on this you tube tutorial

Love the way it turned out; it has inspired me to pull out the rest of my fall decorations!

That looks great! I have no talent for those type of things so I would have to just buy one..or wait until Michaels does 60% fall stuff.
