Fall Leaves & Burlap Wreath (Video Tutorial Included)

All right, I couldn’t stand it one second longer!  As y’all know, I finished my Fall decorating a few weeks ago and I thought I was going to be able to stand *not* switching out at that big burlap wreath that I had hanging up on the mirror over the mantel to something in a fall themed design.  Well, I was completely wrong, it was driving me ***crazy*** to not have a wreath that matched the rest of the Fall decor!

Here is what the fireplace/mantel/mirror looked like before with the rest of the fireplace/mantel done up for Fall:

And this is a close-up of that wreath that turned out beautifully, but, did not match the Fall decorations:

I have now remedied the confused decorating state that my fireplace,mantel, & mirror were stuck in and have replaced the above wreath with this one that I created after purchasing all supplies on sale yesterday:

Here is a list of the supplies that I utilized:

  • Large Metal Wreath Frame
  • 2 Large Skeins of Burlap
  • 2 Leaf Garlands
  • 3 Resin Pumpkins
  • Coordinating Wired Ribbon
  • Grapevine Pumpkins
  • Orange Berry Stems
  • Floral Wire & Pipe Cleaners

Here is a video tutorial for you. 🙂

And here are a couple of pictures of the finished product:

I know it may seem silly to some of you that not having a wreath to match the rest of the fireplace/mantel decor would drive me so crazy, but, as y’all know by now, I’m a very anal retentive person who strives each day to pull my decor together into one cohesive design–I feel like I have now done that in the family room.  All is well now, and I can breathe a lot easier and not cringe with frustration when I look at that mirror. 😉 🙂

  1. Thank You, Arlynn! The video is wonderful. I had been wondering how you achieved the full look in your wreaths. You worked so hard in making the wreath! And I LOVE the results! I agree, it really pulls the whole room together! Marvelous!

    1. Thank you so much sweet lady—This one gave me a time of it..haha. Those pumpkins were almost tossed out of the picture, but, I was determined to use them. I did have to fight it a bit, but, the end result was worth the frustration. 🙂 I feel so much better now that I’ve switched out my more generically decorated wreath with this Fall one. 🙂 (I was having nightmares…LOL…Nah, just kidding, but it was bothering me greatly). 😉 🙂 ❤
