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:

  • 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. 😉 🙂
