Homemade Wreath

A DIY wreath can be made from pretty much any material so only use this tutorial as inspiration. Look around in your home for, fabrics, leaves twigs, string and paper; do whatever looks good.

Materials  

  • Wreath form  
  • Yarn, fabric or anything to cover the form
  • Hot glue gun
  • Scissors
  • Any other decorations that you want to add to your wreath

I wanted to reused items that I already had in the home so I created my own wreath form by drawing a two circles onto cardboard and cutting it out. What you end up with is a very flat, one dimensional piece. You can get a foam form which would add more depth but I didn't mind that it was flat so I went with it.

I had some left over yarn from a previous project which just happened to be orange so it worked well for my autumn wreath. I wrapped the yarn around the form about a million times and It takes a lot of yarn to fully cover the form so that no cardboard shows. This was the most time consuming portion of this project so if you don't have a lot of time to waste I recommend covering it in another material like fabric or burlap.

Next, I ruffled some harvest plaid fabric and attached it to the lower left side. I achieved this by scrunching the fabric and gluing it together. This takes a little trial an error to create the perfect ruffle.

I then added some rolled fabric roses. I think the only thing missing are some green felt leaves but didn't have any on hand so I left them out.

I hung the wreath by using a strip of the same fabric as used for the roses.  The shape of it is a little wonky but I love the simplicity of this piece. It has an organic feel to it which works well for autumn.
