I wanted to make a rustic wreath for my kitchen this year and being a huge fan of Autumn and apple pie, I combined the two.
I started with a few items from Michaels and one from Walmart. A wire wreath, the wooden flat-sided rolling pin, a roll of loose woven burlap, a few fall sprigs and some apples came from Michaels. The fabric I found at Walmart; inexpensive and perfect for this project.
The fabric and the burlap were cut in strips roughly 12 inches by 1 inch. The fabric was just as pretty on the flip side and I liked the look of both colors on the wreath.
Each strip was tied randomly to the wire wreath. The loose woven burlap will fray quite a bit while working with it. That’s ok. The overall look should have an uncontrolled and natural appearance.
With the addition of a few small apples, fall flowers and trimmings, the wreath filled out beautifully... and those stray burlap strings just add to the rustic charm.
I loved this wooden, half-rolling pin I found at Michaels. The wire was tied to the bottom of the wreath when it was all done.
PLEASE NOTE: Using any decorative items you wish, this wreath will be beautiful in any room, but is ONLY to be used indoors. The loose woven burlap will not stand up to outdoor weather.
Thanks for visiting!
