DIY Fall Wreath


Isn't this fall wreath just gorgeous?! I had a great time getting crafty and designing this wreath. Its really simple and anyone can create this amazing sunflower fall wreath. I can't wait to share this with you! If you end up making a wreath be sure to email me a photo, tag me on Instagram, or post on my Facebook page! 

Lets get started!
You'll need:
-Wire Wreath Frame (I used a size 18)
-White Pipe Cleaners (3 packs)
-Floral Mesh 21 in x 8 Yd (2 of these)
-Sunflowers or the item you'd like decorate your wreath with
[I bought 3 bundles of sunflowers]


Ready to start? You can use the same foundation to make any wreath for Christmas, spring, or any theme!



First thing you want to do is cut your pipe cleaners in half.



You then want to use a tape measure or ruler to measure out seven inches on the floral mesh and tie it with a pipe cleaner. Your going to do this for the entire roll of the two floral mesh packages you have. This is the most tedious part of making the wreath, but just take your time - listen to some good music and it will fly by!


Your then going to get your wire wreath frame and weave one strand of your floral mesh into it. I used the bottom two sections of the wire wreath frame for the first part. I also alternated each pipe cleaner when attaching it. One on the upper lower and one on the lower wire getting four pipe cleaners in per section.



You'll do this the entire way around the wire wreath frame, it should use up all of one strained of floral mesh.

The next step is to grab the second floral mesh and repeat the same idea with the upper wire wreath frame. Again this should use up all the floral mesh - you'll do 4 pipe cleaners in a section, alternating every other one. 


After your all finished, you just want to fluff out the floral mesh. 
[Hardest part is over! - you did it!]



Now all you have to do is add your sunflowers, or other fall items! I just poked the sunflowers in between the floral mesh and into the back of the wired frame. Once you have the sunflowers positioned in the perfect spot, you can just intertwine the stems into the back of the wired frame.  



Send me your photographs if you create this adorable fall wreath, id love to see them!!
