So I know that I already posted a thanksgiving table décor post but what if you want something quick and simple for your front door and didn’t want to spend that much money on it. Well I have the solution for you a Thanksgiving wreath; it’s super simple and didn’t cost me much. It took me about an hour or so to do but that’s because I have OCD and perfection issues lol. As always supplies and photos are posted below and comments are always appreciated.
Hard Foam Wreath – Any art store but I went to Michaels
Burlap wrap – Any art store but I went to Michaels
Hot Glue Gun
Fabric Leaves different colors – Deals
Autumn Flowers – Deals
Ok so now that you have your supplies the rest is super simple. I wasn’t sure how much burlap I should cut so first wrapped the burlap around the foam wreath and once I had it fully covered I cut the burlap and then I unwrapped it. I know it’s a little annoying it wrap it just to unwrapped it but depending on the size of your wreath it’s always a good idea to have a correct measurement. Make sure to cut a little extra because once you start to wrap it with the hot glue it will be difficult to unwrap and fix it you place it too close.
As I wrapped it around I made sure to pull tight so it wraps around nicely and I placed 4 strips of glue for every wrap. Once I had it all covered you can see that I have a small piece of the wreath that is not covered in burlap but don’t worry if this happens to you that’s where you’re going to place your bow.
I cut a long piece of burlap about 15 inches and I placed it on the part of the wreath that is not covered in burlap. I crossed it underneath as shown in the picture below and then I tied it as if I was tying my shoes. Once it was tied I fixed the bows and I placed a couple of dots of hot glue to the bottom of the knot so it will stay in place. Then I gather the autumn flowers that I bought cut off the bottom of the stem with pliers and placed them on the side of the knot. Then I hot glue them into place as well as hot gluing the edge of the bow flap for extra security.
Well I hope you like the wreath and if you have any comments or questions you can place them below.
