 With 2 wild little monkeys (oops, I meant boys) needing my constant attention I don't have too much time to be crafty these days, but every once in a while I can fit something in... here's how I got to make a new fall wreath:

I worked on the wreath on the porch while they played in the backyard (they were in their element, I was in mine).

When I took the photo my son was coming to ask me for some help getting the mud off his hands... which was AWESOME because a year ago he would have tried to get it off himself... with his mouth.  Progress, people!

This wreath only cost me $1 to make!  Someone had given me the Styrofoam wreath, I used scrap fabrics, and I bought the bird at Dollar Tree (I also used scissors, hot glue, and a little bit of thin wire).  If you don't have a Styrofoam wreath you can be cheap and crafty and make your own out of a pool noodle!

1.  I started by tearing the fabric into strips about 1.5" wide.

2.  I tied the strips around the wreath form and then trimmed off the ends so the edge was more even.

3.  After that it still needed a little something, so I made a bow out of burlap ribbon (using a little wire to hold it together) and hot-glued the bow and the bird onto the wreath.

Here's another super-duper easy fall craft that I made last fall (if I can make this while caring for a newborn and 2 year-old, you can do it!)

  1. Very cute! Love it!

  2. Super cute! Wat type of knot did you use? I made one and I had some of the foam showing through in places. I overlapped the material and the only place it showed was around the knots. Any ideas?

    • Thanks! I wish I knew what the knot is called… I just held both ends together and tied them in a single knot. After I tied several on I would scoot them closer together. If you look really close at mine I’m sure you could see the foam base, I’m hoping nobody will look that close;)

  3. Fabric and burlap, YES please! Love this!!! Creative and so cute. Come link up to the Fall Wreath challenge at The CSI Project. It is going on right now.
