Grapevine & Burlap Fall Wreath

This Grapevine and Burlap Wreath is a simple wreath to make! It’s perfect for all seasons

It’s fall y’all! And for me that means changing up things in the house…it’s time for fall colours, rustic elements and cozy fabrics!

One of the things I’m working on right now is my mantel, as it’s at the centre of my home. So the first thing I tackled for it was a wreath. There’s just something about wreaths that I love! I especially love grapevine wreaths, because of how natural they look,  and how pretty they are by themselves.

This week I had a plain grapevine wreath tied up with some burlap, hanging on my pantry door just waiting to be decorated. I thought it looked quite pretty just on its own, with no embellishments,  but I just can’t leave things alone.

I wasn’t sure what look I was going for, but when I saw a wreath from Creative Gypsy I was completely inspired! I have a tonne of burlap around, and little bits of scrap fabric everywhere,  so I knew I could pull something together! So here’s what I came up with:

DIY Grapevine & Burlap Wreath

I really like how it turned out! It’s rustic, subtle and looks great on my old window frame.

DIY Grapevine & Burlap Wreath

Supplies needed to make a burlap wreath:

  • 1 grapevine wreath base
  • burlap
  • other fabric
  • glue gun

How to make a burlap wreath:

  • I used an old chunky knit sweater to make the cream coloured rosettes.  And scrap burlap fabric to make the burlap rosettes.
  • To make the flowers I basically used this technique from another wreath I made. The great thing about making fabric flowers is that you can’t really mess them up.  Just keep twisting the fabric around and you are bound to get a pretty flower.  The more rustic the better I say!
  • Then using a glue gun, I attached the flowers.
  • To hang the wreath, I just made a simple tie made out of a strip of burlap.

I also love that this wreath cost me less than $10 to make.  Score! 

Have a creative day!

    Absolutely adore it! This looks like something I cn make and leave hanging all fall because it’s not ultra seasonal.

    This is such a pretty look for an autumn wreath, Jo-Anna–I love the neutral colors and natural grapevine that you used. Your name Jo-Anna is very pretty–reminds me of the song by the same name by Stephen Sondheim from the musical Sweeney Todd–a gorgeous song!

    While we don’t have much fall here in Phoenix I would love for you to stop by to see where I did find a bit of fall.
