Easy DIY Autumn Wreath


-- Second post of the day! --

So here's a project that has been in the works for about a month! I wrapped the wreath in twine late last month when I did our autumn mantle {post to come about that!}, but it got left to the wayside. I finally got to finish it this afternoon! Yays :)

This is a super simple wreath, and I'll share a full photo tutorial for it soon...
{1} It started with an eco-friendly "styrofoam" type wreath from Hobby Lobby.
{2} Proceeded to wrap it in the great golden wheat colored yarn, which took about an hour & half- I just wrapped it while watching some of my favorite shows ;)
{3} Then cut out circles of some great fall fabric I've had for a year or so, put a pin through the center on each circle, and pushed it into the foam. Repeat lots of times.
{4} Then I created the fun little "autumn" banner with my scrapbooking supplies and The Twinery twine and hung it on our door!
