Although we’re still trying to decide on a paint color for our front door of the new house, with the change of seasons, I decided it was time to put out a Fall wreath. A couple of years ago, my sweet friend, Shelley, made this burlap ruffled wreath for me. It’s my favorite wreath for Fall. It’s great because it looks fabulous on its own, but also can be customized for the seasons with simple adornments. This Fall I decided to go with a peacock inspired look for the wreath.
I chose to add a simple flower made out of ribbon with some feathers attached to it. I love the deep sapphire colors of the feathers and the peacock inspired look. This deep blue color will work well for Fall, but can go right into Winter, too. It’s also a color that is used inside the house, so it ties in the outside to the inside décor.
What you’ll need
3 inch ribbon
Button or pom pom
- I already had a burlap wreath on hand. But if you are wanting to make a burlap wreath, you can find instructions here, here, and here.
- For the ribbon flower, simply sew, by hand, a large running stitch along one side of the ribbon. Pull tightly on the thread to gather ribbon. I used about one half a spool of ribbon to make this flower.
- Starting at one end, simply roll up the ribbon into a flower shape. Hot glue down the underside edges as you go. If desired, glue a small button or pom pom inside the circle to hide any glue or stitches.
- Glue the feathers to the back of the flower.
- Cut a small piece of ribbon, large enough to tie around the wreath. Tie ribbon onto the wreath.
- Glue flower and feathers to the ribbon in the desired position. Let dry. Now, you’re ready to hang your wreath!!!
