Since this is one of my all time favorites, I thought I would share it again! Happy day to you all!

Sometimes there is nothing better than a project that is easy and simple and that you love in the end.

That is the case with my wood and burlap natural fall wreath I made today.

Truly, it could not have been easier.

Step 1:

Update: Since the have been so many questions, the size of the wood discs are approximately 2.5 to 3 inches. For glue, I used E6000. Another good option would be Loctite GO2 glue that is temperature and water resistant. If you were using it indoors, hot glue works just fine.

Slice thin pieces of wood from a dried log. We used our chop saw and did it nice and slowly with a piece of black birch, but any will do. When the log got smaller, we stopped for safety reasons.

Tie a piece of burlap on a flat wooden wreath form first to hang it and then attach the wood slices in a single layer using an adhesive. Do not use hot glue if you are planning to use it outdoors as it can melt and fall apart.

Update: here is a link to the wreath form that I used (affiliate link included).

Step 2:

Add a second layer overlapping where the first layer pieces meet.

Don’t you just love natural wood grain?

Step 3:

I used branches, dried flowers from the craft store and folds of wired burlap ribbon (and a few feathers) and layered them all together and glued them to the front of the wreath.

Almost any type of ribbon or flowers (or feathers) would work it all depends on your style.

And that is it – you are done.

Promised it was easy!
