Hello crafters! With fall just around the corner, I thought I would share how I decorated a wreath using our new RABOM Fall prints. I chose to use the prints Harvest Gingham and Sunflowers, but any of our new fall prints and matching grosgrain would achieve the cozy, fun look that this wreath brings to any home!
Starting with a plain dried wreath, twist burlap and Tennessee Wired ribbon together and secure them to the wreath using zip ties. Clear zip ties work best for this step because they blend in with the other embellishments.
Next, add the most important part: the bow! Again, you can use any printed ribbon you want for this. Ribbon with matching colors look really great together and maintain a cohesive look for the project. For this step, you can make any bow you want. If you're not sure what to do, check out some of our bow making tutorials and pick your favorite! Use a zip tie or a hot glue gun to secure the bow to the bottom of the wreath.
Next, you can use some scrap ribbon to add accents to the rest of the wreath.
A super easy way to incorporate extra short pieces of ribbon is tying them around both he burlap twist and the wreath branches to add a pop of print!
To finish off the wreath, add some fall leaves around the bow to tie it all together with some fun colors.
As you can see, decorating a new wreath for the upcoming fall season doesn't have to be difficult! These steps are simply meant for inspiration–get creative with your project and modify it to fit your style; experiment with different prints to see which combos are your favorite.
Remember, there is no wrong way to do it, so have fun with it!
