Fall "Wreath" Frame

Today I want to share with you my fall "wreath" frame that I made for my front door.


Here is my YouTube video showing you the project up close.




My inspiration came from this picture below. Here is the link to the project

I found this and pinned it on my door/wreath Pinterest board


Sweet Pea Pod: DIY Fall wreath

I wanted to use all existing supplies from my stash. 



I had a plain 10x13 frame from Wal-Mart. I took out the glass, backing, and prongs.  I also had some leftover yarn from the fall wreath that I made last year. Here is a link to that wreath

I had some burlap, paint, prima sprays, and Pink Paislee muslin flowers that I knew I wanted to use as well.


I just started wrapping the yarn around my frame.  This takes the longest amount of time for this project. 

The corners of the frame are the hardest part of this project. I just wrapped a bunch of yarn around the corners until it all folded over the corner and then added some FabriTac glue for extra hold. 


Once I finished wrapping the frame in yarn, I painted my muslin flowers.


While those were drying, I made a banner for my wreath. I cut a template from my Silhouette Cameo and used it to make cuts from some leftover chocolate brown burlap that I had in my stash.  I also used some fall paper from My Little Yellow Bicycle to cut the word fall from my cameo.

I glued the banner to a string of yellow yarn so that I could just tie it to each corner of the frame. I added some My Minds Eye brads between each banner piece. 


I glued everything to my frame and it was done!

Here are some pictures of it on my front door. 



The fuzzy yellow/orange pieces were pulled off of a fall flower spray that I had in my stash.

I love the texture that it adds to my project. 




This frame is so lightweight, that it looked good in other places in my home.  

I played around with it in various settings. Here are those pictures.

Here it is with some pumpkins in the background.




Here it is propped on my fireplace mantel with my canvas pumpkins.

Here is my blog post about my canvas pumpkins.



Here it is on my pantry door.



So as you can see, this project can be placed in many different settings and it will look great. 

Thank you for visiting my channel and my project. 

See you on the next post.

  3. I love that it's square! So out of the box for a wreath. I also love the idea of covering the frame. There are so many possibilities and seasons that this could be used for.
    Way to go!
