Fall Wreath

Remember this wreath of yore?  It adorned our front door all summer and now that it's fall I decided we needed a new look.

Please ignore the door that needs re-painted

I made the burlap wreath this spring with the intention of reusing it every time I felt the urge to change our door decor.  Instead of buying a new wreath all the time I could repurpose the burlap wreath, so that is exactly what I did. I removed the fabric flowers (they were only pinned in) and then created an argyle pattern using felt in an autumn palette.

I like the end result.  It's very simple and I could always add some felt leaves or felt flowers to embellish it, but right now I'm enjoying the simplicity.  It was also very simple to make.  The whole project could easily be completed in 30 minutes (alas I never had 30 minutes of uninterrupted time so I worked on it over several days).

Here's my inspiration and a tutorial found via pinterest.  I used a burlap wreath instead of yarn and I used brown embroidery floss instead of yarn for the criss-cross pattern because that's what I had at home.
