Embellishments, I used Fall floral that I previously got from Michael’s
I love making pumpkins and this one was so much fun!
First I cut out a circle from the burlap. The circle doesn’t have to be perfect. I used twine to sew the burlap. A yarn needle is good to use when sewing with twine.
I did a basic stitch around the whole border of the circle. Make sure to leave a tail at the beginning of the stitch and at the end.
To close the pumpkin gently pull on the twine tails. When the hole is still opened some add stuffing to the pumpkin. You can make it as plump as you would like.
Once your pumpkin is stuffed you can tie the pumpkin closed. Make sure to tie it pretty tight.
Then you can add a stem and embellishments to your pumpkin! I cut some twigs from a grapevine wreath to make my stem. I wrapped wire around the bottom of the sticks to hold them together. Then I added leaves and Fall flowers to the pumpkin.
I hope you give this a try! Comment below with your favorite pumpkin crafts!
I was excited to incorporate this Dollar Tree towel into a fall wreath! First I used a pen to trace where I wanted to cut the towel. I made sure to leave room for the towel to be wrapped around the inner ring.
Then I cut the towel out. I turned the towel and wreath form over so I could glue the towel to the wreath form. I put hot glue on the edge of the towel and wrapped it around the inner ring of the wreath.
Once all edges of the towel were glued to the inner ring, I started cutting strips of burlap to wrap around the other rings. I used a piece of burlap that was starting to unravel a bit and wanted it to have a more rustic look. I wrapped the strips around the rest of rings on the wreath. I used hot glue to secure the burlap at the beginning and the end of the wrapping.
I wanted to make a fabric bow to put on the wreath. I already had some fabric strips cut so I gathered those so that there were loops on both ends of the bow. Once I had all that I wanted I used a small piece of brown wire to secure the bow in the middle. and fluffed the bow to get how I wanted it to look. I added a small pinecone in the middle of the bow.
Then I used hot glue to attach the bow to the wreath.
This is a super simple wreath and you could customize it with your favorite towel, burlap, and fabric!! Comment below if you give this a try!

I love making wreaths and enjoy them as decor for inside and outside. I had an extra large burlap wreath from a craft show and wanted to remake it. My goal was to make it a wreath I could have as wall decor inside all year. This is what the wreath looked like originally!
I realized this fit perfectly in the hallway at the top of my stairs and wanted to redecorate it! I took off the flowers and bow first.
Since I want to keep this up all year, I didn’t want to glue in any decorations so that I can change out the flowers and decorations. The color of the burlap makes it easy to match with a lot of different decorations. I bought this greenery at Hobby Lobby during a sale and love the way it looked with this wreath.
To decorate the wreath with this greenery i first cut the stems and took apart the sprigs. I tucked the sprigs in throughout the wreath in the frame and in the burlap. I love this because it is something you can add flowers to or take out the leaves and add in new greenery.
