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.
Large Embroidery Hoop, I used an 18 inch one from Hobby Lobby
Garland, I used 2 Strands of Garland
Decorations of Your Choice
This is a really simple craft, but an awesome way to use your left over or favorite garlands! All you have to do is zip tie the garland to the front of the embroidery hoop. I used a lot of zip ties to be sure that it was secure, but made sure the zip tie was right next to the branches to cover it.
I ended up pulling the ends to the back of the wreath to make it easier to cut the excess with my wire cutters.
Once I secured both the garland all the way around the hoop, I started decorating! I pulled apart these green berries and snow covered greenery from last Christmas and stuck them in all around the wreath! You could add your favorite winter ornaments, floral decor, or pine cones.
This was such a fun wreath to make and would be a great base for lots of different decorations!
The sun hat I sad was stitched together. So I use scissors to cut part of the seam. Once the seam is cut you can then pull the thread and the sun hat will unravel!
Once the hat is all unraveled you can then start wrapping the material around your wreath. I used hot glue to secure the beginning of the material around the wreath. Then you can start wrapping the rest of the material.
Once you have wrapped the whole wreath you can use hot glue to secure the end of the material.
I love how this wreath turned out!! Will definitely be making more!
I used Americana decor for this wreath. I used floral wire to secure the berry branches and hot glue for the flowers.
I hope you will give this wreath a try! Comment below with your favorite sun hat crafts!!
Artificial flowers and leaves, I used burlap leaves from Hobby Lobby
Hot Glue Gun & Hot Glue Sticks
This is a simple wreath to make and can also be used as a space to hang notes and lists. I love how it turned out!!
I used a jute wreath and covered it with chicken wire. To do this I cut the chicken wire with wire cutters to be the general shape of a circle with enough excess to wrap around the the edges of the wreath. I squished the excess chicken wire down around the jute wreath. You can use work gloves if your skin is sensitive to the poking of the wire.
I wanted to repurpose fabric scraps in this projects. I weaved the fabric strips around the jute wreath and in between the chicken wire. To secure the fabrics strips I used a hot glue gun. I didn’t have to use a ton of hot glue, just a bit at the beginning and end of each strip. I love how all the different colors of fabric look! You could also pick certain colors of fabric if you wanted the colors to be more coordinated.
I then glued a few artificial flowers on the wreath! I was so excited to use these green flowers!
Hope you give this a try!! I have this wreath hanging inside my entry way and am so excited to hang quotes, notes and cards on it!!
