Colorful Fall Wreath

My front door needed some fall cheeriness so I gave myself a mission to make a wreath as inexpensively as possible. 
Here are my supplies:

Burlap: $2.39/yard  Used less than 1/4 yard=$.60
Wreath:  $.97 tubing from plumbing section of Home Depot.  Used 1/2=$.50  (Will talk more about this tubing in a post later this week.)
Flowers $1.00 for a bunch.  Used 2 bunches=$2.00
Total cost (without tax)=$3.10

First, I cut the tubing the size I wanted it and used packing tape tape the ends together to make a circle shape.  I cut the burlap into about 3 inch strips and wrapped it around the wreath frame. I used a glue gun to attach the burlap.   I then cut the flowers, arranged them how I wanted them, and glue gunned them on also. 


Now I come home and smile when I see my cheery, colorful wreath!



These are parties I link to:

So pretty! I really want to make a wreath for our door, but we have a beautiful door knocker that makes it hard to put a wreath on. Maybe I should move the door knocker?

Found you through the Weekend Wrap Up on Tatertots & Jello. Would love for you to swing by and link up your project with my {new} Whip it Up Wednesday handmade party.

Best,
Emily from Nap Time Is My Time
