Adults & Crafts Review - Autumn Wreath - September 2018
Adults & Crafts always includes Step by Step written project instructions.  I don’t always find them perfectly clear (I think it is difficult to write crafting instructions), but I can always figure out what to do.

The Project
Step #1 – Cut Burlap for Bow
Adults & Crafts Review - Autumn Wreath - September 2018The first step was to cut off an 18″ sectin from the roll of burlap and then cut that section into strips.  These instructions were super clear and easy to follow.  Cutting burlap is a tad messy, so I should have put down a piece of newspaper or something, but of course I didn’t.

Steps #2 & #3 – Make Bow
Using those strips I just cut, it was time to create the bow.  The instructions were very clear (basically it was just glueing and folding) right up until it was time to attach the “tail” of the bow.  I played around with a few options and ended up attaching the tail how I thought looked best.  It’s a craft subscription so there really aren’t any set “rules”.  You can be creative!

Steps #4 & #5 – Wrap Wreath in Burlap

Next up was wrapping the wreath in the remaining burlap.  I used everything left on the roll and tried to wrap it as tightly as possible no there wasn’t too much slack.  I hot glued the first and last sections to the wreath and then cut off the small amount of exvess and added more glue so it layed flat.

Step #6 – Add Flowers & Accessories

I added my flowers and accessories by cutting off the stems and either poking the wire through the burlap and straw wreath and / or hot glueing thing down.  I didn’t preplan how I was going top place everything out, I just went by what I thought looked good.  I ended up with one extra pinecone and ne extra leaf.  I used everything else!

Step #7 – Add Bow

The last step was to add the bow.  I debated not including the bow because I liked it so much the way it was, but I am glad I did.  It finished things off perfectly.

Final Thoughts
I think this was one of my all-time favorite Adults & Crafts projects.  I love how it turned out and just happened to need a new fall wreath anyway!  I think it took me 30-45 minutes in all, so even less than the one hour estimate.
