Fall-ish Fabric Burlap Wreath

Fall-ish. Because Fall-ish is a word ya know. ;-)

Fall. Blogs have been talking about it coming for weeks. I refused to acknowledge any sense of a fall season until our temperatures dropped below 100. Well, guess what? They finally have! A cold front moved in Saturday and with it lows in the 60s and highs in the upper 70s. Absolutely gorgeous is the only way to describe the past two days. It definitely feels like Fall and to celebrate we spent a lot of time outside this weekend instead of inside. It was glorious.

So, today I have a burlap covered wreath to share with you that I made as a gift for a soon to be cousin in law. Burlap always reminds me of Fall. Actually to be more exact, it always reminds me of scarecrows, which makes me think of Fall. The fabric I chose for the pennants has some great fall hues too.

To create this wreath, I purchased a straw wreath at the dollar store and hot glued burlap around it. Then to embellish the wreath, I whipped up a small pennant banner, some fabric rosettes, added a couple of vintage buttons (that I wish I'd gotten a better close up of), and the monogram S, because her last name will soon begin with the letter S.

There she is. Easy-peasy!

In the center of the blue rosette is
one of those cool vintage buttons.

Pretty sure I'll be using the pennant fabric soon for some projects to keep.

So, what about you? Has Fall arrived where you live yet? I hope so. And, I hope you'll enjoy plenty of mild temperatured days before Winter arrives!

I'll be linking up to these fabulous link parties this week. Hope you have some time to check out all the other cool fall projects going on!
