Fold and pin your next burlap petal next to, but semi-overlapping your first petal.
Keep folding and pinning your petals to your wreath form.
Always starting on the inside of the form and slightly overlapping each petal as you continue pinning them moving outward to the outer part of your wreath form. fold pin, fold, pin, and so on….
When you’ve almost completely covered your entire wreath form in overlapping petals, Pull up your first set of petals you attached and tuck your last set underneath and pin to finish.
ADDING EMBELLISHMENTS TO YOUR BURLAP PUMPKIN WREATH:
Now that you’ve finished the hard part, it’s time for some fun…
Take those Fall embellishments and start hot gluing them onto your wreath.
Whatever doesn’t stay with a little hot glue, I use some simple Sewing pins to better secure them onto the form.
*For this burlap pumpkin wreath I used the Chicken wire to form my stem and then pinned and hot glued to attach.
The I finished it off by attaching some green burlap ribbon, the burlap leaves, and then hot glued a lot more of the Fall Floral embellishments until I had it just the way I wanted it
In order to finish off your burlap pumpkin wreath, I typically use the last of my cut burlap squares and hot glue them to the back of the wreath form.
This is not a necessity, but I feel it’s part of the finishing touches and is also another way to help prevent any exposed burlap corners on the back of your wreath from fraying over time.
And there you have it! This petal technique is definitely a great way to use texture to add another level of visual interest in your wreaths.
