52 in 1: WEEK 17 - burlap fall wreath

I am so ready for fall. The air is nice and cool and I've been burning pumpkin candles for a few days. While visiting for my birthday, my mom jokingly remarked how I still had a (spring) forsythia wreath on my front door. I had figured I could stretch it through the summer, but for fall it was a no-go.

(Please excuse the icky country blue door... one of the downfalls of renting!)

I had been wanting to make a wreath like this for awhile now. I thought a fall wreath using burlap would be perfect! I love the ruffles.

Special note: If you have any anxiety about cleanliness and/or psychology-major-self-diagnosed OCD, don't use burlap.  Use another kind of fabric.  Just trust me.  Or just have the vacuum very close to you at all times.

I was so excited to find that I had a whole box of fall picks from last year that I had completely forgotten about.

Love it! Happy {almost} fall!
