Fall Wreath on a Budget

I have been wanting to make a wreath for our front door
and pretend like it is Fall outside. 
Since I am married to a graduate student...
decorating is not the highest priority on my husband's budget. 
I looked at a lot of different ideas on Pinterest
and I came up with this gem...

Supplies: 
Wreath(preferably straw, covered in plastic wrap) $3.99
Yarn $3.99
Glue- I used wood because I already had it.
Felt squares 5/$1.00
ribbon $0.50
Wreath hanger (normally I would just nail it in but our door isn't wood) $3.99
total: $13.50
(Everything was purchased at Michael's)

First. 
Wrap the wreath in yarn. 
I used a brush and spread the plastic wrap with glue
then wrapped the yarn.
 Don't be fooled by this step, it took me 1.5 hours

Next.
Decorate however you'd like. 
I did felt flowers.
Cut the felt in a circle, then make curly-cues (see below)
Then wrap it around itself into a flower.

Apply the flowers with glue.
I just used wood glue here too.

Final product. 
I am excited to put it on the front door.
And pretend there are lots of fall leaves outside!

  2. I love this! I made one like this for spring, but I used one of those foam wreath forms...I like this one better! Where did you get it? Or did you make it? I like that it's thicker than the foam ones! Too cute!
