Changing A Burlap Wreath From Fall To Christmas

Tonight’s blog post is a quick and simple one, because I have a little DIY project that I am planning to start on in a few minutes.  Hopefully it turns out the way I plan and I can share it soon!  Some of you may have seen the burlap wreath I made for fall.  If not, you can see that post by clicking here.  Basically all I did to add a little Christmas to my wreath  was to change out the flowers and the bow.  I am going to let you in on a little secret.  I have no freaking idea how to make a bow!  I guess I really need to learn that, don’t I?  I am sure there are tons and tons of tutorials online, yet I still don’t have a clue as to how to make one.  So I buy most of my bows, unless I think it will look good with just a very simple bow that I can do that is like tying my shoe!  So for the wreath I bought a two pack of glittery bows at AC Moore, a little twig like things with a glittery little bird, a pinecone, some glittery greenery, and some gold leaves.  Super simple and super cheap.  But it turned out kinda cute!
This is the fall version.  This bow I made myself.  This is a far as my bow making skills go. 

And this is the Christmas version. 


Can you tell I bought a new camera in the time between the fall wreath and the Christmas wreath?  MUCH better pictures! 

Update:  See this wreath decorated for every season, and every way I have changed it out here.
