I must say I LOVE LOVE LOVE this time of year! There is nothing like fall in New England. (Of course, there is nothing like winter in New England either, but we’re not going to think about that right now, are we?) Everywhere you turn there are trees that you never even knew existed all of a sudden showing off absolutely stunning shades of yellow, orange, and red. It is breathtakingly beautiful!
I love to have a festive DIY wreath on my door for every holiday and season. The problem is that I don’t have enough room to store all those wreaths, because wreaths take up so much room! My solution to this is to make my wreaths interchangeable, that way at the end of the season I can just take everything off the wreath form and reuse it for the next holiday. The only things I need to store are a few accessories!
I used pins to secure the flowers to this DIY fall burlap wreath so that I can easily remove them and change them out in a few weeks for the next holiday! You can check out some of the recent versions of my interchangeable wreath below.
ONE WREATH… SO MANY POSSIBILITIES!
If you don’t want to make your DIY fall burlap wreath interchangeable, you can just glue everything down instead of pinning it. Too easy! Now onto the good stuff…
Materials Needed to Create DIY Fall Burlap Wreath
This post contains affiliate links. For more information, see my disclosure.
- Wreath form
- Flowers, leaves, & other fall decorations
- Ribbon for bow
*A note about the materials: The wreath I used was actually a straw wreath. Let’s just pretend that I didn’t go through all the trouble to wrap it in yarn only to change my mind and end up wrapping it with burlap, ok? If you use a straw wreath, you obviously don’t need to wrap it with yarn, but leave the plastic on to make it easier to wrap.
Also, burlap ribbon is easier to use if you have it, but if not you can use burlap fabric and cut it into strips, like I did. Check out my tutorial on how to cut burlap if you want to get nice, straight strips that won’t fray.
Steps to Create DIY Fall Burlap Wreath
1. Glue the end of your burlap to the back of the wreath. Wrap the burlap around the wreath. If your strips aren’t long enough, just glue a new one to the back where the last one ended and keep wrapping until the entire wreath is wrapped with burlap.
2. Pull your flowers off the stems and cut the little ends off so they are as flat as possible.
3. Arrange your flowers and leaves on the wreath until it looks the way you want it to. I did a bottom layer of leaves underneath to give the wreath some depth as well as hide any burlap that might show between the flowers.
5. Pin the flowers and leaves down. You can hide the pins under the flower petals like in the picture below. I used about two pins for every flower. It also helps if you use pins that are similar in color to your flowers. Secure any other decorations you want to add with pins, and check to make sure that all the pins are hidden.
6. Make a bow out of your ribbon and use pins to secure it to the top of the wreath. If you need help making a bow, check out this tutorial.
7. Hang your wreath! I braided some raffia and wrapped it in a loop to hang my wreath. If you don’t have raffia, you can use the same ribbon you used for your bow. I use these magnetic wreath hangers to hang my wreaths so there’s no damage to the door or weather stripping.
And there you have it, a beautiful DIY interchangeable fall burlap wreath that you can use for every holiday and season! For some reason my red flowers are looking pink in the pictures, but I promise it looks much more fall themed in person!
I can’t lie, I will be slightly sad when I have to take the flowers and leaves off in a few weeks to change it out. I hate to see fall go!

Such a great idea!! I love wreaths so much but they do take up so much room! Having one to change every season is a great idea! I’d love to have you come over and link your post up to my craft party which starts at 7pm EST. and is new every Thursday! I also pin every post!
Thanks, Denise! I will be sure to stop by your link party. I love meeting other bloggers and seeing what they’ve been up to!
Beautiful wreath and with a bonus of changing it out for seasons/holidays! Love It.
Thank you for sharing with us at Brag About It!
Thanks so much, Laurie! I love seeing what everyone is up to at your link party!
What a great idea! One wreath for all season 🙂
Thanks Helen! I try to make a lot of my holiday decor interchangeable so I don’t have to store much. Glad you found this helpful!
Thanks for linking up to Home Matters Party. #HomeMattersParty http://cu-rio.net/home-matters-linky-party-63/
Thanks! I always checking out other blogs at link parties!
This is such a great idea! I love the thought of being able to use the same wreath throughout different seasons. So much better than my tote of wreaths downstairs!
Thanks for linking up with the FrugalMommas team!
Thanks! I know, wreaths can take up so much space. Glad you found this helpful!
This is such an amazing idea! Thanks for sharing it. I’m Anita visiting from Worthwhile Wednesdays.
Thanks, Anita! So glad you stopped by!
Beautiful wreath! So pretty you can display it year round–then you won’t need to take those flowers off! Lol. Thank you for sharing at Merry Monday!
Aww thank you! I will be a bit sad to take the flowers off, but will probably forget all about it once it is all nice and pretty for Christmas, haha!
So cute! I love this…very festive!
Thanks for joining Cooking and Crafting with J & J!
This is really pretty. I like the vibrancy of the flowers you picked out. And it will be easy to change it out for the next season.
Thanks, Mary! I wanted to make it pretty and colorful for fall, so I think it turned out really well. I’ll be changing it out soon for Christmas!
Thanks for sharing at the Inspiration Spotlight Party. Pinned & shared. Hope to see you again soon.
Thank you so much! I will definitely be back soon!
Has anyone tried this idea with a cemetery wreath. I was wondering how it would work or what changes would need to be made.
June, this would probably work nicely as a cemetery wreath. You can decorate it with whatever flowers you want for the holiday or season, and you could even personalize it by adding a monogram letter or name. I think it would definitely be a beautiful way to honor your loved one!
I love that it’s interchangeable so that you don’t have 10 wreathes to keep track of! It’s beautiful!
Thank you! I find it particularly helpful so I don’t have to store a bunch of bulky wreaths!
This looks great! I’ve only ever made a Christmas wreath (partially because of the space needed to store it), but this is the perfect alternative. Thanks for linking up with #smallvictoriessunday 🙂
Thanks, Suzanna! An interchangeable wreath would be perfect for you so that you don’t have to store a different wreath for every holiday!
This turned out so cute – I love the fact that it is interchangeable, I appreciate that since I have limited space to store things. The colors are too cute. Thanks for sharing at Welcome Home Wednesday!
Thank you! I love making interchangeable holiday decor! It means I get to display lots of festive decorations without having to worry about storing it all!
