Rustic Harvest Wreath

Think outside the box when it comes to your wreath forms! You won’t believe what I used to make this rustic fall harvest wreath.

Confession from a wreath addict: I’ve made another one!

I can’t help it, you guys. I love making new wreaths! I just find more doors to put them on. This time it’s my potting shed door. My new patio was begging for some fabulous fall decor, and that includes a Rustic Harvest Wreath. I upcycled an nontraditional item to get the project going, and I love the final result!

rustic wreath supplies
Supplies:
5″ storm collar
metal monogram ornament (Michael’s)
plaid fabric
faux wheat (Hobby Lobby)
wire

Ignore the leaves. I did not use them in the end. Simple was better!

I stumbled across the storm collar at Lowes. Isn’t it gorgeous in all it’s metal-scallopyness?? They come in various sizes, and I knew it would come in handy when I bought it on a whim one day.

wheat wreath
Select ~14 stalks of wheat to divide in half and lay cross ways over the bottom of the storm collar.

Attach by wrapping the stalks with wire.

diy big bow
I love the way my friend Bev at Flamingo Toes created a ribbon for one of her recent wreaths! It’s ingenious, really. I used her technique to create the ribbon for this wreath.

Cut strips of fabric to make the ribbon on the wreath.

Bow
4 pieces of fabric: 8″ x 4″
Fold in half lengthwise and stitch along open end. Pull threads to create a ruffle. Repeat for the other 3 pieces of fabric

Ribbon
2 pieces of fabric: 7″ x 6″
Fold in half lengthwise wrong-side-out. Stitch closed along length of fabric. Keep end open to pull fabric back through right-side-out. Repeat for second piece of fabric.

Middle
1 piece of fabric: 8″ x 3″
Hem edges of fabric lengthwise by 1/4″.

big bow wreath
To create the ribbon, wrap two pieces of the bow around the wheat and storm collar. Hot glue the fabric together at the back of the wreath. Repeat with the last two piece of the bow by overlapping slightly with the first two pieces of fabric. Wrap the middle piece around the wreath, covering the edges of the bow. Hot glue in place. Hot glue the two ribbons to the back of the wreath.

drill metal hole
Drill a hole in the top of the wreath (~3/8″).

Cut a strip of fabric to make a loop for hanging the wreath. Pull the ends of the fabric through the hole from back to front. Tie the ends in a knot.

rustic harvest monogram wreath
Hang the monogram ornament over the fabric loop at the top of the wreath to center it in the middle of the wreath form.

Hang and you’re all set! I love the simplicity of this wreath!

fall patio decor
I love how it looks on my potting shed door! This Rustic Harvest Wreath is perfectly accented with a few mums and winter flowers. I just need to get a few more pumpkins and I’m good to go!

I love this wreath idea! I could not figure out what you used and never would have guessed a storm collar. Guess who is going to Lowe's today to buy one?? :) I'm pinning and sharing this great project on my FB page today!

Thank you, Paula! I still have no idea what you're *really* suppose to do with a storm collar. ;)
