My new obsession – mustard & slate, citron & charcoal, saffron & smoke – whatever you call it, it’s yellow & grey – and the combo is fabulous!
I am constantly pinning color combo’s that are my favorite & this is one of them that I am ALWAYS drawn too. Plus, I’m a little cuckoo for burlap too – so imagine my joy when I saw this beautiful yummy mustard color in burlap – joy oh joy!!! A fab wreath was in my future! I haven’t made a wreath in over a year…maybe it’s a fall thing that makes you want to be outside hanging one – who knows?!
Anywho – I’m lovin’ my new wreath. And, fret not – this is SERIOUSLY the easiest wreath to make – A NO SEW FALL WREATH!! No joke – I literally whipped it up in a hour sitting on my sewing room floor one night, as you may have seen already on Instagram. Doesn’t everyone pull out tools to make a wreath at 11pm?! lol no?! Inspiration hit me, so I went with it and created this with tools & supplies I already had in my sewing room. I am the ultimate, on-a-whim crafter. I usually have a loose plan, but rarely have the correct supplies – so I usually utilize what I already have because I never know where things will take me when I’m crafting. I’m soooo not a crafting planner. I’m a planner in EVERY OTHER aspect of my life…but not this ;)
So, what made me inspired at 11pm?! Why, perusing Pinterest, and drooling over yellow & grey things, of course ;)
So, back to the wreath in a moment (the tutorial is after these messages ;), but first – let’s talk MORE yellow & grey, shall we?!

And here’s that tutorial, so now you can have a matching wreath for your new bag right?! ;)
- Styrofoam extruded wreath (I used this 12” one)
- 4” wide grey microfiber (it has to have a little stretch in it to sit closer to the wreath for wrapping) fabric strips
- 6” wide mustard burlap ribbon (I got mine here)
- beading pins – 14-7/8 inch
- tidy pins – 1-1/4 inch
- 3 large (3/4”) brass beads (mine are random vintage ones I had laying around – but these ones are similar)
- 6 small (1/2”) brass beads (again, mine are random vintage ones – but these ones are similar)
- fabric scissors
- aluminum craft wire
- wire cutters
- quilter’s pins – 1-3/4 inch
*note: the amount of fabric, beading pins, and tidy pins will depend on the size of your Styrofoam wreath
- Start by the wrapping fabric strips around the wreath securing them along the way with the beading pins.
- Wrap, overlapping the fabric strips, and pin until finished (the right pic is the back view – some pins will show, but they are on the back so they won’t be in view :)
- The flowers are next and are just super-simple bunched together flowers. I just bunched fabric together trying to create a circle – I didn’t use a template – I just did them randomly using a 4” fabric strip for each flower. Need some inspiration or a tutorial? Have a gander at my “flower power” Pinterest board – I’ve pinned quite a few :)
- Next, pin the flowers on the completed wreath with the beading pins, overlapping them as you go.
- Thread the tidy pins through the beads, bending them to fit through, and then bending them down around the bead.
- Place them in the centers of the flowers like shown, piercing the foam, kind of like a tack.
- Using the burlap ribbon, create a large bow, with two loops on each side. Secure with craft wire. Trim craft wire. Cut a small strip of burlap to wrap around the center.
- Secure ribbon to wreath with quilter’s pins (the yellow heads will hold the burlap better & will camouflage with the ribbon ;)
And voilà! A fab NO SEW fall wreath!
