Wreath Class at Peach Palette

My friend Nicole and I went to the Peach Palette last week to make a fall wreath. The wreath they set out advertising the class caught my eye because it was made of burlap and cotton bolls with a beautiful brown striped bow – right up my alley!

The class was in the evening. We dropped Leighton off at my mom’s and headed over for a girls’ night! (This was the first time I had really left Leighton. It was only for three hours, but we found he’s not so fond of a bottle.)

We started with a big roll of burlap that we wrapped around a straw wreath.

Once we wrapped the wreath, we started putting on the poofy parts. Mrs. Jane, the instructor, showed us how.

Mrs. Jane showed us how to make a bow. Unfortunately, they didn’t have the brown stripe, but we mixed colored ribbon with a burlap, and it was also very pretty!

Then we added the cotton. Some people used leaves or sunflowers, but I wanted the harvest theme!
