Burlap Wreath for Fall

So glad you could stop by for a cup of tea today. I want to share with you a wreath I created this weekend.
 
It seems Burlap is the trend in decorating these days, so when I wanted to change up the decor in my office for the Fall season I decided on Burlap.  It was so easy to work with and I'm very happy with the result.
 
I stumbled upon this post awhile back and remembered the pool noodle trick, I thought it was Genious!!!
 
So this is how my wreath started out....

 Next I wrapped with burlap,
 
and fashioned some burlap roses,

Thinking it needed a little "something" I came upon a stem of some sort of wildflower & twig that I most likely purchased at a dollar store...a leftover from another project.

It added that little hint of Fall color I needed.

Today is a perfect Fall day here in central Illinois....blue skies, temperatures in the 70s, gorgeous!
