Lay the fabric flat on a flat surface. Lay the wire wreath frame, outward curve up, on one of the short ends of the burlap. Begin pulling the center of the fabric up through the middle of the frame to about 2 inches tall. Push the burlap through the back of the frame with one hand and pull with the other hand. Pull burlap through the openings on both sides of the center. Push the burlap layers that you have pulled through against one of the wire section dividers on the frame. Repeat the process and press the pulled burlap against the last layer. Continue until you have reached the starting point.

Trim away any excess burlap from the back. Gather the loose ends together and tape down with duct tape. Turn the wreath over and adjust the layers of burlap as necessary.

Add fall inspired embellishments like feathers and wheat shucks to the front of the wreath with a hot glue gun. Glue the final embellishments on the underside of one of the burlap flaps to hide the glue.

Add a wide ribbon to the top center of the wreath to hang.
