Buffalo Plaid Fall Wreath
It is no secret: I love the look of a small Buffalo check plaid. Heck, I would probably have an accent wall in a Buffalo plaid if I wasn’t terrified of wallpaper. It’s an irrational fear, I know.
This holiday season, I’m incorporating both khaki Buffalo check fabric and black and white Buffalo check fabric into my decor. From gnome ornaments to wreaths, I’m using this eye-catching fabric in small projects to tie a few rooms together.
But before we get to the other fun Buffalo check DIYs, let’s start on this adorable Buffalo check Fall wreath using an embroidery hoop.
Supplies for This Fun Buffalo Plaid Project
I used a smaller hoop because my wreath is for a cabinet door, but you can make it as large as you’d like.
- 9-inch embroidery hoop
- 1/2 yard khaki Buffalo check plaid flannel fabric
- khaki 2-inch wide
- orange satin 1-inch wide
- white raffia
- jute string
- click here for the free “Happy Fall” SVG file (also available: DXF, PNG, and EPS files)
- vinyl (we used a dark brown adhesive – not heat transfer because I didn’t have any brown) ;)
- Fall embellishments (I used orange berries and a miniature pinecone pick)
- scissors, hot glue gun, tape measure
How to Make a Buffalo Check Fall Wreath
If you prefer a video tutorial to show how I tuck the edges of the Buffalo plaid fabric or create the simple bow, for example, scroll up. It’s a really fun wreath to make and doesn’t take much time at all.
- Download the Happy Fall cut file and upload to your design space. Cut the desired size onto brown vinyl (I sized the “Happy” at 5-inches for my 9-inch wreath).
- Disconnect the two pieces of the embroidery hoop and lay the small hoop on a flat surface. Place your fabric right-side up on top of that and then place the large hoop piece on. Tighten after positioning the fabric – you want straight lines.
- Cut ribbons for the world’s easiest bow! Cut the following ribbon sizes and layer them as shown in the video. Tie them with the jute string and set aside.
- 2 x 9-inch (or size of your hoop) khaki ribbon
- 2 x 9-inch orange ribbon
- 2 x 10-inch white raffia
- 1 x 9-inch jute string
- Transfer the vinyl to your fabric, making sure it adheres well. You can see how I did it in the video.
- Grab your hot glue gun, snip a small orange piece of ribbon, and cover the center of the bow with it. Attach your bow to the wreath, snip the ends, embellish, and hang.
