Fall Wreath

Can’t get more creative than that for a title, eh? Fall wreath, the end.

That’s right, today I am sharing my new fall wreath.  Maybe by hanging this on my front door, I can miraculously make this heat wave disappear?  Go away heat, my wreath says it’s fall!

Okay enough jibber jabber, let’s get to the good stuff!  We are coming up on week #2 of our Get Your DIY on Fall Party Challenge and guess what our theme is? Fall wreaths!

I really love all the fresh new ideas in wreaths that are floating around the blogosphere, but I must have cut class the day they were going over all that at craft college. For this challenge, I couldn’t  dream up anything other than your traditional mainstream fall wreath.

And here is her big debut:

I made this one very similar to my DIY Summer Wreath.  I purchased all of my stems at Michaels and  I picked up the wreath for $1.98 at the thrift store.

I finished my wreath off with a pretty bow.  If you aren’t sure how to make a bow, here’s a quick how-to that you can pin and save for later:

Be sure to cut your wire long enough to wrap around your wreath so you can attach it when you’re done.

And that’s it! I think she turned out quite pretty!

I love all the different textures.

  18. Congratulations…this post was featured on Create It Thursday #21! Thanks so much for sharing such a fabulous idea last week!

  19. Great wreath! I ran across your post on Nifty Thrifty Sunday. I’ve been struggling a bit with my wreath since I made the mistake of giving my grapevine wreath to Goodwill. Never again! The photos with the tips are really helpful.

    • Thanks, Barb! This is pretty simple to put together once you see it broken down. If all else fails, make a great bow and it will hide any imperfections and make it look fabulous 🙂

  20. Love your wreath! I always have such a hard time putting them together, but you did a beautiful job!

    • Thanks, Allison! I think the hardest part of making a wreath for me is making sure it looks balanced. Making one like this with everything on one side eliminates that! Thanks for stopping by 🙂
