Autumn

Basic supplies from a big company store (cringe...)


Begin by wrapping the wired ribbon around the grapevine wreath. I used an entire roll of ribbon per wreath.Next take your stems of fall leaves and pull it apart gently, "fluffing" it out.


Gently but forcefully (?), push it into the wreath until it is completely secure.

I'm sure florists wire could be useful here...


Take your fall foliage/fruit pick and spread each stem apart gently, turning pieces so they look their best facing forward. Push it into the grapevine wreath on top of the fall leaves, taking care to arrange the two together until they look their best.


Attach pre-made and pre-wired bow to the bottom.


I'm definitely not a pro at this, but my two doors look happier and autumn-er. Cost was approx. $9 per wreath which could be less if you found the items on sale and made your own bows.

Your wreath looks gorgeous. I made a fall wreath several years ago, but unfortunately it is a jack-o-lantern wreath and we no longer celebrate Halloween. Your post inspires me to make some new autumn decor this week. :o)
