Fall Wreath

After completing my pumpkin topiary, I wanted a Fall wreath to go along with it. With the exception of the Dollar Tree ribbon used to hang the wreath, I created the wreath using Fall clearance items I purchased last year from Garden Ridge.




I used a large wire wreath form like the one above and used floral wire to add various strings of garland and ribbon to it. I then stuck some Fall picks through the wire. I wanted to make it so that I could easily deconstruct it and redo it for next year (or next month for that matter).




I knew that I had to hang the wreath so that I could still see through the peephole, so the Nester's method of hanging a wreath was the perfect solution for me.


Now I just need to find the perfect welcome mat to complete my Fall outdoor decor.

I am also linking up to my very first Fall Festival Party at the DIY Show Off!

Hi Annette...

I'm just coming from your pumpkin topiary post and had to see your fall wreath too! Girl, you have really decorated your entryway beautifully for fall! All of your guests will feel so welcomed!!! Love your fall wreath...it's gorgeous! Hmmm...I'm kind of wishing now that I had done mine on a similar wreath form...just so I could change it out! Maybe next time! This is a great idea and a beautifully done project! You're a talented lady! In fact, this is my first visit to your blog and I'm going to go take a little tour! Hehe! You have great style, my friend!

Warmest wishes,
Chari
