In the past, I have never been one to have a wreath on my door anytime except for Christmas, much less try to make one myself. This year though, I wanted to be different and make the door look like “Fall” because I’m so excited that Fall is actually here! I was at my local craft store and I saw the things that I wanted to use and then I had to figure out how to put it all together. I have to admit, it wasn’t as easy as I thought it would be and I did get some help from the wreath maker in the family, my Mom. In the end, I have a fall wreath along with some pumpkins near the front door to celebrate fall!
I started out by taking a straw wreath and wrapping it in this burlap ribbon that I found for 50% off at the craft store. I used hot glue to make sure it was attached and stayed tight as I wrapped it around the wreath.
I then found some really nice orange ribbon that had a bit of shimmer in it and it was also on sale. I wrapped it around the wreath for a pop of color and attached it as well with hot glue. This was a bit more tricky in that the hot glue was melting this fabric a little if I used to much.
It was time to start putting on some Fall accessories. I found this bag of colored leaves that I wanted to incorporate so I put some on the lower part of the wreath and attached them with hot glue. I also found this pumpkin at the dollar store and knew that for $1, I had to use it on this wreath! It took a lot of hot glue to get the pumpkin to stay on and I also used some acorns to hold up the pumpkin so it would sit correctly on the wreath.
