Fall Wreath with Burlap Flowers

6:30:00 AM

Well, it's September, so I feel like it's close enough to fall that I can start to share with you some of my fall decor! I started out with my artwork that was part of my package pal trade-off, but I have quickly moved on to decorating my door.

I found an orange grapevine wreath on clearance at Hobby Lobby about a month or so back. It was labeled as spring decor, which seemed a little strange to me, since I associate orange with fall, not spring, but I wasn't going to argue with the $1.59 price tag--especially when you see what the original tag said!

And then I started rummaging around in my craft storage and came up with two different types of sweet burlap flowers, and chalkboard sign, and some jute windowpane ribbon, all from the David Tutera Casual Elegance line.

I removed the wooden upright from the chalkboard sign and wove it into the grapevine.

I didn't want the sign to have anything that screamed "fall" yet--it seems a little silly with 90 degree heat around here--so we just wrote "hi!" on the sign. I'm claiming it is a sign of autumnal hospitality, and running with it. :-)

I then used the wire stems to weave the flowers into the wreath and tied a big bow with the windowpane jute ribbon. I love how that ribbon has wire in it! Be sure to do a dry run before you attach all the decorations to the wreath--you may not like the original layout--this was mine, and it just didn't work for me!

And that's it. I love how simple this wreath is, and yet it has amazing rustic appeal.

How are you decorating for fall? Are you waiting until the official calendar first day of fall, or have you had pumpkins out for a month? Do share!
