How To Make A Fall Wreath

Happy September 1st! 
I am so happy September is finally here.

I wanted a new fall wreath for our front door.

A trip to Hobby Lobby yielded a new grapevine wreath, ribbon and some pumpkin picks. 

Ribbon and grapevine

I love the faux feathers on them.

The wreath was full price but everything else was either 40 or 50 percent off.
You just have to love that about Hobby Lobby.


If you would like to make a wreath, you will need florist wire and wire cutters.

Weave the ends of the picks into the grapevine and secure with wire if needed.

I put the green pumpkin in between the two orange pumpkins.
The acorn and pinecones picks were perfect for each end.

I used two different ribbons to make a layered bow.

Pinch the ribbon in the center and wrap with wire.

Choose where you would like the bow and attach it with the wire.

I added another gauzy green bow to finish it off.

This will look great on our front door this fall.

I have exciting news.
 I want to invite you to a fall blog tour featuring 20 Texas bloggers.
On October 3rd, I will kick things off and escort you through some of the best blogs in Texas.
Each talented blogger will feature a fall related post.
Check in with me each morning during the week of the 3rd - 7th for the links for each days featured blogs.

  15. This wreath is so pretty and easy! I make wreaths all the time but not ever this easy. I love the feathers on the picks. They add such whimsy. Also I have never used 3 different ribbons together...so pretty!
