Hi kids! We hope you had a great weekend – we sure did. We kept the projects minimal and got to spend some great family time together. I am not sure about you guys, but the weather here has been beautiful! Fall is definitely in the air and we are so happy about it!
One of the projects I was able to was able to wrap up this weekend was a DIY Fall wreath for the inside of our front entry door. If you remember, we recently painted the inside of our front door black, and I couldn’t wait to decorate it for Fall.
This is my first attempt at making a wreath from scratch. I was able to get all the supplies from local fabric and hobby stores.
I decided to wrap the hay wreath with this awesome burlap wired ribbon. Since it is wired, it was relatively easy to wrap around the wreath and keep it in place.
I glued the last bit of ribbon to the back of the wreath with hot glue.
I also purchased an orange and burgundy berry garland to add to the wreath. I carefully untwisted each strand so at the end, I have about ten single berry strands.
I kept the main strand that the smaller berry strands were attached to so I could use it to adhere each strand to the wreath. Catch my drift? This way I wouldn’t have to hot glue anything else, and I could always remove the berries to add something different.
After the wreath was completed, I used orange wired ribbon to hang the wreath on the door. I added a fancy silver command hook to the very top of the door (let’s hope it actually removes cleanly from the door – I wouldn’t want to have touch ups), and hung the wreath from there.
Here it is with the black door.
It’s tough taking a photo of anything against that door!! I think it’s time to read a how-to book on our SLR.
Are you adding any wreaths to your home this Fall?
