Favorite Fall Wreaths

Favorite Fall Wreaths

Hello my lovely friends,

fall is definitely one of my favorite seasons.   I love it when the weather finally gets cooler and when the leaves start to change.  We don’t really have foliage in Florida which is a little unfortunate.  But I have come to love the Floridian signs of fall like when you can hear the cranes come down for the winter.  And of course I love decorating for fall.  I usually start a new season with a new wreath and this week I have teamed up with some amazing bloggers to share with you some pretty awesome fall wreaths.

Fall Wreaths – Step by Step guide

Here are the step by step instructions.  They are super easy and simple to follow and the best part is you can change each or skip a step.  There is no rhyme or reason to anything.

Step 1: Decide on initial layout

So I started the wreath by doing an initial layout.  Actually, I did that while I was still at Michael’s.  First of all, I randomly picked out the flowers and leave accessories that I liked.  Afterwards I placed them on the wreath to see what they would like together.  I quickly snapped a picture in the store so I could remember what it looked like.  As you can see my idea was to have leaves on one side and a letter on the other side.  I knew I wanted to add a bow to the top as well and we already had some ribbon for that at home.  (Didn’t my sisters boyfriend do such a good job holding up the wreath?)

Step 2: Add flowers and leaves

I started by sticking the flowers and leaves into the wreath whiling using the picture that I snapped as a guideline.  Obviously I ended up finding more fall decor right before we left which had to get added.  #StoryOfMyLife!!  Starting with the flowers on the top making my way down.  I always feel it is easier to start at the top and make your way down, just a preference but not a must.

Step 3: Cutting them Stems

After I was done with all the flowers and leaves I carefully turned the wreath over.  I used a pair of pliers to shorten the stems so that they wouldn’t stick out in the back.  With that you can ensure that the wreath will be hanging straight on the door and not be tilting over.

Step 4: paint the letter

So this step is totally optional.  I bought a monogram latter to add to the wreath.  It was a simple wood letter and I wanted it to be white since we had some leftover paint that we used for all our trims.  I applied two super light coats and let it try for 2 hours.  I added a “T” to every of our wreaths and I actually painted this one when I did the summer wreath.   So I don’t have pictures of me painting it but you get the point.

Step 5: Glue the letter onto wreath

Once the letter tried you can glue it onto the wreath.  I used a hot glue gun and applied some glue to the back of the letter.  I focused on the middle section of the “T” since I knew it would touch the wreath.  Afterwards I applied the glue, I just stuck it onto the wreath and hold it in place with some clamps. {I forgot to take a picture of that, bad blogger}

Step 6: Attach ribbon

This is another optional step.  The space between our door and the frame is super small so we can’t use a regular wreath holder.  As a workaround I always use a ribbon which also looks really nice on the front at least.  We use a magnetic clamp on the back of our door to hold the wreath in place which doesn’t look that nice.  Oh well,  we will fix that problem with the new door that hubby will be building when he gets back.  Since I have been doing it with all of our other wreath, I already had a piece cut to length.

 

Step 7: Create a bow and attach to wreath

So I added a bow to the wreath to make the ribbon look nice.  Creating a bow always seemed so hard to me, turns it out it is in fact super easy.  Especially with this tutorial here.  I created my bow almost identical except that I didn’t use a separate piece for the tail.  Instead I folded the tall piece over so that it would look like a bow.  I used a brown ribbon as the bigger part of the bow and a light beige as the smaller bow.  I created a circle with the light beige ribbon and placed it on the brown bow.  Afterwards I used a small piece of brown ribbon and wrapped it around the two bows.  I clued it together in the back and the glued the bow to the ribbon.  I added a pumpkin just for fun.
