As the air is getting cooler (kinda-the forecast here for today is 85 degrees) I have started to decorate for fall and put out my lovely fall wreath. It was really complicated making it-NOT! I decided instead of a useless tutorial I would just give you some tips I have found while making different wreaths.
1. Make sure your wreath an stand up to the weather.
2. Make it interesting! Use an interesting pattern, embellishments, or color variation.
3. Don't spend a ton of money. I almost always shop at Michael's mostly because of location but there are always coupons. There are always sales on stems. This wreath the flowers were 50% off and I used a coupon for the grapevine wreath. I paid less than $10 for the whole wreath. The picture below is a great alternative to buying a wreath form.
4. Make sure things are secure! Use LOTS of glue.
5. Do a little at a time and hold it back to make sure you can see where things need to be added or taken away.
For this wreath all I did was get the stems and pull the heads off the flowers. I glued them in place. I took some leaves from the stems and glue them at the edge of the flowers. There is a thin ribbon bow at the bottom you can't see in the picture. Mostly that is because you could see me in in the reflection in the glass. My neighbors already had to see me in my pjs no one else has to :)
Remember the fun summer wreath I made at J&M's?
Do you have any other wreath tips?! Happy Fall!
