Welcome to Autumn, it’s fall, y’all! (I can say that, I am from Louisiana. It’s sort of like when I lived up North and said “you guys” all of the time.) There is something about the season changing; the fall weather, and beautiful Autumn leaves that get’s me excited about the changes that come with it.
I love to decorate with the seasonal change, and this year I made a beautiful Autumn Wreath to share with you. Believe it or not, I didn’t use glue, wire, or anything you don’t already have in possession at home.
- wired ribbon
- safety pin
- wreath form
- and about 15 minutes of your time (YES, I said 15 minutes)
The first thing I did to make this wreath was take my form and add in my autumn leaves. I wanted to share the beautiful fall colors and make this the base for my wreath. I worked the long stems into the wreath form and then used my snippers to cut the extra length.
After I made the base of my wreath with the leaves, I then took my berries and did the same. I worked them into the wreath form and around the leaves and placed them exactly where I wanted. After placement, I again took the snippers and cut the remaining stems.
Once the berries were on, I added in the hydrangea, and did as before. Believe it or not, working these in without the wire works well when you are using this wreath form like I am showing. They stay in place very well.
After the hydrangea, I made the bow, placed a safety pin in the middle, and then worked the fall wired ribbon into a a nice formed shape. All finished! But maybe not…
After taking all of the pictures with the wreath I decided there was another little touch I would like to add. Remember the Spring/Summer Hydrangea Monogrammed wreath made a few months ago? Since I was taking it down, I decided to use the monogram and place it on this wreath.
I think the monogram goes well with the colors and gives it that special personalization. What do you think? I LOVE it. If you like this wreath as much as I do, make sure to hover over the picture and PIN it!
I hope you liked this quick tutorial. Let’s all welcome the changes to our trees, the autumn leaves, and the new season upon us. Happy Autumn.
