A Simple Fall Twig Wreath

We recently put a new front door on and it totally changes the look of our home but I still need to choose a color and paint it.As I was mowing the lawn and glancing every so often at the new door,it seemed to me to be missing something (other than paint) lol.It got me to thinking that a simple Fall wreath would do the trick.So down into my craft room I went to construct a very easy and seasonal wreath.
All you will need is a sturdy twig wreath
Hot glue gun
Varied sizes of pine cones
Dollar store trimmings and ribbon. I just tore apart an old wreath and got out my Fall decorations from last year and started hot gluing pine cones and old leaf garland that I cut up. When I was done gluing everything I made a ribbon from some ribbon that I got at the dollar store,thats it! Now all I have to do is buy a wreath hanger and hang it outside.

Your wreath is perfect or Fall. Love how the ribbon is flowing over the wreath. Very pretty!

that's lovely, Diedre. It's 90 degrees here today so I'm having a hard time thinking about fall right now. But it will be here before I know it and I can't wait!!

Looks great! I'm so ready to start putting out fall decorations but we have a rule that we have to wait until September 1. Not too much longer!

That wreath is gorgeous! You are talented! I may try to make this and get the dust off of my glue gun.
