Fall Wreath

I think one of my favorite decorating projects is making wreaths.  Nothing makes a front door more inviting than a beautiful wreath.  As I have been on Pinterest EVERY day, I have notice a lot of burlap ribbon in many holiday designs.  So, I decided to make a wreath using burlap ribbon, and I really liked how it turned out.  
 Instead of separate fall picks, I purchased four fall floral stems.  I trimmed the stem and then wove it into the grapevine wreath.  I wove several of the smaller branches into the wreath to hold it tight and secure. 
I love how the greenery extends past the grapevine wreath.  It makes the wreath look airy and beautiful.
 Aren't these grapevine pumpkins adorable?  I have found several uses for them in my fall decorating!
Here is my new favorite find!  Burlap adds such a unique texture for this bow!
I love fall!
 Well, that was my weekend project.  Fox news of Atlanta is coming by tomorrow to take some photos of my front porch.  So, I better get some sleep, because I have some serious cleaning to do tomorrow!

Your wreath is the prettiest I've seen in a long time, and I look around a lot! Would you please share with us where to buy the Burlap ribbon and the Grapevine pumpkins?

I haven't been able to find locally and may have to drive 70+ miles---but I would! Janie (1 jlparsons@gmail.com)

Jennifer said...

Hey Janie, I found the burlap ribbon and pumpkins at Hobby Lobby. I found the pumpkins in the floral section. They were actually a floral stem! Good Luck! Thanks for stopping by!

Shauna@Satori Design for Living said...

Love the burlap on your wreath and I think I'll add some texture to my fall decorating doing something like this as well. I've decorated my porch a bit, but I definitely need to add a bit more to make it more interesting!
