I would say that fall is in the air, but it has been in the high 90’s here for a week now! So needless to say it is kind of hard to pull out the pumpkins, mums and fall decor just yet. I just want to go back to the beach!
Because I live in the coastal south we tend to ease into fall rather softly, but I like to add a few transitional late summer/early fall decor items. Today I want to show you how to make a super easy Early Fall Wreath that you can use either indoors or out.
In addition to the wreath tutorial today, I’ve teamed up with 12 other blog friends to bring you our annual Autumn Abounds Blog Hop and tomorrow we will all be hosting a fall linky party AND a nice CASH GIVEAWAY for all our readers! Don’t you want some cash to spend for your fall decorating? Woo hoo!
We’re going with greens, buttery creams, and browns for a color palette.
To make this wreath you will need the following items:
- 1 wispy grape vine wreath
- 1 cream gerbera daisy floral bunch
- 1 fall floral bunch with lotus pods
- wire cutters
- silk butterflies
Step 2) I always find that if I hang my wreath on a door (inside… obviously) then decorating it is much easier vs. just laying it on a table. Follow the directions in the picture below. Trim an excess wires as you find necessary. Feel free to use hot glue to secure if desired. (I personally do not use hot glue because I usually like using the wreath again for another season. But if you need to, then do!)
I love how this wreath turned out! It’s perfect for our area of the country without screaming pumpkins and orangey fall. Oh trust me… that will be coming soon… just not quite yet. The temps need to at least drop below 80 before I pull out a pumpkin! 😉
