Loving Life after 50

Mantle Wreath for Fall

Tis that time of year again, a change of season means a required change in wreaths.  I have a wreath hanging over my fireplace and with a quick slight of hand and the assistance of some decomesh, maybe some burlap and a few other odds and ends it changes each season.

For this fall I decided to leave the burlap and cream decomesh.

Step one is to add some orange decomesh.  I find it best to follow a pattern of alternating loops.

adding the orange so that it overlaps with the burlap.

I am keeping this one simple, burlap, cream and orange, add a few paper flowers in cream and sage

I created a Fall Banner using spare burlap (with chevron stripes)
glued triangle chalkboard banners
printed FALL

and there ya have it, summer into fall in three easy steps.

  • Okay this might be a dumb question – but how do you get the ribbon and burlap to lay on the wreath like that?

    • you bunch it and use the stems to tie it. Both the burlap and the decomesh are firm enoun they hold their shape.

  • what an adorable wreath.
