Another simple wreath transformation, from Christmas to Fall. This wreath hung on my front door last winter and has been hanging all forgotten in the garage. I realized that the wreathe frame with the apples and pine cones would be perfect for Fall. ( and in keeping with the fact today is Thanksgiving this seemed a fitting post for today).
I pulled out some of my stock of decomesh (yes I have quite the supply, my basement will start competing with Michael’s any day now). It is a fall theme till after Thanksgiving ( then I will switch to Halloween colours) so pulled out the cream and Orange and some of my chalk banners. Plus I purchased some new burlap with a chevron pattern.
First step is always “de-frocking” the wreath
Good basic bones, a pretty wreath but I like a little more flare in mine.
I stated with the Burlap with a cheron pattern in fall colours. Gather sections of the burlap and attach using the branches, keep to a “non-pattern” the sections need not be evenly spaced.
After the Chevron has been added I then started using the Otange decomesh , I find alternating the orange so it flows over the spots I have attached the chevron works well for fullness. I opted out of adding the cream this time as the Orange and Chevron seemed to flow together nicely.
Created a small Welcome Fall Banner ( I need calligraphy lessons for fancire letters)
Overall I liked the look of this wreathe, keeping the ribbon count to two seems to let the apples shine through.
