Can you believe it is already October? OK yes we have all been inundated with Pumpkin everything since August, but it’s actually October. October 3rd to be precise and the Canadian Thanksgiving is just days away. By now I should have shared a table, a wreath and my porch but alas too many work trips. The trips will be stopping and my life is getting more organized so I promise Fall is going to hit you in the face from this ole blog of mine.I mean a gentle slap, I mean tap, not really a slap. Today I am sharing a fun new Neutral Fall Wreath. Yes I realize there is a lot of colour and you may not deem this a neutral but in my home, this is neutral.

Neutral Fall Wreath?
Truly I realize you may be shaking your head over my definition of neutral but it really is. A lovely combination of creams and browns with only a tad bit of rust. No seriously do not count the chevron burlap, because burlap is a neutral. Bet you did not know that did ya? Burlap is a neutral, run with that concept. For me this is a neutral scheme.
If you recall I went teal and pink for my Thanksgiving table last year. Totally not a neutral look right? Plus the Porch has always been a kaleidoscope of colour. For this gal sticking with creams and browns counts as neutral. So let’s make a wreath shall we?
How to Make A Fall Wreath
If you have been around you know I have a very large wreath on my mantle that I de-frock and re-decorate each season. I love my wreaths and adore creating fun new looks. The last few years deco mesh has been my claim to fame but I think I may be on a new trend.
- pick up a fall garland from Michaels and wrap it around your wreath
- step back and admire your new Neutral Fall Wreath
How crazy simple is that? The Fall bouquet I picked up on clearance last year and the garland was 50% off so for $20.00 I have a whole new wreath.The cost of purchasing a Fall Wreath can be crazy I know but if you shop around it can be cheap. Well sometimes, I mean how often have I tried to re-create a craft for double what it would have cost me? Ever do that?
Off track but I was looking at the Christmas decor at Michael’s and saw these amazing Peppermint Candy Sticks. Well I figured I can make that easily, well the Styrofoam alone cost more than the finished product. Sometimes it pays to purchase not make, just my two cents for you.
