Fall Wreath Ideas from Home….

I was looking for some new ideas for making a new fall wreath and thought I’d share some ideas I’ve run across.   I don’t just use wreaths on outside doors, but use them inside on mirrors, windows, and on old shutters to bring a softer fall to the house. These wreaths are all a little more fragile and they’d be perfect inside. They all look pretty easy to make and as usual for me, won’t cost a fortune!

This is such a cute idea that I saw on Better Homes and Garden’s website.  It would be easy to make and you might already have a framed chalkboard sitting around the house you could use.  It would also be cute with just an empty frame with some fall flowers around it.

This one is also from BHG and is made from Pistachio shells of all things!  I love the natural look of this, but can’t imagine gluing all those little shells onto a form.  I assume this would be a straw wreath underneath and would require lots of patience  –  but how pretty when finished!

I’m sure you’ve seen these gorgeous wreaths that are made from dried hydrangeas on Pinterest lately. The first one is from BHG and the second is from Pinterest. If you’re lucky enough to have a hydrangea bush, you could pick those that are drying right now and hot glue the blossoms onto a grapevine wreath and voila- a beautiful fall wreath!

The next one is from Pinterest and uses a 5-6” wooden embroidery hoop. I’ve seen a lot of these recently and think you could put anything on there and it would be so easy.  This is just a few eucalyptus branches and a few little faux or real pumpkins. I also like the little Hello Fall frame they attached!

The last two wreaths can can be found on my blog, a burlap wreath and one made with a drop cloth. Both of these are simple to make and the directions are right here!

 

I hope these examples give you some inspiration to bring fall inside. The leaves aren’t changing much in my neck of the woods,  and the temp is still hovering around 90 degrees, so we get autumn around here wherever we can!

About lindafm51

Hi! I’m enthralled with, interested in, passionate about, in love with houses and all things home! I have been as long as I can remember. I recall getting my mom’s Better Homes and Garden magazines and imagining how I would redo her beautiful front porch or my bedroom. I have a good eye but I’m not the neatest creator around, so I usually have to see it in place and then move things around until they tickle my fancy – this has always driven others crazy! I love to decorate, redecorate and spend time in my creation with those I love. Even though I make a lot of changes to my home, I feel very fortunate for all God has given me and I try to be a good steward by not overspending. I’ve done this on a shoe-string budget for many years, so I have lots of practice in using what I have or buying on the cheap. I’ll share ideas with you on this blog – it’s what I’m good at! Enjoying home! Linda
