Beautiful Fall Wreaths
Look at these beautiful fall wreaths....I vote we have fall all year round. LOL
Apples and Pinecones Wreath
This eye-catching wreath will brighten your front door for the entire season with two-tone apples and bold red berries. To make, bend a 4-foot length of heavy-gauge wire into a circle. In a pretty pattern, skewer the apples on the thick wire and attach pinecones with thin-gauge wire, then bend the ends of the heavy-gauge wire into C hooks and connect them. Finish the wreath with a bouquet of pine boughs, a few sprigs of scarlet bittersweet, and a bow.
Sunburst Cornhusk Wreath
This easy decoration celebrates the subtle colors of fall and will last year to year. Start with an 8-inch straw wreath form and add husks one by one. Spread hot glue on the bottom half of the husk and wrap it around the wreath from back to front. Repeat around the wreath until the colorful husks cover the form
Juniper and Bittersweet Rake Wreath
Add instant color to your front door for fall by tucking strands of bittersweet, juniper berries, and the feathery tips of Eastern red cedar into the hollow stem of an old rake head. Wrap jute around the bottom of the rake head and tie it into a bow for a simple rustic touch.
Fall Leaf, Apple, and Kale Wreath
Capitalize on the gorgeous leaves that accompany fall with this bountiful wreath made from apples and colorful leaves placed around a head of kale. Secure the kale head to the inside of a foam wreath base with straight pins, adding apples around the perimeter with generous amounts of hot glue. Surround the fruit-and-veggie wreath with fiery red dried leaves and twigs, attached with florist's wire, and hang on your door.
Bright Bittersweet Wreath
This bold wreath and its stunning fall colors will turn heads this season. To make, strip leaves from fresh-cut bittersweet vines and stems of Chinese lanterns. Bend and twist the bittersweet vines into a circle, keeping the berries intact. Wrap more vines around the circle, then tuck in Chinese lanterns. Secure loose pods or stems with a bit of hot glue, and hang the wreath away from bright light and heat to preserve its color.
Gourds and Corn Fall Wreath
Welcome fall with this natural wreath fashioned from an old wire tomato cage and adorned with seasonal vegetables, fruits, berries, and greenery. Snip off the top layer of the tomato cage, leaving the adjoining spokes attached. Bend out all of the spokes flush with the circle, and wrap the circle in jute to stabilize it and give your wreath base a finished look. Slide small ears of corn and gourds onto the wire spokes in a pattern, and top off the shorter gourds with cranberries to hide the wires and give the wreath a splash of color. Fill in the circle with snowberries as needed. Finish the wreath with millet, small pine boughs, and snowberries, wired together. Add an autumn-hue ribbon bow for a nice flourish.
Picture-Perfect Fall Wreath
Brighten a fall door by repurposing a wooden frame for this fun wreath. Secure chicken wire to the back of the frame. Tuck colorful fall finds, such as leaves, bittersweet vines, berries, and cattails around the edge of the frame, securing with glue or florist's wire. Faux materials work well if you'd like to keep the wreath for next year.
Corncob and Husks Wreath
Mimic a bright, blazing sunburst with this wreath. Choose Indian corncobs with multiple colors but of similar lengths. Fold out the husks so they point straight out from the tops of the cob. Hot-glue the ears to an 8-inch straw wreath. Fan out the husks for a truly impressive display.
