Yesterday, as I was putting away laundry in our bedroom I took some time to admire the amazing view we have from our home’s second floor. The treetops were awash in a sea of gold, orange and red and the sun was dancing across the deep blue water of the bay making it glint and sparkle in the light, and I was struck by just how beautiful this time of the year is.
There is such charm and allure in the changing of seasons. As the cooler temperatures bring out nature’s most brilliant colors I find myself uncovering an appreciation for the world around us and the magnificence that is Mother Nature.
We have been in fall mode around our house for quite some time now, creating a cozy haven as the days grow shorter and the air turns colder. If you missed our fall home tour you can check out our fall living room here and our mudroom and kitchen here. We’ve also been busy baking up batches of our favorite fall treat – pumpkin loaf.
And as we relish in these last beautiful days of fall I wanted to share with you a simple natural fall wreath I created to add a little pop of color to our home. I tend to decorate our home in a very neutral color palette so that I am able to easily add different colors or patterns based on the season, and I think it’s these deep, rich colors that help add an extra layer of warmth to our homes during the fall.
This pretty little wreath was very easy and inexpensive to make, I used only three supplies – a grapevine wreath, faux goldenrod stems and fresh clippings from our yard.
Natural Fall Wreath
- Grapevine wreath
- Faux goldenrod stems
- Fresh greenery
- Start by foraging around in your own backyard. I chose to clip small branches from our crab apple tree because I loved the tiny berries that were slowly beginning to turn orange. But you can choose any type of tree that you like, just be sure the branches are small enough to slip through the branches of the grapevine wreath.
- Next, using wire cutters cut apart the faux goldenrod stem so that it is in individual pieces. I also removed the green leaves from each piece as I didn’t like the color.
- Finally, slip the branches and faux floral stems through the grapevine wreath to create the look you want. I don’t like to use hot glue or floral wire to hold the pieces in place as I take my wreaths apart each year (you’ll have to do this as you’re using fresh greenery) so that I can use the wreaths again for the coming season.
That’s all there is to it, a simple and fun fall project. It’s the perfect way to hold on to the beauty of fall before winter sweeps in and we are covered in a blanket of white.
