Wreaths? As in, wreath, with an "s" on the end?? More than just one wreath?? Yes, I have loved making wreaths for years and years and with each new season, I get new inspiration and usually a new wreath...(...or two).
I put a selection of wreaths on the front door today, to show the difference in each design and style. I think there are actually four wreaths and one door bucket, but who's counting??
The door basket/bucket is a great change of pace for when you are looking for something a little different to put on the front door that's not a wreath. This little number is a metal container and the golden patina goes nicely with the mums and pumpkins this time of year. I added a few bunches of fall sunflowers and daisies, attached a burlap bow and done.
MONOGRAMMED POLKA DOT WREATH
This is a fun wreath. Bright and sassy with oranges and lime greens; the lime green is an unexpected color for a fall door, but it works. It's on a grapevine base, and I simply painted a wooden craft letter and added on a few white polka dots... It was very easy to put together and it makes a nice welcome on the front door.
AUTUMN HARVEST WREATH
This is a very full wreath. It makes quite a statement on the door, with all the orange fall leaves, pumpkins and cattails. I think the fullness of this wreath, makes it seem more formal. I mainly use this wreath inside, since I don't have a covered front porch to protect it from the weather.
This is a huge contrast to the wreath above, simple but lovely. Not every wreath has to be large and full of foliage. I like both kinds of wreaths, so for me, it's a great way to change things up as we get closer to Halloween. This wreath is a perfect example of less being more; and autumn being all about the pumpkin.
WITCH'S HOUSE WREATH
Here they are all together (minus the door bucket).
