Easy Fall Wreath

After our trip east, I was ready for the cool air of Montana. I have only called this place home for a few months (7) and I must say, after living around the world this truly is “the last great place”. I love it here.

When we got off the plane, I knew it was in the air… fall that is! And boy am I ready. I love wearing jeans and boots. I love the colors and the smells and you can’t forget football.

But one of my favorite things about fall is the crafting! Summers tend to be a little boring when it come to crafting. But luckily Summer is short lived here.

Now do’t get me wrong… I LOVE the summer time, but I LOVE, LOVE, LOVE, the fall.

So, this bring me to Mom’s wreath! After a busy weeks of school, Mom and I took a trip to Michael’s. I was in desperate need for a new fall flower arrangement.

Mom was in the mood to make something and she came up with this beauty!

You only need a wreath form (we used the grapevine wreath)

Flowers of your choice

Ribbon of your choice.

That’s it!!

You will start out by “pushing” the ribbon into your wreath, so it looks “bunchy”

We used a screwdriver to push in the ribbon.

Then you will cut your flowers down a little (you can also bend your flowers (where you would cut them) back and fourth until the wire breaks. It takes longer but hey, it works!

Then you will push your flowers into the wreath.

And that’s it!

I love this wreath! I placed it above my T.V. instead of on the front door because I ended up loving it so much!

I hope this inspires you to get out there and get your fall on! Because, wether you like it or not, it’s just around the corner!
