Our mom decorates the house whenever the seasons change and decorating for fall and Christmas are my two favorites to help with. Since this is Ken and I’s first house I wanted to start some of our own traditions but this is one of my mom’s traditions that I wanted to keep. I don’t have many decorations so I ended up getting creative and making some of my own. Plus making my own wreath was much cheaper than buying one. $8.50 via local Walmart.
I made a wreath back in Spring for the front door when we were still living in an apartment. So I just took off the spring flowers and redecorated the wicker wreath with Autumn foliage.
I used 2 bundles of each leaf color and 1 of the sunflowers. I couldn’t find my wire cutters so I used a similar tool to separate them into individual stems.
Then it was just a matter of wrapping the stems around and throughout the wreath. I attached the sunflowers first since they were the biggest, and then filled in the gaps with the leaves.
All finished. Just hang it up and enjoy the pop of color on your front door.
