Are the mornings getting chilly where you live? Can you feel the changing of the seasons? Leaves haven't started to fall yet, but soon they'll be crunching under our foot steps. Big, cosy blankets get pulled out again, sweaters come to the front of our closet...its coming! Yes, I am saying that with excitement! And so begins the start of fall decorating. First on my list of change is the front door wreath.
Once I make a plan, either on paper or through pinterest, I start collecting. This straw wreath was found at the Dollar store, at an unbelievable price of three for three dollars! It's a little smaller then what I wanted but you can always enlarge a wreath by layering materials on.
Using twirling twigs I tied them onto the wreath in groups of five or six with jute.
Adding the twigs quickly stretched out the size of the wreath. Now, looking much bigger and a tad bit wild, it's much closer to my vision.
Burlap was then hot glued to the back of the wreath to add a bit more texture and fullness. After painting the tips of my smaller feathers with gold I spaced them randomly, adding a hint of bling and texture.
