Baby step numero uno. Create a festively fall wreath.
I have been somewhat "okay" with the idea of placing a themed wreath on our front door for quite some time now, but I just couldn't find the right one. Everything I saw was a glittery ghost explosion, and I was wanting the wreath to be predominantly natural and simple. I was also hoping to find a good wreath "base" that I could then re-accessorize for each season.
I then figured I could snag up some fall-colored berries to accessorize the wreath, thereby creating a natural-looking, simple fall decoration to our front door. I found these guys at three dollars per stem, not including my 40% off coupons:
Once I had all of my supplies, I literally spent 30 seconds sticking the berries through the grapevines in an aesthetically pleasing arrangement:
As I just stuck the berries through the vines, there were some stem wires hanging out of the wreath:
I didn't want to cut the stems in case I wanted to repurpose them at a later date, so I just tucked them up through the vines as well!
My final step was to create a hanging mechanism for the wreath. I used some floral wire I had on hand to loop the wreath...
...and then created another loop that could be hung around the pre-existing nail on our front door:
All that was left to do was hang it on the door!
I absolutely love how my tiny little baby step towards seasonal decorating turned out! It's perfectly natural and oh so simple. I also love that it took me a total of five minutes and less than $15 to create! My plan is to remove the berries and replace them with either some ornaments or painted pine cones for the Christmas season. Oh how I love a multi-purpose piece!
How are y'all decorating for fall?
