Here in D.C. it’s been quite a bit chillier than usual & I think that’s what got the Autumn bug under my skin this morning. I felt the overwhelming desire to make a wreath. I can honestly say that has never happened to me before. Perhaps it comes along with motherhood…you suddenly feel the need to hang a seasonally appropriate item on your door…
Whatever the reason I really wanted to make one that wasn’t cheesy & was more of the Crate & Barrel/Pottery Barn style. (without the $80 pricetag of course)
Making a wreath was actually really fun & easy, here’s what you need for the Autumn one above:
Hot glue gun & gluesticks
Silk flowers, branches, beaded garland and anything else at the craft store that you want to stick on there! I found a box of plastic acorns and glittered them for a little sparkle…
The pictures below will show you how I added everything on in stages, to attach items I either stuck them in the branches &/or used hot glue.
