Wreaths are a great way to make a home feel warm and welcoming. Whether you buy one ready made or you like to DIY your very own, wreaths are a great touch to every home. Since I’m thinking most of you read my blog because you like to tackle your own projects I’m going to show you how I made this easy natural fall wreath that will work any where in your home. You will find more inspiration at the end of the post from some other talented ladies.
I started with a straw wreath that I have used many times. If you read my 3 decorating secrets for fall you will know what I’m talking about. I usually have sheet moss on hand but I was out so I purchased a roll at Michael’s with a 40% off coupon.
I started tacking down the moss from the corner and I used pins to hold it in place. Be sure to use dark top pins or place them in discrete areas so they aren’t seen. Once I wrapped a piece of moss around the wreath I cut it with scissors. There is no real pattern to cutting the moss. I did it on big random pieces overlapping because I didn’t want it to look too perfect.
I gathered small twigs from my back yard. FREE, I love free. Then I tucked them into some of the openings where the sheet moss was overlapping. I found the berries in the attic with a bag a greenery. I snipped off some of those to add a little color.
I decided to hang this wreath in my foyer where it would be seen more. We have an open foyer to the dining room, stairs and living room so we can see it all day.
You could hang with ribbon or fabric like did here. I had this fabric I plan to make pillows with (one day) so I cut a strip, folded it in half, ironed it in place and hung it up.
There’s one last little detail. I realize I took the photos with the twine in them. I never used it, LOL. So if you would like to use twine as ribbon or bow details it would look good too.
