 2Autumn Raffia Wreath

Take a simpler approach to fall decorating and go for a clean design. All you need is some orange-color raffia and an unadorned grapevine wreath. Bundle strands of raffia and pinch in the middle. Twist thin-gauge wire around the pinched center and attach to the wreath. Continue all the way around the wreath, being sure to fluff both sides of the raffia bundles so they flow in the same direction as the twigs.

 

3Fall Pumpkin Basket Wreath

For a non-traditional door decoration, let a wrought-iron basket do the work. Fill with an arrangement of gourds, silk flowers, acorns, and colorful feathers for a fall wreath that will be a hit all season. Crafts wire and heavy-duty glue dots make assembling the arrangement a breeze.

 

 

 4Twig-and-Flowers Fall Wreath

Brighten the autumn season with a fresh fall wreath made from twigs and flowers. For easy construction, simply weave strands of flowers into a bushy twig wreath. Secure using a hot glue.

Tip: Because fresh flowers fade quickly, consider purchasing look-alikes at a crafts store and make a set of longer lasting wreaths.

 

 

5Wheat Welcome Wreath

Spice up a traditional harvest wreath with metallic spray paint and a friendly welcome sign. To make, divide one bunch of dried wheat into three groups. Use a light touch to paint each group a different metallic finish (use gold, copper, and brass looks attractive). Wrap a foam wreath form with twine. Tuck unpainted stalks into the twine, adding the painted wheat sporadically as you go.

To make, simply saturate a foam wreath with water, wrap with twine, and pack mums into the wreath, intermingling various blooms.

Tip: Spritz your wreath with cool water as the flowers dry out.
