whimsical fall wreath...

I usually go for traditional fall decor--autumn leaves in deep oranges and reds.  But this year I decided to do something a little more playful and out of the ordinary.

I started with a straw wreath form, polka dot ribbon, two fun fall picks, and felt.

I unwrapped my straw form, which is unorthodox, but I wanted the straw to show.  (It is a fall wreath, after all.  And I liked the texture.)  I then wrapped it with polka dot ribbon.

Next, I glued on my two picks, leaving a bit of a gap between them.

I filled up the space with a few ivory and mustard felt flowers.

And that was it!

All the supplies were 50% off, too, so this whole project only cost about $6.

What did you do for your fall decor this year?  Anything new?

  1. Did you go to Hobby lobby? Or whatever that store is called? why must we only have way overpriced Michaels??
    Cute wreath! Love the straw, it makes it look rustic.

  2. Beautiful! I love sales like that ;) Did you make the felt flowers or did you buy them?
