So I have totally procrastinated on making a fall wreath for the front door this year. Not sure why?
It’s not that I don’t have tons of inspiration! I think I just can’t decide which one to make! :)
Here are a few of my favorites. (Maybe you can make a suggestion as to which one I should do in the comments! :)
I really am loving the more “muted “ colors of fall (browns, tans, white/ivory, and brownish orange) this year vs. the fiery colors of fall - bright pumpkin orange and so on!
Like this magnolia wreath from Pretty Handy Girl
and brown leaf wreath from Wild Ink.
I am also loving the beaded or fall berry wreaths like this one from Haute Apple Pie.
…but the supplies for those are more than I am wanting to spend. Need to remember to try to pick up fall berries on clearance this year for next year! :)
and then this wreath made out of a picture frame from LPC interiors captures my attention too!
I really have fallen in love with burlap this year. And this ruffled burlap wreath from Jones Design Company is adorable!
Or I have thought about making a larger version of my burlap wreath that hangs over the fireplace.
And I love this magnolia wreath from Centsational Girl but haven’t found a magnolia tree to get those beautiful leaves from!
Then I got the new Ballard Designs catalog in the mail this weekend and really liked these pinecone wreaths!
The large pinecone wreath is $99! and the small one is $29. Way too pricey for me but I think I could recreate for it almost free. I can just picture it tied up with burlap for fall; then frost the pinecones and tie it up with a red ribbon for Christmas and right into January!
Dilemmas, dilemmas – which one should I choose???
I would love to hear what you think. Which one is your favorite?
I will finally decide and make my wreath this week so come back later see which one I made!
How about this one that I did?ReplyDelete
I made one already! :) http://www.centsiblesavings.com/2010/09/decor-on-dime-my-new-favorite-wreath.html
and I LOVE IT! Actually I made 2 ;) have one on my pantry door and one over a mirror in my dining room.
Thanks the idea! I want to see it in white - have you made yours yet in white? trying to think of ideas for Christmas :)
I love the magnolia one with the white berries - I have a source for magnolia leaves...do you want some too??? : )ReplyDelete
I would love some magnolia leaves! :)ReplyDelete
Thanks so much, Nikki!
I love all the pics you posted and I can't wait to see what you create but I'm really partial to the pinecone look. I agree, burlap would be great with the pinecones! I think I'll head outside right now and collect some pinecones and try to come up with a way to form them into a wreath. I'd like to figure out a way to implement acorns and gumballs in there without everything looking the same color and blending together too much. I love the touch of white spray on the pinecones, as well. What a great winter look! As soon as I get something made, I'll be sure to take pictures and post them on my blog.ReplyDelete
