Rustic Fall Wreath

Happy Fall ya’ll!  Does this time of year get you giddy like it does me? I LOVE Fall!  The changing colors of the leaves, the cooler weather… It is my absolute favorite season!  Unfortunately though, we don’t have much of one here in Texas. :( But that doesn’t stop this girl from adding a little pumpkin spice to her home decor!

This year, I decided it was time to start decorating our home for each season/holiday. I have fond memories of my mom doing this when I was growing up so now that I have a baby of my own and a beautiful new home, I couldn’t wait to carry on the traditions.

One of the first things I love to do to add a little seasonal cheer is to swap out the wreath on the front door. In years past, I hung this pumpkin wreath on the door for Fall.

It was one of my favs, however, it shed green moss everywhere so I actually discarded it and decided it was time for a new Fall wreath. So I turned to Pinterest for a little inspiration and loved what I found!

While browsing, I stumbled upon a Fall wreath from Consumer Crafts and knew it was the one!  I loved its simplicity and its rustic charm.  I also loved that it was subtle and didn’t scream Fall with orange and pumpkins galore. Last but not least, there’s something about that linen burlap ribbon that kept me coming back for more.  I just had to have it!

So, I headed out to Hobby Lobby to gather the necessary supplies and set to it. Unfortunately, I couldn’t find exactly the supplies pictured in the inspiration wreath so I had to improvise.

Head on over to Consumer Crafts for a complete list of supplies (with links) and the steps to make your own rustic Fall wreath. Below are a couple of modifications that I made:

– Rather than looping the ribbon and tying it off with Baker’s twine, I cut mine into individual strips and then stapled them into a loop. Then, I layered each loop onto the wreath one by one and secured them with hot glue.

– For the mini chalkboard sign, I had to create my own. I found a miniature chalkboard in the scrapbooking section. Then, I attached a small clothespin and painted them both white. Last, I used a chalk pen to write “Happy Fall” on it.

What do you think?  Do you love it as much as I do? Not your style? No worries.  Comment below to share what’s hanging on your front door this season.  I’d love to see it!
