My sister is moving into her new home this week and I thought it would be nice to make her a housewarming gift. The one thing she requested was a Fall wreath… something to last from September to November she said. Yep, that I can do!
- straw wreath (still in plastic)
- greenery pins
- burlap (on clearance from Michael’s at 70% off)
- (2) boxes of Fall foliage from Hobby Lobby (50% off)
- large sunflower
- floral wooden picks
To add the Fall foliage (pumpkins, leaves, gourds, berries), I used some floral wooden picks. This worked perfectly since the Fall foliage are made out of styrofoam. I just stuck one end of the wooden pick into the foam décor item, and one end into the plastic wrapped straw wreath form. Might take a minute to get it through the burlap, but then it should slide right into the wreath form.
I spaced my Fall foliage around the wreath form first before I began adhering them with the wooden picks. It just helped me space everything out. Also, for the orange leaves, I just used greenery pins.
And soon it will look like this…
