*NOTE: I am certainly no professional, but I have thoroughly enjoyed my new SLR and am still learning lighting and using a new camera. All photos taken with a Canon 30D + a 50mm 1.4 lens.
Fall Wreath Materials:
- Basic grapevine wreath ($3.99, Michaels)
- Dried natural flowers of your choice ($4.99, Michaels)
- Glue Gun
- Optional: Ribbon of choice
Once you have your plain wreath, and your choice of dried goods, it’s time to get to work! I started by simply layering the various dried flowers onto one side of the wreath. It’s a bit of a tucking, hot gluing here and there process, but once you get the hang of it and figure out your look, its pretty easy!
Continue layering your wreath, and be sure to save the bolder pieces for last. You can glue those on at the very end to ensure they’ll be seen best!
Once complete, take your wreath outside and give it a good look. Some of my twigs needed adjusting to make it a bit more appealing and centered. I tried it on the side of my house without the ribbon first…but then decided to add gold ribbon and tied a bow around the top-center of the wreath – leaving a bit of space so the wreath can hang properly.
There you have it! An easy wreath for your front door or home – and a very cheerful fall greeting for guests that come to visit. Have a wonderful weekend!
