Three Welcoming Wreaths For Fall

October 28, 2013
I enjoy decorating and decorating for the Holidays makes it even 

more special and rewarding.  Many of today's styles are a beautiful

blend of eclectic, primitive, rustic, French or whatever you can 

imagine.  Gone are the days of matchy, matchy-thank goodness.

I have enjoyed designing and creating three different styles of 

wreaths for our home and I am sharing them with you today.  The

first wreath will hang in our dining room on a very beautiful antique

hutch that was my Grandmother's.

If you happen to follow along you will have seen this hutch 

showcased many times.  

This wreath is a blend of bold and natural the base of it is grapevine.

Most of the grasses, wild wheat and acorns I found while on my 

morning walks.  Since I was envisioning a little bling I spray painted 

the acorns gold and also some of the tips of my floral pieces.

I have been crazy over orange this season so naturally  I added a 

glorious orange bow which just happens to have delicate threads of 

gold running through it. 

A little rustic and country is the theme of this wreath and it smells

wonderful too, each one of these sweet little pine cones smells like


I embellished this wreath with some faux felt pumpkins and pearls, 

mini mums, and yes more acorns from my walks which I left natural 

for this wreath. Some of the pine cones have a smokey black tint, so 

was super tickled when I found this black and cream check ribbon.

I feel as though it brings all the elements together.

This wreath has found a new home -my oldest daughter was

helping out with a Fall fundraiser and asked me if she could include 

this wreath in her basket of goodies to be auctioned off.  

To me this sings French Western, a little triangular grapevine basket 

spray painted gold holds a beautiful bouquet of Falls finest.  Rich

burgundy red silk dahlias, bright yellow mini mums, burnt orange 

faux pumpkins and autumn leaves bring Fall to our home. 

I will be hanging this on our Front door as soon as Halloween is 


I have enjoyed Welcoming Fall into our home with different 

compositions, styles, and textures.  Enjoy decorating your home for 

this wonderful time of the year.

  4. I would be hard pressed to choose one as each one is beautiful in its own setting.....I really like how you include things you find on your walks into your them individuality that you can't find in a store....I know your family appreciates that you take so much time each season to make your home so warm, inviting and beautiful....

  5. I think they are all beautiful and how nice to donate one to the basket - I used to do that fundraiser for Andy's school and it is tough sometimes. I think my favorite is what you called the French Western - something so simple yet elegant. Have a good night. sandie

  6. Your wreaths are gorgeous! You're very talented and crafty. :-)

  7. You've done an amazing job at creating these wreaths. The first one with the acorns and natural bits looks beautiful against the antique hutch. And I really like the simplicity of the second wreath ... how nice to donate it for the auction. The little French basket is so cute, and will look adorable hung on your door. You are one creative gal, and I admire your taste in decorating :) Wendy x

  8. These are all beautiful and I especially love how the wreath looks on your grandmothers hutch. What a treasure to have this!

  9. Jemma,

    What a pretty collection of creativity, featuring the season's lovely motifs! All your wreaths are welcoming and beautiful, but the grapevine basket just speaks to me! Maybe it's that French accent I am so attracted to!

    Lovely, vibrant and freshly fall!
