Rustic Fall Wreath

Even if you don’t dress your trees with goblins and hang skeletons on your porch, you will love to welcome your guests with a fall wreath on the front door. I made this wreath with loops of dried vines. You can buy one wreath and toss it in the bath tub with warm water, take it apart and loop it into 2 or 3 loose wreaths like this. Grab a spool of floral wire and your glue gun to make a cluster at the top with about a dozen sprays of fall goodies. I picked gourds, leaves, acorns and pumpkins and added some purple accents. To top it off, I added the burlap bow in the center. Add a loop of wire on the back so that you can hang it on the door. You know I heard someone say that you only get one chance to make a first impression, and this would make a nice one!

If you've never made a bow, I did a little illustration for you, so you have no excuse. Now go for it!
