Fall Wreath by First Lady of the House

The recent cooler temps we’ve had here have me in full fall mode, and today’s Weekly Feature has me wanting to dress my front door in her autumn best!

I’m happy to be guest blogging over here at Positively Splendid!

I’m Camilla

 and I blog over at First Lady of the House 



 and I LOVE everything creative!

I have 2 small girls (3 & 1) that are my pride and joy. My husband is UBER busy and I am grateful for him! We love the suburb of Salt Lake City that we live in. I enjoy reading, gardening, shopping, and crafting (not in any particular order).
I’m here sharing my Fall Wreath that I recently made!
I started with the Straw Wreath Form that I actually bought at Salvation Army for $3!!
A serious steal!

It’s super big which I love, Like 18″ across.
 I bought this burlap stuff at Hobby Lobby in the reupholstering section.  I LOVE it so much. The material is thick with red striping in it but it does have some sort of chemical treatment that makes it slightly stinky.

I started wrapping it up. Simple. No instructions there.


Then I just chose my Fall things to dress it up with:
wheat sheaths (found at Hob Lob), red tulle, red Christmas berries, some raffia.
Really whatever you have on hand!

Great tip**  To prevent the wreath hanger from scratching my door, I attached a piece of felt normally used to prevent chairs from scratching wood floors.


Thanks to Amy for having me here at Positively Splendid, it was such a pleasure!
Come on over and check out some of my other projects at First Lady of the House.

What a gorgeous wreath, and a terrific tip for protecting your front door from wreath hanger scratches, too! Thanks so much to Camilla for stopping by to share her ideas with us!

    This is a great wreath because it takes you from Fall into Christmas (no need to put a different one up!) Love it–shared on my FB page.

    I have tons of burlap hanging around my hose from past projects. This is a great way to use it. Love it! Thanks.

    This is just beautiful! I’ve gotta get some of that burlap ribbon. Oh, and the idea of using the felt on the back of the wreath hanger is pure genius!
