Que Linda: Fall Wreath



I can see a wreath like this being adapted for any occasion or season.

I'm not much into door decor except for Christmas. Sometimes in the fall if I get real motivated and plant some season mums, sedum, etc. It's not that I don't like it, I'm just not into it enough to bother with shopping, etc. for it. - Just call me lazy, LOL!

Thanks KurlyKae. And Rou, the little balls on the wreath are actually made of twine. The balls are handmade by wrapping the glue-soaked twine around balloons. When the glue is dried, you pop the balloons and you're left with a rigid twine ball. I'm sure they're a mess to make but the end result is very pretty.

I does sound messy but easy. What kind of glue did you use? Thanks!

I haven't made one.. I was just putting the suggestion out there. I would imagine you could use ModPodge
or something similar.

I'm thinking I should maybe breakout the X-mas wreath since Myradella said it would be good for Easter and Mardi Gras...oh, and St. Pat's Day
Instead, I got this...

I'm starting to see little green sprouts on our trees so I will be heading to Michael's in the near future to put together a Spring/Summer wreath.

In a perfect world I'd make a wreath that I could put seasonal touches on, but I'm such a procrastinator it will never happen. I'd do an overall Spring/Summer looking wreath then leave a space that I could change things out for different holidays.

Wile, that little bunny face is cute! I always forget to check the dollar store for things because it's in an area I rarely go to.

I love a good spam bump, thanks robot!

I finally made a new wreath for Christmas and while it's certainly more Christmas than Wintery, I left it up anyway. I wanted bright colors with lots of sparkle so I went overboard with red, white, lime green and disco balls. Yes, it's tacky and I love it and no the ribbons don't match but I was too lazy to take the old ribbon off and didn't have more of it to make a bow. This is the same wreath that had the birdhouses on it, but I removed most of it and added all this new stuff. Rou, it's another twist tie ribbon! Red and white count for Valentine's day even if there are fat snowmen on it, right??

I have the same thing on my door as last January (a big photograph of colorful flowers. I think it's on this thread somewhere). It's only a year old so it will be my annual January decor for awhile yet.
My spring wreath is 14 years old (I won it in a landscaping contest), my summer decor (a giant metal sun) is only a year old, my fall wreath is a few years old, and my Xmas wreath is probably 10 years old.
Not sure why I thought you all wanted to know the age of my door decorations. hahaha.

Well duh, not only did I post a pic on page 2, I also described all my other decor. I must really think you guys are interested in that. So, be interested darn it!! : )

I still have the dried out pine wreaths from Christmas on my front door. I did remove the Christmas bows, to put away with the other decorations, so they are au naturel, well, except for the pine cones they came with. I just may leave them up until spring, or they fall completely apart, whichever comes first...
