Getting Ready with a Fall Wreath

Since the weather has cooled down as of late, I got the urge to start decorating for Fall, even if it is still technically Summer.  (I just have to add...it's supposed to be in the 90s today, however, it was in the 40s Wednesday night.  Talk about fluctuating temperatures!)


You see, the party is over for me.  I have to return to work on Wednesday (after having the Summer off), so I wanted to take advantage of the extra time that I have now to decorate for my favorite season.  (Indoors anyway.  I don't want the neighbors thinking I'm crazy.)   

I saw this wreath on Etsy and fell in love with it.


Isn't is beautiful? It's from Wreaths Etc by Robin. Now I don't know who Robin is, but I can tell you she makes some really amazing & gorgeous wreaths! Honest.  Go take a look. 

I wanted a smaller wreath and thought I would use this beauty as my inspiration.  So, I gathered up some supplies that I thought I might use.


Whenever I gather supplies & take a photo, it's never a true representation of the supplies I used.  I guess I'm always "crafting by the seat of my pants" and never have any idea what I'm really going to need or use.  That's why I hardly ever share a tutorial.  I'd have to have an actual plan in order to do that!

Here is my Fall wreath:


Immediately, the wreath & the warm colors put me in a Fall mood and I've been decorating ever since! 


Soon I'll show you where this wreath is hanging along with my other Fall pretties.   Thanks for being here with me!  Enjoy the weekend!

Your smaller version is so cute! I've been thinking of doing something similar with some supplies I picked up at a garage sale. .....just as soon as I wrap my head around the idea that summer is gone!

Gina your wreathe is amazing. I would display your wreathe now.
Why my fall wreathe is up on my door as well I picked up my 13" planters with yellow mums from Costco.
They haven't opened up yet, but any now they will be awesome.

Good fall wreath, Gina. I have been getting out my fall decor. Thanks for the tutorial. I am ready for cooler weather so I guess I am ready for fall.

Shannon@Cozy Home Scenes said...

Gina, your wreath is very pretty and fallish! I am like you in that I haven't put anything outside yet but I will soon as I get time to do it. The temperature is still high here but we had a much needed rain with a nice breeze which kinda of felt like fall might be around the corner. You did a nice job with your wreath. I like the subdued fall colors.--- Shannon

Pat said...

Gina,
That's one good looking Fall wreath.
Very attractive on the door.
I am going to have to consider one my self.

Ann from On Sutton Place said...

Great job! I agree about the crazy temps. The past few days have been humid and sticky. I haven't done one single thing to welcome fall. Good luck with the new school year...hope you enjoyed your last summer weekend! Happy Labor Day...Ann
