To say that I am excited about this post is an understatement. I love fall. If I could live in a moment of perpetual fall forever. I love the slightly warm days with a touch of crisp air. The chilly nights that require layering and cozying up by the fire. I cannot imaging anything better.
Today I have teamed up with some incredibly, I mean incredibly talented bloggers to bring you 17 amazing fall wreathes. I am so excited to have my non traditional fall antler wreath included!
Non Traditional Fall Antler Wreath
Believe me, I have millions of ideas swarming in my head. I love to make wreathes, the only problem is trying to focus my energy, and concentration on just one.
I was brainstorming some wreath ideas the other day, but I was feeling kind of stuck. Too many ideas, not enough cohesiveness. As I wondered into my family room, I spotted an antler that my sons had found out on a hike a few years ago. I immediately knew what I had to do. Make a wreath with that antler.
I need to say, this was really easy, like stupid easy. I started by using the antler as the base of the wreath.
I grabbed a few of my faux fall flowers from the dollar store. You heard me right, I got them from the dollar store!
I laid them on top of the antler. I kept it very simple and used three flowers and a few branches, arranging them into a position that looked pleasing.
I used some twine to tie the flowers to the base of the antler. I wrapped the twine around the bundle multiple times to secure it all together.
The last thing I did was tie a piece of burlap ribbon around the base where I tied the twine. This is what the wreath will hang from.
A few things I love about this wreath:
- Its multi use. Since I did not secure anything permanently, I can take it apart after fall, and re-purpose into something for Christmas.
- The simplicity really rings my bell. I love keeping my wreaths and other decor simple, so that the main features shine.
- It has that nature inspired theme that I love to incorporate into my home.
What do you think of this fall antler wreath? Is it something you would hang in your home?
