I am a Christmas girl. Every year at this time, I get so excited about the upcoming Christmas holidays. It seems that my decorations go up earlier and earlier.
This year, I decided to try to embrace autumn instead of racing towards winter. Although I could probably trim several homes for Christmas, my Thanksgiving decor is seriously lacking. I began searching online and came across this wreath from Williams Sonoma.
I don’t know about you, but I don’t have $100 to spend on a wreath that will decorate my door for maybe 2 months.
I decided to try to create my version of the fall wreath. My next stop was Michael’s. The grape-vine wreath worked very well because of its inherent natural quality. I didn’t have to worry about covering it completely like you would with a foam ring. I used a smaller number of pumpkins and gourds. After experimenting with several different placements, I ended up going with an asymmetrical style. Finally, I chose the green ribbon for a bigger pop than the original brown ribbon.
Here is my wreath. I apologize for the glare in the photo.
I am very happy with my finished product. With trimmings like this, the wait for Christmas isn’t really so bad.
