Today I share with you my Fall wreath. I like it. It didn't look like this when I first bought it many many years ago. But it had pieces and parts that really reflected the colors of Fall, so I decided to give it a facelift.
The grapevine wreath base was a standard brown. Which, over time, had become more and more dull. Since our house sits back a ways from the street, I wanted something that would be brighter overall. So...out came the trusty Krylon spray paint, and voila! Now I have a nice bright wreath base that stands out against the black door.
Then I added the orange ribbon. Again, a bright touch that will transition well from Fall, to Halloween, and then back to Fall. Once that was in place, I started adding back all of the leaves and fruit that were part of the original wreath, as well as some other items I had collected over the years. Things like that I just don't throw away!
I'm happy with how this looks. I really like the contrast of the colors against the door, and other than my ribbon and spray paint purchase, it cost $0 to put together!
