Happy Monday! And a VERY happy Thanksgiving to my fellow Canadians! Wishing you a fun, turkey filled day with your family!!!

We actually celebrated yesterday having hosted a fabulous pot-luck style Thanksgiving dinner with some of our nearest and dearest friends! Which means that today, we can kick back, relax and enjoy our leftovers!!!

Carrying on with this fun (some might say crazy) plan to share two straight weeks of {all things Fall} with y’all, today I’ll FINALLY be sharing my Fall Wreath! And what better time to reveal my Fall Wreath than Thanksgiving Day really?! You saw a sneak peek of it last week when I shared my front porch and entryway, today I’m dishing all the details on how I made this super simple Rustic Fall Wreath!

I say finally my friends, because this wreath and the zillions of supplies I might possibly need for it, have been taking over our dining table for weeks now! With SO, SO many stunning Fall wreaths out there for inspiration (see my faves here), I was completely overwhelmed with the possibilities. So, instead of continuing to overwhelm myself with all of the pretty things I could add to it, I decided to keep it simple instead.

I started with a plain grapevine wreath like this one.

Once I’d weeded out what wasn’t an absolutely necessary part of my wreath, I was left with a few rustic looking flowers, some feathers and some twirly gold sticks, all of which I found at Michaels. I laid everything out on my wreath in a few different ways to see where everything looked best. Then, I cut down the stems of my little flowers and feathers with some wire cutters as needed and started wrapping each piece with floral wire to attach it to my wreath.

To attach each piece, I simply fished the wire through the sticks in my wreath to the back, twisted it around itself a few times and finally, tucked the extra wire back into the wreath.

I did this for each and every piece I added on, making sure that everything was really tight and secure. I don’t want anything to go flying off every time a gust of wind rolls by!

Three flowers, two feathers and a few sparkly gold sticks later and I had myself a gorgeous, rustic Fall wreath!

All that was left to do was loop some ribbon around the top and hang it on my front door!

Thank you SO very much for following along with my {all things Fall} adventure! Be sure to check back tomorrow to see how I’ve cozied (Google is telling me that’s not a word, but I’m pretty sure it’s got to be wrong!) up my new fireplace mantel with all sorts of Fall swag!

Wishing you SUCH a wonderful day!

  1. Happy Thanksgiving Friend! Everytime I see that front door, I have a little bit of door-envy! It’s just gorgeous and that wreath is perfect on it! Loving all your fall projects, Kristi… playing catch-up today and savoring them all!

  2. I like it! It’s nice to see one that isn’t absolutely covered in stuff and doesn’t cost you your first born to make lol
