Fall Wreath Reworked

Fall Wreath at CreatingThisLife.com

My wreath from last year wasn’t working. The picture below is how it looked on the front door last fall.

Truth be told, it wasn’t working for me last year either. I really didn’t care for the sunflowers, even though I was born in and grew up in and currently live in The Sunflower State, for heaven’s sake.

And when I pulled the wreath out of the basement this year, the sunflowers were even more sad looking, if you can believe that, and practically falling off. So I helped them the rest of the way and then tied a burlap ribbon I had into a bow to fill in where they had been.

And then I added the stuff I liked best from yet another fall wreath I had laying around and also some clippings from a crabapple tree and a couple of bushes in the yard.

I like it much, much, much better.

Happy first day of fall! Are you excited?

  1. Love the way you beautified your old wreath! It looks much more colorful and vibrant. Really love the fact that you took something you already had and gave it a new & improved look. I need to try to do that more myself instead of always trying to buy something “better.” I just started reading your blog and I wanted to tell you how much I loved the story of how you found your current house. We fell in love with our home 16 years ago and have put our hearts into making it a beautiful home for our family. I feel lucky to have that connection to my home…not everyone does. When I read the story of your home, I felt that you have that home/heart bond as well. Your home is beautiful and I look forward to much more of your pretty pictures and ideas. Thanks for sharing them!! Happy Fall!!

    1. Happy fall to you too, Jackie! Thanks for the lovely comments. I’m happy to have you as a reader. 🙂

  2. Thank you for sharing your beautiful fall wreath at the Falling For Fall Porch party.
