~~~~A New Fall Wreath~~~~

 Hello my friends! I hosted a luncheon for the ladies in my development today and made a couple of things to give as gifts. I made an all white arrangement for the woman who is the newest resident. I will show you that soon. I also made this Fall wreath for a woman whose birthday is today. This is the finished product on my front door, and I thought I would show you how I made it .I have several of these easels, that make wreath making SO much easier! I also have a small, tabletop one. I started with a plain grapevine wreath. PLEASE forgive the mess in the background. My worktable is in the basement storage area. I also CLEANED it all up AFTER I made this wreath:):)
 Then I always begin with a bow. I did this one with a wired Fall ribbon, love the colors.

 Next comes 2 fall picks, placed on each side of the bow. They contain sunflowers and some acorns, leaves and berries.
 Next is a stem of sunflowers that I cut apart.
 then a BUSH of mums. I always buy bushes and cut them apart, more bang for your buck!!!!!
 This is a bush of mixed fall flowers. I got these at the place where I worked: everything is 50% off the ticketed place, plus they were having a sale of an additional 25% off!!!!
 I also found this great fall nest.
 I filled in with fall leaves, berries, etc. that I had in my "stash"!!!!
 Sorry some of these are blurry...taking a picture and holding the object makes me shake:):):)
I found this great fall nest too.
 She really liked it!!!

  4. Your Fall wreath looks beautiful Pinky!It looks great on your front door. Can't wait to get mine up next week. August weather finally showed up here in Charlotte and it's HOT! Just saw your comment on my picnic table from earlier this month. Somehow it got lost in the spam file. Guess I should check it more often!

  5. Great minds, Pinky. I did a wreath this morning and posted it, too!:-)

    Your wreath is gorgeous. The ribbon reminds me I need to keep an eye on sales, so I can add to my supply.

  6. Pinky, very pretty. A beautiful gift.Happy Thursday..Judy

  7. Very nice Pinky! You always do a good job on things like this. You are a great neighbor to have!

  8. Love your cheery fall wreath Pinky! The ribbon made a beautiful bow and I love your sweet nest!

  9. What a lovely wreath. I love the fall colors. I am so ready for fall.
    What a great idea to use an easel to make the wreath easier to work on. Your front door looks just like mine. Same setup with the sidelight on one side. I even painted my door black a few years ago. I'll have to read back on your blogs to see how you decorate it for the seasons. Thanks for inspiring me to get to work on my fall decor.

  10. A very beautiful wreath, and a lovely gift to give {or receive} I am totally smitten with that Autumnal coloured plaid ribbon~swoon~would love to own a spool of that!
    You are very talented.
