Here at StoneGable the change of season gives me a reason to create a new wreath. This fall I wanted to make a neutral colored wreath using corn husks, full of creamy colors and earthy browns... until I visited a Hobby Lobby! I could not resist all the warm, rich colors of pumpkins, berries and leaves. So I left with a bag (several bags) of colorful goodies and my mind swimming with ideas in a new direction.
StoneGable Fall 2010 Wreath Tutorial
2 large wreaths
3 glitzy pumpkins
5 large picks of orange/brown berries
4 large picks of earthy colored ball "berries"
2 packages of crape paper like fall leaves
3-5 picks assorted brambly berries and leaves
2 bags of pine cones and acorns
3 large pine cones
2 large stems, brown gourd pods
3 feather picks
2 packs of assorted feathers
odds and ends leaves and berries
As with all my wreaths, I wire 2 wreaths together for a more full and lush look.
Because I wanted the whole wreath to be filled in, I sectioned the wreath into thirds and glued a large pick of rusty colored berries to the wreath.
Add additional variegated large berry/ball pics in between the original 3 picks.
This now sections off the wreath and makes little areas to work with. I find this much easier than trying to work on the whole wreath at one time.
Add pumpkins up against the original 3 berry pick.
Add pine cones. I decided to use only 2 large ones and 1 grouping of small pine cones in place of the 3rd large pine cone, again for more interest.
Shake wreath and re-glue all loose pieces. Fluff and hang in the perfect spot!
