I call this front door basket “brambly,” which is code for messy! And fall is a great time to make something wild and bold and filled with great fall elements! It reminds me of the brambles that dot the countryside in the fall.

I made this fall front door basket in about five minutes. It’s disheveled and a beautiful mess! And it looks fabulous on our front door! It is a homage to the untamed nature of autumn!

Bittersweet Wreath With Window Pane Bow

I’m so fond of bittersweet! It can be found here in Lancaster Co. However, it is considered an invasive plant, and by law, we cannot grow it. But it can be found growing along hedgerows and in areas near woodland. So I had to use the faux version on a fall wreath. Are you a fan of fall bittersweet?

This bittersweet wreath is another super easy wreath to make. So if you have never made a wreath before or don’t think you are crafty… YOU CAN DO THIS!  It will take you less than 30 minutes to complete, and you will have a gorgeous fall wreath for your front door!

  1. Good morning Yvonne.
    I am continuing to use your idea of basket on my front door. Just switched out the hydrangea and lily arrangement for a pretty bunch of sunflowers. Looks great. I will probably have a wreath for fall but for now a basket is perfect for transitioning from one season to the next.

  2. All these wreaths are lovely. I love the Indian corn wreath, and the one with the window-pane plaid bow! Strking!

    1. I’m remaking the Indian Corn wreath for our front door this summer. I’m so happy you like the front door decor.

  3. Sue Martin says:

    These Wreaths for a Single Entry Door are very nice…
    What kind of Decoration do you recommend for a “Double Door” entry door?

    1. I think you should make two easy mirror image wreaths. One for each door. Hope this helps.

    Hi Yvonne! Do you disassemble your wreaths after each season and just re-use the wreath/fauxs from season to season in different ways? Or do you make them, store them assembled and use them over and over? I stopped making wreaths quite a while ago and just look for good deals on ready made at season’s end. But this has inspired me to make something! I’ve finally gotten to where I can make a decent bow!

    1. Hi Carol, I usually disassemble the wreaths and put the pieces into clear boxes. I hang the double grapevine wreath on a hook in the basement. I did not take apart the corn wreath. Hope this helps.

    I love the wreaths! They are so fall!

  6. MARY-ANN (FROM CANADA!) says:

    Hi Yvonne!
    I’m not sure if someone may have already mentioned this to you, but the Indian Corn Wresth link takes you to the BITTERSWEET WREATH DIY. Hoping for the correct link to get posted as I’d love to make this one! Thanks!

  8. Marie Cosgrove says:

    I made the Indian corn wreath and it is hanging over my mantel. It was so easy to make! Thank you for the inspiration, Yvonne! I did cheat a bit by ordering my corn from Etsy, as none of the markets here in Philly have Indian corn as yet; I was wanting to get ahead of September with my decor!

    1. I’m so glad you make the Indian Corn wreath! I bet is is gorgeous above your mantel.

  9. Yvonne, I always love this post. The problem with it is I love all of the Fall Wreaths ? this year. I will try to make one of them. Your instructions are simple to follow. Thanks again for sharing and Happy Fall.

    1. Thanks, Patricia. I try to change the wreaths I feature every year. Make the leaf wreath. It’s a stunner
