A Simple Fall Wreath

Thursday, September 27, 2012

I've been busy with projects here and there interspersed with client work and haven't had much time to post this week.  I did want to pop in real quick and share a simple fall wreath with you though.  Well, simple in that the wreath was made last December.  Does anyone remember my $2 magnolia wreath?

You can find the tutorial here.  After Christmas it remained in this spot for a long time.  Probably longer than it should have.  For some reason I held onto it.  Dried magnolia is pretty - especially in the fall when you have the urge to add a little rustic texture back into your decor.

This morning I hung the wreath on our front door and rather like look.  Talk about easy.  I should be ashamed to even call this a project.  It is almost like adding something to your list that you have already done just so you can check it off.  I know some of you do that.  Guilty!

I also changed out the pots on the front porch.  The combo: sky pencil hollies, dusty miller, & purple violas.  Now all I need is a few pumpkins.  Enjoy your day friends!

  2. Love all the fall ideas I have been seeing in blog- land. Love this on your front door.

  3. Rene, this is the BEST kind of project because it works in more than one way...so happily take credit for it!

  4. I love it Rene! Very pretty. I remember when you made that wreath....good thing you hung on to it. I need to make one this season. We have 4 magnolia trees. I'll start gathering the leaves.

  5. What a great idea! I might need to do something similar soon. My neighborhood is full of leaves, so it's gonna be pretty easy


  6. No magnolia trees here as the potential for cold makes them difficult to grow in the high desert. this is sad because your wreath is so beautiful! Really a great project.

    We would love to have you share this and other DIY project in our Simply the Best. Hope to see you. We get your RSS feed and so glad we do! Thx Sharon and Denise

  7. i love it! magnolia leaves are so thick and beautiful!

  8. I'm always so envious when I see Southern magnolia used like this - we don't have this type of magnolia here in Canada - too cold - and to buy it is VERY expensive ($5 a small branch). I did, once, have a magnolia wreath given to me and hung it in my bedroom for years before it disintegrated. I love what you've done with this.

  9. I love those sky pencil hollies! I have seen them in other places and they are so cute and look great in your pots. I doubt I will post mine that I finally did this weekend cause they just did not turnout like I thought. That is what I get for rushing.
