Another week and another challenge, I love making a wreath to enter a new season in. Its almost a celebration of sorts!
Again I sat back thinking I’m so grateful for #romancingthehome as ordinarily, I would have let the change of a season pass without taking the time to be thankful for the beautiful Summertime, we have just had and to welcome in a new season.
In my opinion next to Spring, Autumn is a solid second when it comes to my favorite time of year.
As it stands these beautiful rattan wreaths are hard to come by, so I have decided to design the wreath in a semi-permanent style so that I can re-use it again.
Seeing as though this Season brings in soft muted colors, I thought I would keep the wreath simple with tones of copper and green and white of course!
I had a one stem faux Magnolia stem that I had been dying to use! This was the perfect opportunity to show how you can mix faux with fresh and I just so happened to have a young Magnolia tree growing in my garden so I mixed faux with fresh and I love how it came out.
By simply using twine in the same colour as the wreath I attached the branches and stems.
The final touch was a beautiful big olive colour satin ribbon that I tied to create an oversized bow, tied to the bottom of the wreath with a hessian ribbon.
Top tip: I keep all my gift wrapping ribbons…you never know when they will come in handy.
I have made a tutorial video on how I made this wreath, hope you take the time to have a watch.
Autumn is such a beautiful time of year, as a Christian it marks the start of lent and Easter a time of renewal.
I sat with my 5-year-old the other day talking about how the seasons’ change and in kiddo language I explained, that the garden is tried from working so hard to give us all these beautiful flowers that it needs to take a little nap and when it wakes, fresh and rested it will again reward us with flowers in spring.
I hope this time of year will be a time for renewal for all of you.
Till next time
