When I think of Autumn I think of the colorful sunsets with purple and yellow hues. This year I wanted to create a Fall wreath that reminds me of those Autumn sunsets, even if the weather is in the high 90s right now where I live. This yellow and purple fall wreath was the perfect way to bring Fall to my home while we wait for the temperatures to cool and leaves to change.
To make your own you will need:
- Grapevine Wreath
- Hot Glue Gun and Glue Sticks
- Berry Picks
- Buttons or Pearl Embellishments
To make the wreath, I started by hot gluing the picks onto the wreath as my base for the layout. I arranged the flowers in between the picks. I kept it simple by only adding four flowers but you could easily add more and another flower color to the wreath. I made fabric rosettes to add a nice contrast to the purple flowers. If you haven’t made fabric flowers before, you’ll be happy to know that they’re actually quite easy and are perfect for fabric scraps.
Begin by cutting a 2 inch wide piece of fabric then fold it in half and tie a knot on one end. This will become your center which you will wrap the fabric around. Every couple of turns around the center, fold your fabric to create rose like petals and use hot glue to hold them in place. Don’t worry about making sure they’re perfect, these flowers are very forgiving.
I really like the deep plum color right now, I’m slowly incorporating it into my Fall decor and this wreath was the perfect addition.
What are some of your favorite Fall colors?
