How to make an Autumn Branch Wreath

Autumn is here and what better way to get into the fall season than to make an autumn wreath!

I found the branch wreath on sale for only $4.99 - what a bargain! I also purchased some floral wire (22 gauge).  The only wire they had at the thickness I wanted was in a huge bundle and green; but I managed to hide the wires in with the foliage when attaching the stems to the wreath.

I finally had a use for my cute mini wire cutters from my jewellery making days, and I started off by cutting all of the branches off the main stems.  I then just started to tuck the stems into the branches of the wreath and play around with placement until I was happy with how it looked.  I then used the floral wire to keep everything in place.

I loved how my autumn wreath looked; however, something was missing. I knew I wanted to include some mini gourds, so I went back to Michael's to see what I could find.

The mesh bag of mini gourds was a bit more than what I wanted to spend, so I ended up buying a small decorative fall stem which included foliage and two small pumpkins for under $2, so I was a happy camper!  I just cut the two pumpkins off the stems and placed them into my wreath!  Done!

I would love to decorate the front porch with pumpkins and beautiful planters full of plants, but that may have to wait until next year.

Do you have a fall wreath for your front door?  How do you decorate for fall?  I would love to see!
