Neutral Fall Wreath


I know.
I know we're still enjoying the last weeks of Summer.
And I know some of you don't even want to hear about Fall, but I can't help it.  All the summer decor in my house was beginning to look out of place.

The beloved crab art, seashells and sail boats are all packed. Uh hu, until next year.

I've been slowly transitioning -decor wise- from summer to fall in a very neutral way.

One thing I like about today's project is that all the stuff I used I already had, yep.
You can also get ideas to re-think what you already own.

I re-purposed an old wreath, in fact, the oldest wreath I had. I had't use it in a long time. Working on it was a complete mess. The pieces of straw kept on flying away. :/

  • Note: If you have one of these, work outside.



I wish to say the idea of this wreath was mine, but it's not! My inspiration came from Deb. I saw a beautiful wreath in her family room and I totally fell in love with it. So, I'm here trying to copy cat that wreath.

My old straw wreath was not as chunky as my inspiration ---> a pool noodle was the solution to the thickness problem.

  • Note: Still keeping that summer vibe inside ;)


Then, using an old, white fitted sheet that was tore into long pieces...

  • Note: Don't throw away your kid's worn bed sheets. Let them jump and do as much acrobatics they want on their beds. All that action will tenderize those fabrics to the max!

The wreath was wrapped. No glue is needed, tuck the pieces underneath or in between both sections.



I didn't even know what else to use besides the jute rope. At this point I went searching all around my house for white cording or white something.
This is what I found: White decorative wire. I've used it for this and this project before.

After wrapping the wreath with the wire, it was now time to bring out the jute rope.

Then, I remember I had white piping from my sewing projects, so I added it too.

  • Note: If I need the piping or the jute rope later on, I just have to unwrap them. No glue.  ;)


A long piece of burlap ribbon -from this project- was used to hang it in place.
My neutral Fall wreath's all done!

The only thing I recently bought for this entire vignette is the pumpkin garland at T.J.Maxx. I'm loving it.


I might or might not move it from here.


Have you started any Fall decorating yet?


Are you ready?
I am.
I love fall!
