Dogwood & Dahlia Autumn Wreath

affiliate

I went into Michael’s with a whole list of Halloween projects planned out, naturally I left with a bag of flowers for this autumn wreath and nothing for Halloween. No matter how hard I try to plan things it never, ever goes the way I think it will. Over the years I’ve made more wreaths than any one person should so I was feeling pretty blank when I realized I needed something new this year for the fall. I was on my way out of the store when I spotted a bunch of gold ferns (because why wouldn’t that be a thing?) and the rest fell into place.

DIY Spring Farm Wreath

A lot has been going on in my life lately and I’ve been completely absent from this little corner of the internet I’ve created. In late January my grandfather died. He was sick and in the end it was what he wanted but it was still hard even though it wasn’t unexpected. He, his wife and his sister (my great aunt who is still kicking and will be forever) were the ones that taught me how to grow things and how to raise chickens. I don’t know if I’ll really come to terms with the loss until spring planting. I always have delayed grief like that.

Wicked Wisteria Halloween Wreath

I’m fighting another allergy/head cold attack and I found day-time cold medicine to be oddly motivational. I didn’t have the wherewithal to make step by step tutorial for this one but I’ll walk you through it. Someday I might even figure out how to make a video and put together a start-to-finish of my creative fiddling. I think the drooping flowers and cheeky crows are perfect for Halloween but the muted purple and cream flowers would be a perfect for the rest of fall as well.

I’ve said in the past that I would never make a yarn wreath. And apparently I lied.

I fell in love with the “Cast A Spell” wreath from Grandin Road, it’s gorgeous; it’s got beautiful ribbons, gourds and amazing details. It’s also $359. Yeah, choked on my coffee when I saw that.

I didn’t need a new wreath because I already made my simple Witch Hat Halloween Wreath. But my sister is always after me to “make things” for her. I really wanted to make this wreath so I figured why not, I could always blog about it. My sister is basically my polar opposite. I like rustic, burlap and natural colors. She likes SHINY, glitter and neon. So with that in mind I set out to make this wreath for her.
