Fall Curb Appeal Part 2: Easy Autumn Wreath

Easy Autumn Wreath

Hi guys!  I love to decorate my home for fall, but I’ve been really trying to be frugal with my spending. In the first part of this Fall Curb Appeal “series” I shared with you how I filled mywindow box planters for under $20.  Today I’m sharing how to make a no-spend easy autumn wreath using a grapevine wreath and natural elements.

Last fall, I decided on a wreath alternative, a pine cone wall hanging :

But this year, I just wanted to create something fast and easy, and to beautify a grapevine wreath doesn’t take much. They are by far my favorite “forms” as they are natural and easy to work with. I typically jazz mine up with natural elements, like this one I made for Christmas, stuffed with pine tree branches and boxwood sprigs.

Today I’m going to make a similar wreath using my flaming dying boxwood and some twine.

You may remember how I painted this grapevine wreath in color blocks last spring-well all I had to do was flip it over and use the backside for this wreath-ya see? My grapevine wreath works double duty!

I snipped a few sprigs off of my boxwood (and I realize, most people don’t have a dying boxwood lying around), so some nice looking berry picks or sprigs from your favorite craft store.

Just begin by sorting out your snippings and using the tightly twined branches of the grapevine wreath to hold each sprig in place.  I like an asymmetrical wreath and work on just one side.

I just kept stuffing the the sprigs in until I was happy with the way it looked.  I then grabbed my twine and began wrapping the center of the sprigs until it looked sort of substantial.

I then began wrapping the twine in under and in between the sprigs to secure them in place. You could also use glue or floral wire-but this worked just fine for me.

And all together this took me about 15-20 minutes-tops!
