Do you like this big wreath on my door? I like BIG substantial wreaths that make BIG statements. Like this one that really makes a statement that fall is here! Here is how I made it.
I think it's hard to find big wreaths. This one is actually made from two garlands. I bought them awhile ago from Hobby Lobby. I set them both down on the table and arched them to form a circle. (overlapping the ends a bit) Then I twisted the ends together where they meet on the two sides, and secured them with a little wire. I tied a bow with black white/ polka dot grograin ribbon to the top and wove the ends into the sides of the wreath.
I noticed this one recently at Hobby Lobby (the garland on the right side of photo) and it is 50% off. Still more than I spent on mine. If I were to do it again, I would wait till they are 75% off. But then, of course, you run the risk that they will be out of them by then. I really like the touches of bright green in this garland.
I'm still waiting for the leaves to start turning red here~ I LOVE the red and orange the best. I hope they put on a good show this year! Happy Fall Decorating~
