Sparkle Harvest Wreath

wreath

September is here! And with it comes a lovely crispness to the air and thoughts of harvest. Well, for most of you at least, here in Arizona we’re still hitting triple digits so it was only a trip to Joann’s that made me aware of the changing seasons, haha! Buuuut, I decided to play along and celebrate the season in spite of the heat here!

So, while perusing Joann’s for costume fabric I came across some delicious gold fabric. I don’t typically consider myself a magpie, but this fabric had me hypnotized. So I picked some up along with a few other wreath necessities and constructed the most magnificent harvest wreath. I love it because the fabric is an unusual twist to the very popular wreath trend.

So here’s a little overview on how I created this project. It was super fast and fun and took more time to pick out the elements than to create – definitely a must for this season.

Ok, so here’s what I picked up:

  • A pre-made branch wreath
  • Silk flowers: a red hydrangea, sunflowers, aspen leaves
  • 4 berry clusters
  • An acorn cluster
  • Loose pinecones
  • Gold wired ribbon
  • 22 gauge stem wire

First, wrap your fabric around a quarter of the wreath.

This particular fabric doesn’t fray so I didn’t have to sew it at all. I just tucked the excess under in the back. You could pin it down if you wanted, but this fabric had enough stretch to tuck pretty securely.

Next, using some pretty legit wire cutters, I separated the sunflowers into single stems.

Then I created the arrangement. I would put down a couple flowers/berries down; secure them with stem wire; then move to the next bunch down. Below the hydrangea I started pointing the sunflower stems upward in order to hide them within the arrangement.

Finally, I hot glued the pine cones onto the arrangement. I love the variety in texture. The combination of berries, flowers, and pinecones are the perfect balance and the warm colors really encompass the feeling of the season.

To hang this wreath I tied some ribbon around the top of the wreath and hung it. Here’s the method I use to hang a wreath without damaging your door.

Isn’t it lovely!? Truly, a fresh new wreath is the perfect way to start the fall season!
