I like to switch out the wreathes on the front door every month or so. Usually, I decorate for each holiday so that is pretty easy to do. However, there are times like now that have no real holiday to decorate for. But I adore fall so making a Hello Fall Wreath just seemed perfect for now.
A few days ago I had an idea to create a fall wreath that incorporated all my favorite things about fall scarecrows, leaves, pumpkins and other gords, and sunflowers. While at Hobby Lobby, I found a wooden Hello Fall sign along with all the other supplies needed for the wreath.
Hello Fall Wreath
- Grape vine 14 inch wreath
- Small bay of hay
- Assorted leaves
- Bag of assorted gords
- Red, orange, and yellow individual sunflowers stems
- Wooden Hello Fall sign
- Craft paint in dark red, orange, dark yellow (I used Americana – Alizarin Crimson, CraftSmart – Pure Pumpkin and Dark Yellow)
- Paint brushes
- Paint tray
- Twine or ribbon
- Hot glue gun and glue sticks
- Floral wire cutters
- I chose to do an umbre-ish pattern by creating 3 additional colors from the three main paint colors.
- I mixed a drop or two of Alizarin Crimson with the Pure Pumpkin. And a few drops of Pure Pumpkin with the Dark Yellow.
- Starting with the lightest color, paint the front and sides of your wooden Hello Fall sign. i.e. dark yellow, yellow-orange, pure pumpkin, red- orange, alizarin crimson.
- Allow the Hello Fall sign to dry completely.
- After the sign has dried, plug in the hot glue gun.
- Position the sign on the wreath.
- Use twine to tie the top of the sign to the wreath.
- Apply hot glue to the back of the sign and attach it to the wreath.
- Thread a strand of twine through the wire on the hay bale.
- Tie the twine to the bottom of the wreath.
- Apply hot glue to the back of a few leaves and layer them starting at the edge of the hay bale and working out.
- Apply hot glue to the back of a hay bale to secure in place.
- Layer gourds and pumpkins next to and on top of the hay bale.
- Secure with hot glue.
- Apply hot glue to the back of the scarecrows and attach them to the wreath.
- Use the floral wire cutters to remove most of the stems to the sunflowers.
- Apply liberal amounts of hot glue to the stem and base of the sunflowers and attach to the wreath.
- Allow the entire wreath to dry completely before hanging it up.
While it seems like a lot of steps to complete the Hello Fall Wreath it only took about 30 minutes and part of that was letting the whole thing dry at the end so I could hang it up!
I love how this Hello Fall wreath turned out!
Have a great day!
