Last month I did a post on Harvest Wreaths for Autumn Jubilee, and my MIL commented that she wanted one. Well, OK, any excuse to get out the goodies and play with my glue gun again!!
Starting out with a grapevine wreath base, I added some fall color faux flowers and leaves. I also started the bow with the streamers to mark the position for the bow.
Adding in some natural elements, I glued sweet gum balls and black walnut shells between the flowers.
I looked in the yard for acorn cups like these, that are three to a stem. Gluing the acorns to them made a larger element. I always glue the acorns into the caps as they come apart too easily.
She liked the idea of the pine cones in the middle so I did that too. I have lots of them. The bow is made from the harvest color ribbon I used on the Thanksgiving cards.
I just love these colors this time of year!
Groups of natural elements surround the silk flowers.
