November Wreath

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!

    Ah, she will love it! I DO have a harvest wreath, but it isn’t going up this year, as I’m manically excited about our daughter & her family (read 2 grands!) coming for Christmas!! So many corners to clear of craft stuff & ironing, etc., new kitty-proofing the house. . . but I sure enjoyed seeing yours – rather hers!

    Oh yes, I do, but it has been around so many years (and not nearly as lovely as yours) that it has been relegated to hang on the front of the garage….nice from a distance, or for those with poor vision! LOL Your creations are truly inspiring, Carole. Love the acorns….our squirrels pretty much find them before we do.

    I hung an olden grapevine wreath on our fence. I made it a couple of years ago. It has sun flowers on it, brown leaves.
    I think this is it’s last year 😛

    Good Morning Carole! Your wreath is gorgeous! I can totally understand why your MIL would want you to create an Autumn Wreath for her. I would be surprised if she has not asked you to make her one for every season and every holiday! I fell in love with the making of wreaths well over a year ago, just seeing such a variety of DIY posts and on Pinterest. So, I began collecting and buying supplies (LOL) and I have actually made two whole wreaths! Plus, I have two more in the works. Yippee…. LOL again at myself. I think my hubby , who is 100% supportive of my quilting and all of the supplies I have for quilts that may never ever get made, has reached a point where enough is enough on the wreath supplies and not really seeing any progress. I find it very difficult to find the time to make the wreaths, although the ones I have made or started have been so much fun! Maybe today I should put away the materials and get out the glue gun and pinecones myself and just have a day of creating some Autumn Wreaths and Christmas Wreaths to give as gifts this holiday season! Thank you for sharing and have a fantastic creative day!

Due to the volume of comments during Autumn Jubilee, I am unable to respond personally to each one via email during this event. I love your comments and read every one. Thank you and enjoy!!
