Last night the temperature dove into the 40’s. In just a few days it will be back up in the 80’s. The Fall season in Chicagoland is often unpredictable. It might be snowing on Halloween … or it might be mildly warm. But one thing you can always count on is the beautiful colors of the trees as the leaves change. Shorter days signal the time to start decorating in warm colors and one of the first things I do is plant a few mums and swap out the front door adornment. This year, I made the easiest Fall wreath ever as I join a few fellow bloggers for Hospitality Filled Homes!
This year I wanted a natural looking wreath, something with burnt orange berries that resemble bittersweet. I love the look of bittersweet, but it’s a little overpriced so I don’t typically buy it.
It blends right in!
Once the stem is tucked inside the grapevine wreath, carefully hot glue a few branches of your floral spray onto the wreath to keep it in place. If you want to re-use the grapevine wreath form, you can use florist wire to attach a couple of the branches to the grapevine.
Keep working your way around the grapevine wreath, attaching the floral sprays until the wreath is filled. You could also attach just one floral spray and leave the rest of the grapevine wreath exposed. That’s what I love about working with grapevine wreaths … they’re both functional and pretty.
