I'm quite smitten with my front door. It's bold, teal and lovely. It needed a pretty new wreath on it for Fall, but I wanted the wreath to tie-in with my door's teal-ness while sill saying "Autumn". Behold, my vintage inspired and feathered fall wreath in teals, greens, a dab of burlap, and a rustic monogram. Say that ten times fast. Then, hang it on your door. (Scroll on down to the bottom of this post for 6 more handmade Fall wreath ideas too!)
This wreath is so eclectic, but it's very me. I love the boho feel of the feathers, and the vintage look that the key, the burlap, and the distressed metallic "D" give the wreath.
I definitely love how it looks up against the colour of our door, and with the little golden "Hello" sticker I have on it.
To make this wreath, I bought the following supplies from Michaels (armed with my 30% off coupon!):
- oval grapevine wreath
- pre-pleated burlap ribbon (love this stuff, but you could also ruffle or pleat the ribbon yourself)
- a decorative metal key (from their dollar bins at the checkout line)
- 2 packages of peacock feathers (they come in pairs; I found them in the kid's craft section)
- 1 package of pheasant tail feathers (2 per pack)
- 1 peacock plume pick (from the floral decor section)
- faux hydrangea in deep teal
- faux mums in lime green
This was a very simple DIY. I first arranged everything without gluing it to see where I wanted everything placed, then I carefully took all of the elements off of the wreath and glued them back in their spots with a glue gun. Little C helped me choose spots for everything; my 5 year old has quite the eye!
I wrapped a few inches of the wreath on the left with the burlap ribbon, and glued the key over top.
On the right hand side, I placed the large teal hydrangea off-center, glued feathers in a pleasing arrangement around the flower, and glued some of the green mums around the hydrangea to balance it all.
I strung the galvanized "D" from the top of the wreath with string, and voila! My vintage inspired Fall wreath is finished and ready to greet my guests (and me).
