Heartwarming Wreath

Kennedy Fir Harvest Wreath

A wreath is a lovely decorative piece that symbolizes life and love. A homemade wreath gives a sense of uniqueness and warmth, making it a meaningful gift for loved ones that they can display on their porch. An autumn wreath is simple to make, as well as versatile. Starting from the basic grapevine wreath, choose other materials based on your preferred theme. Berry sprigs, flowers, ribbons, dried wheat, and even dried corn cobs all bring a touch of autumn to the front porch. The possibilities are endless with flowers coming in bright colors or more neutral hues. Dark red, bright yellow and pale orange hues work well with a few white elements. You can work with a few small bouquets of hydrangea arranged on one side or a few large flowers grouped together at the bottom part of the wreath. Add berry and tiny flower sprigs or a bow to complement the design. For a more countryside appeal, use dried grass or corn cobs accentuated by a few flowers.
