WREATHS – THEY’RE NOT JUST FOR YOUR FRONT DOOR

WREATHS - THEY'RE NOT JUST FOR YOUR FRONT DOOR

WREATHS - THEY'RE NOT JUST FOR YOUR FRONT DOOR

When it comes to door decor, we typically find the most popular are wreaths hung on the front of people’s front door. Other areas where wreaths are commonly seen hanging are walls, windows, and above fireplaces. But I would like to share with you that wreaths also make great table decor too! It’s a simple and great way to accent your dining table! Whether you have a small dining table or a large one, you can place your perfectly sized wreath on the center of your table. Faux or real…anything goes!

Remember this post, where I shared how to create this DIY Tri-color Eucalyptus wreath? Well, I dug this fall wreath out of my storage bin and decided to decorate our dining table with it. I nestled three clear glass votive candle holders in the center of the wreath, for an elegant ambiance. Since we have dining for eight, the size of this wreath is plush and brings a pretty fall festive touch to the table.

Give your dining table a makeover and brighten it up by accenting it with your favorite fall wreath!

DIY Fall Decor: TRI-COLOR EUCALYPTUS WREATH

DIY TRI-COLOR EUCALYPTUS WREATH

It was finally time to switch out my summer door wreath to a fall decorated one. I decided to get crafty and create my own DIY wreath using tri-color eucalyptus. Rather than combining the three colors of red, purple and green, I decided to create an ombre-inspired look. It was pretty easy to put together and using a metal wreath form is versatile support for wreaths.

Follow my steps below to recreate the look so that you can dress up your door or wall for the fall harvest season.

DIY TRI-COLOR EUCALYPTUS WREATH

What you will need:

  • 18″ Metal Wreath Form
  • 3 bundles of Tri-Color Eucalyptus Stems
  • Scissors
  • Pruning (Garden) Shears
  • Wreath Door Hanger

DIY TRI-COLOR EUCALYPTUS WREATH

Step 1. Separate your eucalyptus stems by color

Step 2. Choose the color you want to use first (I started with the dark purple stem) then loop your first stem through to the cross bar.

Step 3. Continue adding stems of the same color, until the bottom half of the form is covered. If you find the top of your stems are too long, use your scissors to cut to size.

Step 4. Once you have finished looping one color, start with the next color (I used the red color). You will start to notice that your wreath form is getting full and you may not be able to loop a stem with a thick bottom – this is when you will need to use your shears to cut it. Just be sure to loop and pull the stem as much as you can in order to secure it. You can insert your stems from the back of the form once you see that you have no more space in the front. Continue until you finished adding the second color, then move on to your final color – loop the stems until your form is covered completely.

Step 5. Use your hanger to hang your finished wreath. Step back and take a look at your wreath. With your scissors, snip away any stems that may be too long. I didn’t mind the loose placement of the long stems as it gave off a more organic look – making it seem as if grew out that way.

Display your festive wreath on your wall, mirror or front door, for all to see…it’s the perfect compliment to your home this season!

4 SIMPLE WAYS TO TRANSITION YOUR HOME DECOR FROM SUMMER TO FALL {Part 1}

I can recall when I was a little girl, my mother would swap out the curtains and bedding during certain seasons. The lighter curtains and bedding would be placed for the spring and summer months to the darker/heavier ones for the fall and winter months.
