I finally removed my spring/summer wreath from over my mantel, and decided it was time to make a new fall wreath.
I normally always grab a round wreath, but this time I decided to opt for an oval shaped one.
I always lay out my decorations before attaching, to see how I like them, and move them around if I am not happy with the design. I have recently become obsessed with cotton bolls, most likely because I love a cozy, farmhouse feel, and it reminds me of my grandmother.
I liked the way this looked, so I began attaching to the wreath form.
I used some jute twine to attach the cotton stems, and hot glue for the flowers, acorn, and feathers.
I added a simple bow, and I was done. It really didn’t take long, and I was happy with the result. I thought of adding some pumpkins and leaves, but realized that in this case simple was better.
