Autumn Wreaths

Millions of colored leaves in shades of deep red, sizzling orange, bright yellow and even burgundy are synonymous with New England in the fall.

So why not have a leaf-covered wreath on the front door?

After admiring some beautiful wreaths in a store but then seeing their price tags, I went home without one.

A short time later, my daughter brought one over that she made for me.

It was perfect!  

The other little wreath, shown at the top of the post, came from one of my sisters who retired it and it's now a new addition to the decor around here this year.

There's no need to spend a bucket of money on decorations (unless, of course, money is no object for you. But not too many people I know are really well-to-do.ha!)

Joining Home and Garden Thursday on Kathy's charming blog, A Delightsome Life.  Stop by and enjoy all the great posts.

Do not have wreaths at my one to make them for me and I'm not a bit crafty...but YOURS are just darling.

Wreaths create a very festive atmosphere! I love having one on my door!

Susan said...

I always had a wreath on my door--not the case in the rental we're in...maybe because it doesn't quiet feel like home yet. Happy Fall, dear friend, XOXO

Your wreaths are perfect for fall. The colors are so vibrant and evocative of the New England hillsides. I love the autumn palette, don't you?

I do have several wreaths at my home that I really enjoy; some are inside and 2 are outside. They do add a homey look. One I made from some vines that I found on a walk and just added some bittersweet to. Perfect for Autumn.

Looks like you enjoy your wreaths also.

I don't use wreaths except at Christmas time. I may try some other holiday wreaths next year!

Very nice! I need to get one for my door. :) Have a great weekend!

I don't put wreathes out - but I sure do love yours. I have all the 'stuff' to make one, but haven't got around to it yet.

Your wreathe is pretty Susan.
