Autumn Wreath

I was feeling a bit crafty this weekend, so I made a wreath for our front door that had a Fall feel. This cool weather has been so nice, so I made a cup of tea and this is what I came up with.

I had a plain wreath in the shed, though I have no idea why, so I just bought a few little additions. At the craft store I got a little box of Styrofoam pumpkins in various sizes with a few pine cones thrown in and a few bits of garland that are usually used in floral arrangements.

What a mess, right?
I moved to the floor in the living room to craft so I could watch a movie with the husband at the same time. So, please excuse my awesome living room rug. Arrange  your pumpkins and pine cones in your wreath before you glue them so you have an idea of your design. I pulled the little orange sprigs off of the floral picks because I didn't want a lot of green in my fall wreath.

Then, you'll want to take your handy hot glue gun and get to work finalizing your design. Make sure if you put a bit of paper or an old folder down so that you don't drip hot glue on your wooden floors. That's a lesson I don't want you to also have to learn the hard way.

After you've glued all your bits together and onto the wreath, find yourself a bit of ribbon to tie on the top to  hang it on your door or you can just do what I did and hang it directly on the hook. Here is the final product:
