Good morning blog friends!
I'm glad you liked the Ally Pally photos yesterday, thanks for stopping by and leaving your comments.
Today's post is Anna autumnal offering which is currently hanging on our front door and will do so until Christmas, with maybe a slight alteration over Halloween. For my newer followers, a little recap of previous door wreaths from this year....
I've had door wreaths for many years, having admired them on doors of the homes of US family and friends. I think the autumn colours are my favourites, rich browns, yellows and oranges, so I really enjoyed putting this one together a few weeks ago.
I stared with a plain grapevine wreath - we have a massive grapevine in our garden and this year I had visions of drying my own, but the weather has been so poor over the summer that the grapes haven't even turned red! The hens have also taken a liking to th leaves and stripped a lot of the lower branches. But if the weather changes again at the weekend and I get the chance I will try and harvest some for a wreath next year. Anyway, this one was purchased quite cheaply from Calico Crafts, along with the gorgeous orange foliage garland. I wound the garland around the wreath and then added some felt leaves which I had cut using Spellbinders dies. At the bottom I also added leaves cut from craft foil.
Hope you like it and thanks for stopping by!
