I had this trellis piece from a few years ago, obviously a spring look.
I pulled everything off and threw it away. The spring/summer
flowers had seen their best days and weren't worth saving.
Gather up a fall flowers and ribbons.
I used 2 fall bushes and cut them apart. I also had
a few fall picks with pumpkins, acorns and sunflowers.
There is no real method to my "design". I just place things
around the base until they look the way I want them to. Then I
start using the glue gun and thin wire to attach things permanently.
This year I decided to go with more muted colors
and stay away from the traditional orange and yellows.
I used a dark rusty/burgundy ribbon as well as a brown one.
I love the sparkly acorns that I found at Hobby Lobby.
The finished piece is quite a change from my
usual wreath. It is a little sparkly, a little less
rustic than I usually use in the fall, but I think I like it
for a change. I think it will look nice against the brick of the house.
