Cotton Fall Wreath and Décor for the Entryway

Cotton Fall Wreath

Every morning for the past few weeks I woke up and looked out the window. A few leaves have turned color, but as soon as I look at the weather report — the heat and humidity has yet to leave North Carolina. Will fall ever arrive? I want to wear flannel shirts and boots. I want cooler temperatures so I can stop sweating the minute I step outside. To usher fall into our area, I decided to make a super simple Cotton Fall Wreath. You won’t believe how easy this wreath was to make!

This wreath was so simple to create, I didn’t take step-by-step photos. Gasp!

Really, it’s so simple, all you have to do is tuck preserved leaves into the cotton wreath. Yup, just tucked, no glue or anything!

Then loop a strip of burlap (or ribbon of your choice) through the top and pin it to the top of your door using a flat thumbtack.

    So pretty! I never realized how nice natural cotton like this looks. The only thing I’d worry about with this is the wind blowing all the leaves away, but I suppose it’s not the end of the world if that were to happen. They’re just leaves, after all 🙂

    I love it! Since no one sees my decor because my apartment is surrounded by a forest the boyfriend said I could decorate his house for the seasons. Yay! I’m excited! I LOVE that wreath. I’m on a wreath kick lately, his mom made a pretty awesome one she told me how to make too. Happy Friday!
