Wreaths are in some cases considered a Christmas-only decor. This is a short-sighted view, as a stunning wreath can be used to decorate a home for any season.
Autumn wreaths frequently try to take the most stunning components of the season and to integrate them in one creative declaration. They will typically include the striking colours of Autumn foliage and often reflect an “outdoors” or “country” appearance.
Autumn wreaths can be based upon any number of structures. Some have actually found the rustic and neutral appearance of a grapevine wreath makes a best foundation for an autumn wreath. Others may choose to work from a woodier branch base. It is even possible to start with a standard wreath form (typically made from foam and readily available at craft and hobby stores). Whatever option is used can work wonderfully as a springboard for stunning Autumn designing.
Autumn wreaths can be made from the season’s fallen leaves. Such jobs, although gorgeous, are temporary as the leaves dry and fracture. As such, many wreath makers trust silk and other synthetic leaves to embellish their wreaths. Accents are frequently offered by simple homemade bows. Little seasonal decors (for instance a mini scarecrow) are sometimes connected to the completed product with a glue gun as a way of honouring the autumn months.
There are no rules or limitations one should follow when producing an Autumn wreath. The concept is to capture the essence of Autumn in the wreath, and that can be accomplished in any number of ways. An autumn wreath is an exercise in imagination and many gorgeous decors have actually been produced around the style.
Wreaths are not specifically for the Christmas holidays. A decorative wreath can brighten any home, and wreaths commemorating Autumn provide a special opportunity to bring the essence of the outdoors into one’s house.
