Fall Wreaths and a Hanging Door Basket

Hello, I hope everyone is having a wonderful Labor Day weekend!  Today, I spent most of my day in the garage working on some wreaths and a hanging door basket for fall. 

This hanging door basket below was part of an allotment purchase at an estate auction a few weeks ago and let’s just say it did not look like this when I brought it home.  Sad to say, I did not take a before picture because I wasn’t sure I could salvage it.  But with a little paint and dark stain, I think it turned out nice.

I kept the floral simple in this for fall.

On the front of the basket, I Mod Podged a graphic I found from The Graphic Fairy

The fall wreath below was made using an oval grapevine wreath.

I attached fall leaves, pumpkins, cream and brownish orange hydrangeas, a chalkboard and burlap bows. 

And this one, I used a twig wreath.

I attached greens, fall leaves, pumpkins, gourds, berries, pinecones and burlap bows. 

Now I’m off to my sewing room to work on some fabric pumpkins.  I have them all cut out ready to be sewn together. 

As always, thanks for stopping by and I hope you all enjoy the rest of this long holiday weekend.

  14. Very pretty, Gail! Love the basket and the simple florals you added in. Your wreaths are lovely ~ I think that oval one is my favorite. Since it is raining here today, I may hit the attic and get my Fall stuff down. I'm hoping it won't be too hot to do that.
