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. 



  1. Hi Gail, how lovely they all are, I'll have to remember the burlap when I get my wreaths out to update them. Thanks for the inspiration!

  2. They are all so pretty. I guess it's time to decorate for Fall. I love Fall, it's so beautiful and the weather is usually mild.
