Two Fall Wreaths

Today is the first day of fall!  I’ve been slowly adding touches of fall to my home and recently made two fall wreaths, one for each of of the main doors that we use.

I made this wreath for our front door.

I’m sharing my wreath as part of a fall ideas tour.  Today eight bloggers are sharing their fall wreaths.  The tour started on Monday, so be sure to follow the links at the bottom of this post to enjoy the fall mantels shared on Monday and the tablescapes shared on Tuesday.   Tomorrow you can check out the thrifty crafts that are shared.




For this year’s front door wreath, I started with a grapevine base and wired on layers of faux leaves, flower and grass blooms, cattails and added a plaid bow in fall colors.

I’ve pulled out my summer annuals and added mums to my front porch urns and can’t wait to buy some pumpkins and gourds to also display on my porch.  Fall Wreath for 2015 by virginiasweetpea


Are Chippendale doors popular in your town?  They are in mine!  Just about every house in my neighborhood has a door with a Chippendale design.  A local hardware store made ours and Mr. SP made a matching one for our porch.  You can see how to make Chippendale railings here.

A fall porch with mums and a pretty wreath is a great way to greet guests.


I love fall displays and really enjoy seeing those of my neighbors when I’m walking my dog.  I hope my neighbors feel the same way about my porch.

Add Curb Appeal to Your Home with a Fall Wreath


I couldn’t let my front porch be alone in having a new wreath for fall so I made a second wreath for the door on our deck that leads to our kitchen.  We live on a corner, so when neighbors walk by they see my front door and they see my deck door.  Since they see both, I like for both doors to have a pretty seasonal wreath to be enjoyed.


This wreath has the same bow, flowers and cattails but the fall foliage is different.  To tell you the truth, I’m not sure which wreath I like better.




I would love for you to pin any of my pictures to Pinterest for others to enjoy!

  10. Paula, both of your wreaths are gorgeous! I like how they are similar since folks can see both doors. Chippendale doors are not common in this area, but when I lived in Columbia, SC, there were many neighborhoods that had homes patterned after Colonial Williamsburg homes. And some of those had Chippendale railings. But I have never seen a door like yours! It is beautiful, especially dressed with your fall wreath!
