Fall Wreath Blog Hop


Welcome everyone to Fall in love with Autumn blog hop.
Featuring a fall wreath collection:
Let me just start with how much I heart fall {sigh}.  Leaves turning gorgeous shades of orange, red and brown.  This something I totally miss in Oregon. The sweet aromas of hot cocoa and apple cider coming out of the kitchen. Anything to do with fall fashions, boots, sweaters and pretty scarves!  Oh, I can go on and on!  Well with that being said I have a treat for all of you today I have a group of talented ladies that cant wait to share with you their fall wreath that they created for this gorgeous season.  We hope to inspire you and fall in love with autumn!  Enjoy!

There is blog candy given away for this hop.  The grand prize is a $20.00 gift card to Michaels or Joanns!  You choose!  The rules are as follows; you must become a follower of each blog and leave a comment on every stop.  Winner will be selected on 9-17-12
If you came from Marias your in the right place.

I saw these wreaths and fell in love so I set out to find the things to make them. I finally was able to find theme; I dont know what you would call it. Its like a wired mesh netting with glitter. So what you do is every 10 you gather it and bunch it to a wire wreath form. I used floral wire to attach it.
The mesh came from micheals and is about $10 per roll. You need about 2
My wire form was 14 I think.
Im linking a video on how to do it. This is what I found online about them.

I did mine a little different. My form had four bands around it. So I went through and bunched the mesh to each on in a row. Then because it didnt look full enough I went through again and bunched 3 times on each of the outer ring sections.
Sorry the pictures arent the best it ended up being so big that I couldnt get far away enough with out my other door slamming on to me. Not to mention that when I close my screen door it looks like a big orange puff. Oh well. You can also string lights in to the loops to make it light up.



I chose not to add anything else to it and since i have a wreath hook on my door already it worked out great. you could add spider webs and fake spiders. 
the mesh comes in lots of colors. and now i know where to get it im hooked. 

It ended up costing about 25$ to make. Not to bad.
I think Im going to make a white one with blue lights for winter.

  16. I like it! I've been wanting to use wired mesh, but not sure what to do with it. I just think it's neat stuff. I definitely think adding the lights to it will make it really cool, like the winter idea one.
