Fall is such a gorgeous time of year with all the leaves changing colour. It would be a shame not to capture it somehow, someway, even if for a short while, don’t you think?

So, why not create a wreath straight from the tree before it’s too late?

Fall is the perfect time to harvest leaves once they turn a little on the crispy side.

And while your real fall wreath may not last a long time, dried hydrangeas certainly could!

Regardless of what you use, I suggest tour your yard and add whatever you have!

Since the leaves are fresh off the tree, this type of wreath would do best if left outdoors to keep it cool. So hanging from a front door would be a great choice!

  1. Hi Donna- I am back from my blogging break and I knew you would have something wonderful here for Fall. The wreath is GORGEOUS….one of those things that make me want to slap my forehead and say….Why didn’t I think of that? Blessings- xo Diana

  2. Such beautiful colors. Unfortunately, where I live the leaves haven’t really colored up yet. Maybe for Thanksgiving or Christmas. But they look beautiful. Thanks for sharing.
