New Fall Wreath

Seriously something is wrong with me...I am starting projects and actually finishing them!  I don't even know who I am anymore ;)

I figured that Fall is a couple of days away so I should probably get out some of my decorations.  And on a whim I decided to make a new fall wreath.  I saw these beauties on Pinterest and was inspired.

I love my Spring wreath and had a hard time taking it down but I love the replacement just as much if not more!!

I had this huge wreath that at Christmas time I had wrapped with a fuzzy white yarn and stuck in some sparkly poinsettias and then after Christmas I took out the flowers and hung it in my bathroom waiting for some inspiration.

I thought it would be perfect for my new Fall wreath.

At first I was going to just wrap brown yarn on top of the white but well that lasted about this long...

So then I decided to use the brown yarn as an accent and made little crisscrosses all around.  I wasn't really sure what to do next until I saw the argyle looking wreaths I showed you above.  I chose charcoal and yellow diamonds.  I really wanted the leaves that I planned on adding to stand out so I went with white felt flowers.  I did two different shapes of leaves in three colors.  I am really pleased with the end result.

Now if the weather would just get cooler...
