Fall Wreath....

Hi Everyone!  I wanted to show you the fall wreath I made.  I took it to the Essex Labor Day Market, but it didn't sell.  So I'll be taking it this weekend to the craft fair.  I made it to show off the wreath stands I made.  I have found that if you have a wreath stand and no wreath on it, people just don't know what to do with it.  I always try to make sure and have at least one wreath.  So this is the one I made.
 I used a grapevine wreath as my base.  And added a multi-colored pip berry garland to it.  But it seemed a bit dark.  So I added some 12" pip berry picks that had some of the same colors as the multi-colored ones but also had cream ones in it to lighten it up.
 Then I added these rusty metal maple leaf picks to it.
 And painted this metal welcome sign and wired it on.
 Next I took this rusty metal dragonfly.  It too was a bit dark so I added a touch of red to the wings and face to help it stand out.
 And I added some pine cones and the burlap to hang the wreath by.
 And a group of acorns.
And there you have it.  A simple fall wreath.  And if it doesn't sell, I'll be perfectly happy to hang it on my door.  Well, thanks for stopping by.
