A few months ago I painted my front door a fabulous bright green and gave my entryway a makeover. Now that fall is here, I wanted to add a touch of autumn but I couldn’t imagine pairing leaves in shades of rust and brown with my bright door. Instead, I decided to make a colorful monogrammed fall wreath with a nontraditional color scheme.
To make the wreath, I started with a long leafy garland from the craft store. I cut the leaves off and spray painted them in bright colors. I painted some in traditional fall colors like yellow and red and painted others in pink and green. I wanted a vivid mix that would stand out against my green door.
Using hot glue, I layered them on a grapevine wreath, mixing the colors and interspersing some burlap leaves.
When the leaves were all glued on, I added a metal letter …
… and tied it with a piece of red ribbon.
I love the way this simple wreath turned out and the vivid colors look great against my bright door!
Do you embrace traditional colors for fall or do you decorate with what you love?
