The First Wreath of the Year

Fall is upon us! The actual first day of the season MAY be September 22nd, but my first day is the 1st. My sister, Ryann, and I went on one of our many thrilling Hobby Lobby trips and she had the idea for me to make a wreath. I, of course, said YASSSS!!

My all time favorite base for my wreaths is the scattered trig base. They come in all different shapes and sizes. There is even a square one that would be really cute and abstract. After you pick your base you can kind of, sort of, pretty much GO CRAZY! Try to stick to a few primary colors and one overall theme. I find picking 3 strong main colors works best, but you do you!


Then you can add your choice of garland. It’s always a good idea to start off a bit basic with your garland. That way throughout your craft you can add as much as you want.


After you have secured the garland, then begins the fun part! DECORATING! There is a little bit of strategy behind the madness, but you basically just start placing everything in a way that looks best to you. BUT, do not, I repeat DO NOT secure anything until the very end. I promise it will save you a lot of pain and heartache!

Fall in love.


And there you have it! The first of MANY wreaths for 2016!


Stay Blissful,
