Fall Grapevine Wreath

It is September now, and time to take down the summer decor and replace with fall. I removed my spring/summer wreath from over my mantel, and decided to make a new one for autumn.
I normally choose a round wreath form, so I decided to go with something different this time around. I purchased an oval one.
I always lay out my decorations before attaching to make sure I like the way it looks. This time I picked cotton bolls. A couple of reasons- it fits my farmhouse decor, and it reminds me of my sainted grandmother. She was a widowed mother of 3 back in the day, and picked cotton for 12 hours a day to make ends meet.
I added some flowers, and a glittered acorn. When I was happy with the placement, I starting attaching everything to the form. I used jute twine to attach the cotton stems, and hot glue for the rest.
I added a few feathers, and tied on a simple bow to finish it off. It came out exactly like I wanted it to.


I like making things that remind me of my heritage, and this project did just that. It makes me smile when I look at it.


Happy crafting!

    I love this. Where did you get the real cotton from?

    So pretty! Do you have a wreath for winter? My fall wreath is always replaced by Christmas wreath but when it's time to take that down I can never find anything without it still looking like the Christmas theme.

    How do you make such a pretty bow?
