A Husky Harvest

Nothing says autumn quite like a harvest-themed fall wreath. Glue corn husks, acorns, pine cones or whatever else you can find onto a pre-made Styrofoam wreath base to create a traditional circular wreath; or gather a few ears of dried corn in some burlap for a rustic door decoration.

A Leaf Fall Wreath

(Say that 3 times fast.) Is your favorite part of fall is the brilliant colors of the leaves? Create a fall wreath with leaves! It can be seasonal or annual, depending on the leaves you use. For a one-time decoration, gather leaves in all colors from outside. If you want to use this again next year, find silk faux leaves at the craft store.

Fall Rake Wreath

For an eclectic take on fall decor, build a rake wreath. Rather than having a pre-made wreath base, you will wrap various materials around the head of an old rake. Find one at a thrift store and remove the top from the handle. This unconventional decoration is sure to evoke images of raking leaves outdoors.
