Using unusual branches and vines as a base for creating your own autumn wreath. The outcome is really up to you and your own personal style, surprise us with the unexpected, go through your junk drawers, garden sheds and art supplies to find materials that will add unique flavor. Add some old silver forks, spoons, and knives, spiced oranges, lemons, and cinnamon sticks to create a wreath that would delight a foodie! Make a colorful display with old ribbons, patches of fabric, measuring tape, spools, tassels, knitting needles, and buttons for a crafty front door with loads of personality. If your focus is nature, use some of those bird nests you’ve been collecting, the seed pods, and even some millet to attract birds to your door!
