Hello my friends! I hosted a luncheon for the ladies in my development today and made a couple of things to give as gifts. I made an all white arrangement for the woman who is the newest resident. I will show you that soon. I also made this Fall wreath for a woman whose birthday is today. This is the finished product on my front door, and I thought I would show you how I made it .I have several of these easels, that make wreath making SO much easier! I also have a small, tabletop one. I started with a plain grapevine wreath. PLEASE forgive the mess in the background. My worktable is in the basement storage area. I also CLEANED it all up AFTER I made this wreath:):)
 Then I always begin with a bow. I did this one with a wired Fall ribbon, love the colors.

 Next comes 2 fall picks, placed on each side of the bow. They contain sunflowers and some acorns, leaves and berries.
 Next is a stem of sunflowers that I cut apart.
 then a BUSH of mums. I always buy bushes and cut them apart, more bang for your buck!!!!!
 This is a bush of mixed fall flowers. I got these at the place where I worked: everything is 50% off the ticketed place, plus they were having a sale of an additional 25% off!!!!
 I also found this great fall nest.
 I filled in with fall leaves, berries, etc. that I had in my "stash"!!!!
 Sorry some of these are blurry...taking a picture and holding the object makes me shake:):):)
I found this great fall nest too.
 She really liked it!!!
