Autumn Wreath: Ta-Dah


Hello............ So it's Ta-DAh time for the Autumn wreath.

 I'm so pleased I decided to go for it and make the wreath this year.  As in the end it came together in just a few weeks, as I borrowed a lot of pieces from my existing wreaths.


So shall we go on a little tour....

This is the bottom left part of the wreath, with Leaves, Roses Anemones, and Berries, the cute little Daisies are buttons and I think they add the finishing touch.


Next up we have the top right, I'm really pleased with how the colours tone in so well together, when I started planning  the colour scheme for the wreath, I  wanted it to be in Heather and Berry tones with a little bit of silver and grey for Frosty Sparkle. 

Much more in keeping with the Summerhouse palette, than if I used oranges and reds.  Hopefully it conveys Autumn to you in it's own way? Plus all the yarn came from my stash.


Moving onto the top right, as always I added a little more decoration to the wreath by placing beads between some of the pins and the flowers


and finally the bottom left.


So we are nearly there, 

the top of the wreaths centre piece is Roses, leaves and little flowers, with knitted leaves and berries covering the inner part of the wreath.  The Berries came from a artificial sprig and I simply cut and wired them before pinning them into place.


The main centrepiece at the bottom of the wreath is a Rose surround by knitted leaves with the little hand beaded Blackberries pinned into place.

As for the ribbon after trying several different Purples I opted for this Tartan. Which has a bit of history, the ribbon was left over from my sister wedding and seeing as it was there wedding Anniversary on Saturday when I assembled the wreath it seemed fitting.

So are you ready........

My Autumn time Wreath.
I'd love to know what you make of it?

Me, I'm pleased with how it turned out, the colours are just my cup of tea.


At the moment I've just started reading 'Thirteen Moons' by Charles Frazier I really enjoyed reading Cold Mountain so I'm looking forward to reading this one.

  10. It turned out so well! I really like the way you introduced non-crocheted items like felt or beads - they really lift it and give it more depth. x

  11. So lovely! The berry and especially the frosty note makes it so unique - much better than the "usual" and probably more obvious orange and red!
