I thought you might all like to know that Blondie Spence of Vintage Primitives has a wonderful FREE tutorial on her Vintage Primitives blog about creating a simple Fall wreath.
Here's what Blondie had to say:
Thought I would share with you a plain and simple wreath that takes nothing more than what you may have in your garden.
First you need to gather some elements: grapevine wreath, sweet herbs, string, anything else you like - I had wrapped some Virginia creeper, honeysuckle vine and wisteria vines into wreaths a while back and hung them on the fence to dry and wait for me to get back with them.
I used some sweet annie and artemesia
and I also added some dried okra
I fashioned the sweet annie and the artemesia in opposite sides of the wreath and tied in place. Then I clipped a piece off of a sanservia plant, tucked that in with the okra and oh yes, I also grabbed some more grapevine ivy and tied it all up together.
This is functional; great for outdoors and I will put some ribbon around it another time. Ta Daaaaaaaaaaaaaaaa Smells good and is prim n pretty!
