Fall Wreath

I'm currently working on some Fall/Halloween decorating and crafts and thought I'd share my fall wreath from last year. 

I'll be doing something else this year as I took this wreath apart to use the tray for something else.

This wreath started with my tray which is similar to this one.
I tied a length of ribbon from one handle to the other, adding a bow at each end and wired in a fall spray of pumpkins and leaves.
I also added silver glitter leaves and mercury glass acorns.
An extra length of ribbon tied to the top handle made it possible to hang.
I layered it over a gold frame hung over the fireplace mirror and called it done.
I'm posting this today because I have many new readers that may have missed it
last year.

I really loved how this turned out...kind of sorry I took it all apart.
But that forces me to come up with a new idea for this year...doesn't it?

Thanks for the inspiration. I have similar acorn ornaments for Christmas but I never thought to use them in the fall.

What a great job you did with that wreath. I had tons of ideas this year, but with my new job, I just don't have time. I hope thinks will settle a little later so I can decorate my heart out!
