{Thankful} Harvest Wreath

Have you recovered from Halloween yet?  I barely have…it took me quite some time to take down my Haunted House fun! 

Does it seem like Thanksgiving totally gets overlooked?  It is so important to remember daily all that we are grateful for, but not always easy.  Getting in the thankful spirit of the month is sure to help right?  I am excited for Christmas, don’t get me wrong, but trying to enjoy the now.

I am going to soak up this last bit of fall…

Enjoy the beautiful scenery.

Enjoy my kids, husband and Family.

And remember all that I have to be grateful for.

If you follow me on Twitter, each day of November I will be sharing something I am grateful for.

And just in case you need some inspiration to get your home all harvest-y and thankful, here is one of my Autumn wreaths I made,

with a Thanksgiving feel.

It has a grapevine base and a mix of greens including magnolia & tea leaves.


For a pop of color some fall leaves and my favorite hops which loosely hang as if they grew right out of the wreath.


Filled in with tiny green blossoms and not to forget the fun gourds which give it that harvest bounty feel.


Hanging from beautiful brown ribbon for the finishing touch. 

One of the reasons I love creating fall wreaths is because of all the elements you can mix in.  Look outside and take inspiration from nature.  See how even totally different colors and textures mix in beautifully and make such a pretty picture. 


I hope you enjoy the rest of this beautiful season

and that you have a lot to be grateful for.
