Rustic Twig Wreath

Good morning, lovelies!
I know I have shared with you before that the closest Hobby Lobby
or Michaels is two hours away. . .sad, I know.
So it's not easy for me to go pick up craft supplies whenever I need them.
Often I have to wait or be creative and think of an alternative idea
which was the case with this twig wreath.


I was in the "mood" to make a wreath for my back door,
but didn't have any wreath supplies
so I took a walk in my yard and gathered a bunch of dead twigs.
I simply tied the corners together with some brown string
and voila! a twig wreath.


I used fake leaves that I had from last year
and hot glued them on along with a pine cone
and crab apples from my tree :)



I tied on some soft green burlap for the hanger.



Create a rustic and pretty wreath with items from your very own yard.


Love and hugs to you, friends!

Now this is just adorable! I never would have thought of picking up sticks for a wreath. I have definitely used our own pine cones, though. They come in handy for decorating all during autumn and winter :)

I started a photography blog because I my book posts were getting lost amid all the other stuff on Stuff & Nonsense. I'll be making all future non-book related at HIS World...as I see it - http://annepayne.wordpress.com

I still have to figure out some bugs as far as leaving comments and why my picture doesn't show up, but it is me commenting ;)

Just wanted to let you know where my tea post will be showing up :)

Hi Stephanie! I like the balance of the colors on your twig wreath! You have such an eye for color.

I had no idea Amy's son was lost!!! Thank you for the update.
Blessings,
Ceil

What an adorable idea -- making a wreath from twigs!
I love the burlap hanger and the pine cones -- you're a very creative lady!

Hi Stephanie! Your twig wreath is really cute - you have such pretty ideas for your crafts. There was a time when we didn't have a Hobby Lobby either, but now we have HL and Michaels. I do shop there time to time for some of their products. We'll just have to pray one or both of them into your area. ;)

Stephanie
I love your twig wreath!
I have gotten rid of many of my holiday decoration these last few years and instead started decorating with natural substances. Your wreath would work for Christmas too, just change the leaves to greenery!

Simply sweet and lovely wreath.

You are so creative. Lovely wreath and much less expensive that Hobby Lobby.

Robyn said...

Your primitive wreath turned out soooo cute, my friend! I just love when projects come together with what's on hand and you certainly did just that. How creative you are. xo

I love it's simplicity and primitive feel. I have to pin it to my I Love Wreaths board!

Gina said...

Stephanie, your wreath is perfect! Ingenuity at its best! :-)

Gina said...

Stephanie, it's me again. I am so sorry for the loss of your dear Great Grandmother. May the Lord fill your heart with such sweet memories of her. {{HUGS}}

... I like your wreath Stephanie.... so pretty.... many years ago I let my May bush grow tall with new growth and then I cut them and stripped the leaves from them and made some roundish wreaths using string to hold them together.... they looked great..... I still use them at Christmas....
Hugs ... Barb xxx

Dear Stephanie, I really like your wreath. It is lovely! It would look nice anywhere you put it I'm sure. I like how you put the leaves at the corners. At first I thought the top was all round...the hanger is good looking too. You inspire us so.....no wonder your lovely blog is called 'The Enchanting Rose'...I like it all =) Maggie

Wanda said...

Bloom where you're planted. You make that come to life, in finding things of beauty without getting out of your yard. You bloom so beautifully.

Cheryl @ TFD said...

Love it! I used to take grapevines and twist them into a wreath and decorate. Simple things are the best!

Debbie Harris said...

That is adorable, Stephanie. What a great idea using the apples.
You are so like grandma Betty, in creating things with simplicity.
Today was a delightful day with you and the little one!! Let's do it again and take the truck. :-)
Love you, Mom

Beatrice Euphemie said...

I love this Stephanie! Who needs a craft store when you are this creative? This would make an adorable frame, too! Have a sweet week! xo Karen

Anna said...

Lovely !

Very creative use of things in your yard and it is very pretty. The two trees that we did have in our yard died from a disease so we are just down to one little tree, so sad I know.

vic said...

Wow Stephanie this is beautiful I love the whole wreath it's gorgeous well done you :)
Hugs

You do not need one of those store. You did great with your own ideas and materials.

bj said...

How adorable...I love it's simplicity and I do believe I'll try to make my self one, too.

Hi Stephanie,
This is so adorable. I love this wreath and the simplicity of it for the fall season.
You are so creative and talented my friend. Your surroundings are your art store!!
Thanks for the inspiration. I would love to try this.
Hugs and Blessings!

Mindy Whipple said...

I love decorating with bits of nature and the simplicity of this wreath is just so pretty. Enjoy your week!

Janneke said...

A simple but beautiful wreath!

Deborah Montgomery said...

I think having to get creative with what's at hand can be more satisfying than a trip to the store. Your twig wreath is simple and elegant. It made me think of the quote "necessity is the mother of invention!" You "invented" a beautiful wreath.

kathyinozarks said...

your wreath turned out perfect-and probably more fun to make too-we live over an hour away too from any craft stores

Vicky Hunt said...

I just love it Stephanie! It is so simple but so pretty. Just perfect for fall. You are so creative my friend. The little crab apples are too sweet. Have a happy Thursday.

Blessings, Vicky

Denise said...

Beyond beautiful, just like you.

Scrappy quilter said...

Okay that is just so cute. What a great way to make something beautiful and yet frugal.

Michele @ The Nest at Finch Rest said...

I am SO glad I found you as I love teacups and teapots and tea parties and all things tea!

I am your newest follower. : - )

Poppy said...

A very pretty and unique fall wreath, Stephanie! Yes, you do have a 2 hour drive to the craft store, but compared to me, who doesn't even have a craft store, you're practically next door!!

Happy weekend!

Hugs,
Poppy

SarahGeorge said...

Lovely idea for sure, it looks beautiful!! :)

Teri said...

Dear Stephanie ... rustic and simple charm for the fall season! ♥ Weekend Blessings
