Autumn Wreathes

Mum wanted an autumn wreath after seeing them in Canada last fall.  She has been hinting at me for a while but last Thursday I decided to pluck up the courage and have a go.  I opted for 'au natural' rather than buying plastic leaves etc (to go outside I couldn't use paper ones- my original idea).  This first wreath was made using two coat hangers as the base, apple wood twigs and string.  The decoration was from the garden.  Although there were quite a few plants with red berries in the garden, those with nice coloured leaves (which didn't fall off the moment I touched them) were a bit lacking.
On Friday I wanted to make a more 'leafy' wreath and so went for a walk up the road with a plastic bag!  The base of this wreath is just twigs and string (no coat hangers!!!).
 The second wreath has made it to the front door while the first is hung up on one of the post of the decking by the back door.  I have a feeling the leaves are going to fall out of this one, but I can always top them up!

They're both beautiful but I think the second one is my favourite. What a lovely idea! Lx
