As much as I craft, I’m not really a decorator, but this year more than any other I’ve been feeling a desire to decorate our front porch for fall.
It all started with the apple-themed fall porch decor I made for Walnut Hollow, but then I decided we really needed a wreath.
I happened to be at the craft store for supplies for another project when I saw that wreaths were on sale, so I picked up a simple grapevine one that it looks like I paid about $5 for (thank, Jo-Ann coupons!). I also grabbed 20 feet of orange burlap ribbon (regular $8.99, I spent $5.39) and decided I would make a burlap bow to decorate it. It’s super simple, festive and removable!
I like this idea because it’s really easy, you need no real crafty skills (and only five or 10 minutes) to make it, and you can easily change it out for different seasons.
- 18-inch grapevine wreath
- 20 feet burlap ribbon or wide ribbon of your choice
- floral wire or a long twist tie
Decide how big you want your bow to be. I eyeballed it but you could measure if you want. Start with a length of ribbon laid out that’s the full width of the bow, then fold the end of the ribbon over the top so the edge is in the middle.
Use a long twist tie or floral wire to secure the bow to the wreath.
Hang on the door, puff some more, trim the tails as necessary to make them even and admire your handiwork all autumn long.
Do you decorate the porch for fall or Halloween? I’d love to hear what you do!
