Three New Wreaths for the 2012 Fall Season



Neutral color wreaths in beiges and browns introduce the festive flair of the fall months without overpowering other design elements in the room. 

With the green apple, gold pear, straw flowers and pale felt flowers in the wreath directly to the left, this 12-inch round wall or door hanging will work with subtle green, beige, gray, and white color schemes as well as the bolder oranges, red, browns, and dark green furniture and walls.




Earthy browns and reds are festive hues adding warmth to the fall months. This wreath is a larger 14 inch round, featuring fresh pine cones, faux glittery apples, and rolled flowers fashioned from wool merino felt. The burnt orange felt combined with deep wine colored felt are dramatic and balance out the dark autumnal earthiness of the yarn. Great versatility whether hung on over a fireplace mantle or a pastel door.

This sandy colored 14-inch wreath is dressed up for the holidays with a large cornucopia-like corsage of burnt orange handcrafted flowers, faux glitter ripe apples,  berries and oak leaves. Very warm and autumnal, it's a perfect homey touch for the family room or dining area. 

Just imagine these handmade wreaths greeting Thanksgiving dinner guests at the front door! 

Also appropriate for year-round use because of the ability of subdued colors to stay demurely in the background, all the while complementing the decor,  whether that decor be Traditional, Southwestern, Coastal, Urban, or Country Chic.
