Layered Autumn Wreath on Autumn Plate

Layered Autumn Wreath onto Autumn Plate

Hey Y'all! Hope your Saturday is as lovely
as ours is down here in South Georgia!
Yesterday was in the 90s, and it's gonna
be cooking again today... I know...
not very Fall-ish, although our mornings
have been very pleasant. But I wanted to share
this idea I found over at
Here is her finished photo
Here is the LINK to her site so you can see
how she performed her transformation
from So-So to Sensational!
I knew I could do something similar with my fall wreath.
Here is my original wreath photo.
It all looks nice, except decided I didn't like 
the Wreath Stand stick glaring at me... 
every time I walked by... so to hide it, 
I attached my Autumn Blessings plate, which
has wiring in the back for hanging,
onto the arms of the wreath stand.

Ta-da! Much better, don't you think?
Thanks, Barb, for the idea.

    1. Hey Jo May! thanks - the plate idea really does cover that unsightly "stick" - I'm just a little impatient for fall - the bugs and heat drive me indoors, but I want to be o-u-t out. Thanks for stopping by.

  4. Love this idea! Wishing you a nice week ahead.

  5. Oh, yes, it is better! I think the plate makes it look much prettier! I sure am happy for some fall weather, and itching to get to the craft store so I can make a new wreath!

  6. Isn't fall decorating the best?!?!? The colors, the textures!! Your arrangement is beautiful. :)

  7. Great idea! I love layering of just about everything -- always want that extra dimension or texture.
