Happy Friday. My husband and I are touring colleges with our son this weekend. I can’t even talk about it without a lump forming in my throat. Because we are traveling, I wanted to share a simple layered wreath for the fall season. I hung this layered wreath on the front door over Labor Day weekend and it will stay put through Thanksgiving. I shared a fall wreath I restored from a garage sale a few years ago.
This layered wreath is the combination of two wreaths. I had a grapevine wreath in storage and I purchased the berry wreath last year at Home Goods. When I originally saw the orange berry wreath I passed on it. And then I saw several bloggers share the same wreath in their décor and I sent back to Home Goods and snagged it. It’s versatile for the fall season and I just realized I could use it for the Denver Bronco games! More value!
What I love about this layered wreath is the two wreaths add depth without any effort. Alone, the berry wreath looks fragile on the front door. But adding the grapevine gives this fall wreath more bulk and a great presence to the front porch.
This wreath is on my front door because it’s hearty enough to stand up to the elements. Of course, Colorado has not dipped below 80 degrees this fall and we haven’t had any rain (or snow) this season. We need the moisture for ski season!
How do you bulk up your wreaths? Do you upcycle wreaths for different seasons? I love the challenge of getting a few seasons out of one wreath. The layered look is a fun way to make a wreath look larger and fancier!
Wish us luck this weekend on college visits!
