Homemade Fall Wreath

It’s that beautiful time of the year, once again! Mother Nature is changing into her colorful clothes!

Autumn is a second spring when every leaf is a flower. – Albert Camus

Because autumn always inspires me, I wanted to celebrate it in a special way, and what better way than by decorating the house with a gorgeous wreath made out of leaves. Amazing what a jog through the forest can do to my creativity level 🙂

What you will need:

  • Flexible twigs
  • Short straight sticks
  • Leaves both on twigs and individual
  • Acorns
  • Pine cones
  • Thin string – I used a black string
  • Short fabric strip, for a ribbon; / a ribbon.

Instructions – Step by step:

Fall Wreath step by step

  1. I started by using the two flexible twigs to create a circle, as a base for the wreath.
  2. Next, I started adding the green leaves to the circle, using string where needed, in order to fix them in place.
  3. The red leaves were added next, giving the wreath some color.
  4. I used string to fix the cones and the acorns to the circle. Using acorns which still have a bit of tail left, makes the job go much smoother.
  5. The short straight sticks went all around the circle, framing the leaves.
  6. And last but not least, I used the fabric strip to make a ribbon for the wreath. You can go for whatever color you like, I used what I had around the house.
  7. Last step is to find a door, fix the wreath, step back and admire it 🙂 Job well done!

Autumn Wreath

In case you decide to make your own, please consider using only twigs, leaves, acorns and cones which you already find on the ground. I believe it’s much better to recycle what the trees don’t need anymore, rather than to hurt the plants for our entertainment.

I hope you enjoyed it, and you found the instructions useful. Happy Fall!

First Year Anniversary!

Time flies by, that’s for sure! It feels like only yesterday I wrote the first few words on AllRightChoices.com, and today I realized it’s been a full year!

It all started a year ago, on September 3rd, when I quit my job, and I wanted to find an original way to say goodbye to my team and also inspire others to make the right choices about the best career path possible.

This is how AllRightChoices came to life, and it slowly became an inspirational life story, with the ultimate goal of motivating everyone around me, and putting a smile on their faces. Gradually, more and more people told me I inspired them to make the right changes in their lives, and all their beautiful stories made me keep going.

Now, a year and 145 blog posts later, with more than 800 followers from 3 different social networks, I would say AllRightChoices.com is doing a pretty good job.

I would like to thank all of you for your support, friendship and kind words! It’s been a pleasure to have you on board on this amazing trip and I look forward to a new year full of adventures!
