create: my hodgepodge fall wreath!

so about a month or so ago, I gathered some fabric scraps and made this simple fabric scrap wreath:
it felt i removed it from the wall last week and replaced it with this festive angel made from branches and berries (no, i cant take credit for it...thanks goodwill!)

but this weekend, i was inspired to finish my fall wreath in time for thanksgiving...i hunted through my craft closet and came up with this crazy, hodgepodge wreath that i just LOVE LOVE LOVE....

basically, i took my original fabric scrap wreath and hot-glued yarn poms and lotus pods around the interior....the yarn poms were SUPER easy to make (see a tutorial here...i left mine shaggy!) and the lotus pods i found at a local antique mall for $2....

so the berry-and-twig-angel has been demoted, and my super fun fall wreath has once again earned its place back on the wall....i know this may not be everyone's style, but i just LOVE the fabric scraps, shaggy yarn poms, and lotus pods together.... me this just screams HAPPY FALL!


  1. your original shaggy fabric wreath was the perfect background for the pom poms and dried pods. Without that, I don't think the wreath would have pulled off nearly as well... cool!
