Rustic Fall Door Swag



I'll be taking a break from blogging this week, but I have some super talented friends who have graciously accepted to take over my blog for the week.  They all share a love for DIY and creating thrifty projects for their home.  You may even notice some of these sweet girls from our monthly DIY challenges.  I hope you'll take a minute to check out their blogs and don't forget to say hi!

Hi Little House of Four peeps! I'm Emily and I blog over at Table & Hearth where I share all about DIY projects, home decor, crafts, and recipes from our little home on the gulf coast of Texas. I'm super excited be be over here with you guys sharing this project for my friend Katie! We don't really have much of a fall down here unfortunately and I must admit that I don't really do much fall decorating because of it, even though it's my favorite season :( Last time I was at the beach though, I gathered a handful of fallen sea oats and had the inspiration to put together this simple swag for our front door!

So easy and cute! A few strands of grass, some fall leaves, and burlap ribbon make this super cute fall door swag!


 There's only a handful of simple supplies needed and it couldn't be easier to put together.
Supplies Needed:
  • Handful of grass blooms, like wheat or oats
  • Fall picks from the craft store, I used a burlap sunflower and wispy feather-ish one
  • Twist tie
  • Burlap wire ribbon
  • Hot glue gun
  • Scissors
After arranging my stalks based on length, I twist-tied them and the picks together. I wanted to be able to re-use them in other decor arrangements later so I didn't want to glue them together or anything. After tying, I glued a small piece of ribbon around the twist tie to cover it up.

 I got some faux fall leaves as well (they aren't in the pic above) and glued them on top of the ribbon, then glued the burlap sunflower on top of them so it wouldn't turn. Once they were all stuck, I used my wired burlap ribbon and wrapped that around everything, tied it, then left the tails long enough to hook down on a Command hook on the back of our door. I love this way of hanging wreaths because you don't have to see a hook on the door holding it :)

 That's it! Simple, quick, cheap, and something a little bit different than your traditional circle wreath!

I love that it's fall, but still slightly coastal with the burlap and sea oats. Using the shades of brown and just a touch of yellow and orange keep it nicely neutral but still feeling like real leaves changing color. So easy and cute!

I think it would look amazing with a handful of wheat stalks with a neutral plaid ribbon. I may just have to make one like that shortly!
