Southern Living Inspired Fall Wreath

Posted by on Sep 25, 2015 in Uncategorized | 6 comments

I love magazines.

And until my last yard sale…I might have been a magazine hoarder.

Every time one arrives in the mailbox, I can’t wait for the next break I’ll get to sit down and devour it cover to cover.

Some I love more than others.

Southern Living has been at the top of my list for years.

My mom has always had a subscription.

The pecan pie recipe that we both use {and get rave reviews with} to this day was from as issue from the 70’s. {She kept the copy of that magazine for years. It was lined up with the books at the bottom of the bookcase…I’m going to have to check next time I’m home to see if she still has it?!}

When my Southern Living arrived just a couple weeks back; my jaw dropped when I saw the cover.

And my wheels started spinning as how I could recreate that look on my own front porch.

Here is how to make this Southern Living Inspired Fall Wreath:

This wreath is a mix of live and artificial.

step 1

Start with a grapevine form.

step 2

I clipped stems from my Nandina bushes. I have had great luck with this staying fresh looking for weeks at Christmas…I’ll see what we get with a bit more heat of fall…

step 3

I used about 7 stems and just inserted the ends into the grapevine.


I used 7 artificial white pumpkins on stems.

I just wired those into place.


I bought 3 stems of berries and separated each stem into 3 sections.

I inserted the ends into the grapevine form around the white pumpkins.

The mix of natural and artificial makes you think that it might all be natural.
