Autumn Woodland Wrapping

Autumn has arrived up north!  
We had a pump of hot air pushing us into the low 90's for several days and then we turned the corner and it dropped into the 60's!
Isn't he the cutest!

Yesterday morning I got my buns in gear and put together this idea for a wreath that I envisioned back in August.  I've had the supplies waiting but I just had to find the time to do it.

Early in August on a visit to JoAnn's I found this cute little fox that I couldn't resist!  He's meant to be hung by himself but my idea was to add him to a wreath.  I ran a flexible wire through the back of the foam frame both to the top and bottom and tied him in place.

I cut apart the floral sprays and inserted the stems one by one, then added little gourds, pumpkins, acorns and pine cones.  I intended to hang it between the storm door and the outside of this door but it's too thick to go between the doors.  Then I decided I'd rather enjoy it from inside the house so that's where it is now.

Then I "falled up" the entryway chest.
Last January I was checking out the clearance section of MacKenzie Childs and found these pumpkins for half off!  I wrapped them with a garland of leaves flowers and pine cones on a tray.

I think everyone that likes those imagines themselves painting their own version but I for a fact lack that kind of talent so I'm thrilled to have gotten these on sale!

See the little accent colors they add to them?  That would be another difficult step to copy.

Morning's sunlight- love how it enhances things.

I found this at Cracker Barrel.  I was intrigued with the cutwork on it.  I quickly set it on the floor by the chair after I got it- and there it has stayed.  They have another one that is smaller but I haven't decided if I "need" it!

This is how I love to see fall displayed- wrapping my environment with woodland accents.

Now it's time to get busy with more fall decorating!


  1. Oh Liz he is just adorable. I think he needs to be on my front door!!!! Happy Thursday.

  2. Seriously...one of THE BEST wreaths of the season!!! I am just floored at how great that bad boy looks!!! It's just so professional!!! It's obvious you've given it some thought over time. It shows!

    I love the black & white with the fall colors! It really looks sophisticated, doesn't it? Understated. Beautiful! The photo with the morning light on the chest really showcases it.

  3. I really like your fall decor, especially the wreath. I think my grand would get a kick out of the fox. Happy fall.

  4. I love your fall d├ęcor, Liz, and the fox is just adorable as can be! He looks perfect in the center of the wreath, as if standing at attention, guarding it all. I bet you really enjoyed putting this lovely wreath together.

  5. You Fall decor is beautiful Liz! You wreath is beautiful and so cute with the fox on it. We're still looking forward to 60 degree weather - hopefully it will come soon so we can break out the sweaters, scarves and boots!

  6. Love your fall fox wreath!! You embellished it perfectly! Your home looks lovely for fall.
    Bravo!! Rosie @ The Magic Hutch

  7. I love that fox! He's adorable. Your gathering of fun pumpkins, garlands, and leaves makes a perfect display of fall in your home. Your projects are so inspiring! Happy weekend! :-)

  8. WOW, love the wreath. It is so cute and so are the checked pumpkins. Last week in the 90s, now in the 70s. So Happy.

  9. Nice job, Liz, your fall foxy wreath is just too cute.

  10. Liz, there are so many pretty things. First, that fox wreath is adorable. Second, what a find on those MacKenzie Childs pumpkins. They look perfect in your autumn display. I am swooning over that beautiful bombay chest in your entry. Happy fall!!!

  11. I love, LOVE that fox and you made the wreath BEAUTIFUL!!! I truly love the whole thing! The pimpkin from CB is beautiful too!

  12. That fox is one cute fox. Love the wrappings. The florals look great, especially with the MK pumpkins. Love the bargain price from MK. A beautiful wreath for fall to enjoy for years. The large pumpkin-gourd looks fabulous on the floor. I agree, another one would look great.
