Well... we have been busy at the Collier Home.  Sophie is adapting to America just great.  The weather is cooling off from the HOT SUMMER we experienced in Oklahoma.  The Oklahoma State Fair has begun!  So, it is time to pull out the Fall Decor.

I have been working on a front door wreath.  I know many of you in Blog land are using yarn and felt flowers for your wreaths. I think those wreaths are fantastic.  I love them!!  However, since I had two fall colored mesh that I purchased on sale at the Paul Michael Company in Canton, Texas last November, I thought I should use it to create a front door wreath.  

Here are the colors of the mesh and the ribbons I chose to use on the wreath.

I had an old grapevine wreath hanging in the attic.  Yea, I did not spend any money for the grapevine wreath.

Now I was QUITE  INSPIRED by Kristen's Creations: Tutorial on Ribbon/Mesh Wreath...Easy! from October 2009.  Thank you Kristen!!  

I started with the grapevine wreath and tied one yard of mesh every other color on to the wreath.  Here is a picture with the two mesh colors tied to the wreath.

Here is a closeup photo of the ribbons I used on the wreath.

Another closeup of the ribbons.

I tied the ribbons on the wreath.  I only used ribbons and mesh on the wreath.  I will wait until after the mums and pumpkins are added to the front entrance before I think about adding anything more to the wreath. 

Here is a final look at the wreath.

When the front porch is completed with its fall look with mums and pumpkins, I will share the photos with you.
