Now that Halloween is over we can move on to what I consider the best time of year AUTUMN! Don’t get pulled in to the Christmas spirit just yet, first we need to decorate for the fall. What’s better than the smell, feel and color of fall? NOTHING! Crafting your own personal wreath is the best way to start bringing these senses into your home. Wreaths are the perfect accent piece for any door! Below are instructions for an easy DIY harvest wreath that will really get you in the autumn mood. The best part, I’ve included some great storage ideas using Sterilite products, which will keep your craft supplies and wreaths fresh for next year too.
•Burlap cut into strips
•Hot glue gun
•A colored monogram of your liking
Start by making your burlap strips into loops by hot gluing the ends together. Next, start layering your pieces on, starting from the outside and working in. Once you get to the middle, make a little background for the monogram to sit on. You can pick either burlap or leaves; just make sure you have a good surface area to glue on the monogram.
Once it’s time to swap the harvest wreath for the Christmas wreath, don’t throw it out! The Sterilite Wreath Box has all of the best features to make sure your wreath stays clean and dust free until next year. The wreath box will hold up to a 24” wreath and comes with a see-through lid to make identification easy. The comfort grip handle makes transporting your wreath between seasons easy to manage. Secure latches keep dust and pests out no matter where you store it in your home. The mounted hole in the base allows for a convenient wall hanging solution and the integrated hanging feature on the inside keeps your wreath securely hung throughout the year. It truly is the best option to preserve the shape of your craft.
More supplies are always better when it comes to crafting, but storing the extra can be a nuisance. The Sterilite 3 Layer Ornament Box will keep everything divided and fresh for future projects. The see-through base allows you to identify exactly what you need without rummaging through everything and you can even pull apart separate layers by using the sturdy latches. A handle at the top allows for easy transportation when you have to take your craft supplies on the road. The greatest feature, adjustable dividers are included so you can customize each layer of the Stack and Carry to accommodate your needs.
Have fun and get creative before the holidays really get going. When you start sharing your fall crafts on your favorite social media outlet, don’t forget to include #Sterilite. We want to see all of your great wreaths.
