Using Fall Wreaths


Of course, we couldn’t leave out one of the most iconic decor pieces for fall: the wreath! Here’s a 20-minute Modern Leather Hoop Fall Wreath we found on Making Manzanita as featured on Tatertots and Jello. Then, there are the ready-made options like this Pumpkin Wreath decorated with deco mesh and ribbon, available via Amazon.
