I had these two very rustic looking grapevine wreaths purchased from Michaels that have seen better days and I wanted to spruce them up for this fall project. My house is rather large and every time I want to decorate it's always in a set of two, otherwise things just seem to get visually lost.
I had seen this beautiful colored Raffia assortment and wanted to incorporate at it in my rustic wreath. These are sold at the Micheals Craft Store, where they keep the wreath making supplies and dried flowers.
One package of this colored Raffia (there are six different colors in one package) and scissors for cutting it up was plenty to make two wreaths.
Before I knew it the table was piled up with a wonderful explosion of color. I separated each strand of Raffia and kept folding it in half until the desired length was achieved that was suitable to tie around the branches.
I alternated colors and even left some strands longer or shorter, depending on how it was complementing the overall look.
My two lion heads then received their fall accessories which made my outdoor space look season-appropriate. This was a fairly quick way to add some fall color to an outdoor space costing about $15.
