Caravan Sonnet: Early Fall Adirondack Wreath

Early Fall Adirondack Wreath

Can y'all believe that we (in the United States) are fast approaching the end of summer? I honestly can not. And yet the weather here in the Adirondack mountains in upstate New York has already started to "turn" to cooler days and much cooler evenings. There is a certain "feel" that comes with fall and that "feeling" has begun to emerge. On the other hand though some days are so warm that I feel that summer is trying to hold on for "a few more days". I have been seeing the most adorable fall wreathes around Pinterest and I was anxious to start "bringing in fall" while still celebrating these last summer evenings. So to capture this I used some of my favorite products from The Twinery to create an "early fall" Adirondack wreath. 
To create the decorations on the wreath I first gathered several strands of the Copper Shimmer Twine together and wrapped it loosely around the wreath. I love this twine! It is actually my favorite shimmer twine!! What is so wonderful about this twine is that the Copper tones are so rich and really give any project that you use with it an immediate "elegant" look. Even using the twine here, loosely wrapped around this wreath, gives the wreath a completely different look then not having it. 
For the flowers, I wanted to create a "layered" look of "early fall" colors for the wreath decorations. I chose to use several different colors that can be changed out or replaced with other twine products as October comes upon us. I am actually planning on leaving the Copper Shimmer Twine on for each of the upcoming holiday seasons while changing out the flower colors! (Can you tell I love that Copper Shimmer Twine?!? *smiles*) For this time period though I choose to use the beautiful Marigold Twinethe vibrant Mandarin Twinethe sweet Marigold Stripe Twine, and the Maraschino Stripe Twine. I love the final look and hope y'all do too!
I am so blessed to be sharing about this project over on the Twinery's blog- I hope y'all will check it out! I hope that y'all have a wonderful Monday and enjoy these last few days of summer as we transition to fall! 

Blessings y'all,
