Going Around in Circles
Mason jar rings can be covered in washi tape or spray paint for a bright autumn style. Just take a collection of rings and rotate with a variety of washi tapes or spray paint to make a fun, eclectic wreath. String through a piece of ribbon and hang on your door.
For an alternative wreath idea, use scrapbook paper that has fall colors and design to cover the wooden or plastic block letters that you can find in a craft store. Add a thick layer of Mod Podge to the front of the letters and place the scrapbook paper on top. Tie decorative ribbon around each letter and hang on your front door. Your block letter decor is complete!

What better way to welcome the autumn season than with an old rake as fall decor! Use the head of the rake and tuck fall leaves, flowers, and vines into the hollow base, then secure the leaves with sturdy jute rope.
To make a popcorn wreath, you will need a wreath form, burlap, Mod Podge, glue, foam brushes, scissors . . . and of course kernels of corn. Wrap the wreath form in burlap and paint Mod Podge over the fabric. Or, you can also use one part Elmer's Glue and one part water. Sprinkle on a layer of kernels, then when it's dry add another layer of Mod Podge. Continue doing this until the wreath is covered in kernels. Add in fall leaves and berries once your wreath is dry.
This ribbon wreath is fun to make with a little help from your kids. Just take a styrofoam wreath and wrap black ribbon around it, then wrap a mix of ribbons around the wreath, tying a square knot with each one.
