Autumn Ceiling Medallion Wreath





Hello sweet friends, old (that have been here more often, rather) and new!
Please forgive my absence as of late, I have been busy getting our new
daughter, Lovely, our exchange student from South Korea,
acclimated to our home, her school, this America.
To read more about her, go HERE.

I pray you are having a wonderful day!
Let's remember that our first duty is to our own family, in her own household. 
Managing our own homes should be our primary employment, 
our first task, our most important job, and our true career!
We are blessed, so very blessed.

The changes of season is coming upon us and it's time for a new wreath, right?
A Fall wreath.

I wanted something different.
Not-the-same.
A tad unexpected.

And couldn't think of what that would be.
Until I remembered the "box".

During the summer, my blog friend, Kristi, of The Speckled Dog,
met me for a visit at Starbucks here in town.
She knitted, I talked.

When our visit was over, she gave me a box of cool stuff she wasn't needing.
In it were two ceiling medallions.

Instead of hanging this one on the ceiling, I decided to make a wreath with it.


At Michael's, I found a round craft ring/wreath form.




And some picks wif wots and wots of fedders.





Miss S painted the medallion a loverly shade of bronze-gold.





I hotglued my fingers a long strip of burlap to make a hanger.





Attached that puppy to the medallion.





And hung it up!!









Yeah, it's different.
Maybe a bit weird.
Not something I'd normally make, but I'm wild and crazy like that sometimes.






My favourite feathers are the blue-green ones.
God sure makes some beautiful things.





I had fun with my daughter creating something unique.
Like her.






I posted last Fall about my Vintage Silver Tray and Berry Garland Wreath
when my front door was red.
(Now it's Wythe Blue, Benjamin Moore hc-143).



Have you made a wreath yet and started to think "Autumn"?
What can YOU make a wreath out of?

  2. I like it! It is very Fallish I think. Last year while I was raking up all the leaves on our huge Magnolia tree I decided to make a wreath...I glue gunned all the pretty leaves of so many colors onto a form...it was time consuming but it turned out really pretty!

  8. Oh I like it! It is different, but really pretty and goes with your colors. Who wants the same thing everyone else has? You're unique and your wreath reflects that. I'm glad to "hear your voice." You have been so quiet. Lisa~

  15. This is so different but so elegant! I love feathers in the fall... and they contrast beautifully against the gold.

  16. Very cool...I like the weirdness :). I've missed you on here, but admire you for putting first things first! We've had a cold front that makes me want to break out the autumn....but I'm holding off for a few more weeks (at least I'm going to try).

    I love tin panels (even the plastic ones) and we're thinking about incorporating them into our kitchen.

    That medallion rocks.
