Autumn Wreath using found materials

I gathered some fallen oak sprigs and used clippings from our bushes (I have been trimming them – they are way overgrown!) to make some fall decorations for outside.

One of my main objectives was to use only materials that I found outside or had on hand. I used:

  • Yard clippings
  • Found oak sprigs
  • Spare green yarn

I made this wreath by tying clippings (ranging from 1-2′ long) in a diamond shape with the yarn (I found a small ball of it in the garage). Then I tied on the oak sprigs. I attached it to my fence with the found yarn.

Not bad for yard debris!
