Purple and Brown Fall Wreath

With the changing seasons I thought it was time to finally put away my patriotic decor and put up a Fall wreath. A purple, brown, and cream colored wreath.
This wreath is just what I was going for, it only took me three days a million hot glue gun burns and many many different flower combos to get it. Don’t believe me? Well I was originally going with this, plus a cream colored felt..ehh.
Needless to say it just didn’t work so I left it alone and kept going back to it over and over again trying to find something I liked.
I went into my fabric stash and found this purple fabric and muslin..it was perfect!
 I like all the different textures this wreath has
So what do you think? I don’t see brown and purple together often but I really like the way it turned out.
Have you made a fall wreath yet ? I’d love to see it!
Thanks for stopping by, I hope you’re having a fabulous day!
Please check out my party page to see where I’m linking up at.
