No matter what the season, this nature-inspired wreath is perfect for welcoming guests year-round. You can create your own version using bark found in the garden center and solid ground rod found in the electrical department. Pinecones and twigs add a nice fall look, and they can be replaced with seasonal berries or sprigs in December for the holidays. Then try fresh-cut flowers during spring and summer.
