DIY bittersweet wreath for fall

In autumn, make a wreath from bittersweet (otherwise known as nightshade). The berries are usually poisonous, but definitely gorgeous--so just hang high enough to be out of reach of small children.  Otherwise use plants and flowers in warm earth tones to enhance your fall color palette.
