A fall wreath

I love summer. I love the warm weather, the beautiful gardens, vacations, barbeques, picnics, the sound of kids playing outside. Having said that, I also love love fall. Fall…oh beautiful fall. I love everything about fall. The gardens are still beautiful, the changing leaves, the colors, the food, sweaters, pumpkins….everything. So every August I spend a little time getting things ready to decorate my home for the fall season. This morning I spent some time making a wreath that can hang on my front door to welcome in the season.

I started with a pre made wreath I found at Hobby Lobby. This was a very cost effective option because all the filler is already on the wreath. All you have to do is find some picks and fill it in to your heart’s content.

I just grabbed a few small picks from the fall section to add, I didn’t need a lot, and started hot gluing them onto the wreath. I had a little leftover green ribbon from another project, and added a bow to the center. I chose colors that looked like fall to me and that complimented the foliage that was already on the wreath. Then a few minutes later, I had a beautiful wreath.

This was a fun and easy project anyone can do to add a little fall color into their homes.

I'm Erin, a busy mom of three, chauffeur, cook, housekeeper, and wanna be decorator. I love old movies, good books, and a daily trip to Lowes. We have recently bought a new we are fixing up and changing everything. This blog is to record our renovating journey. This is not the first house we have done. Actually, it is our third. My husband and I love a project. Any project. We both love working on our home, have the same taste, (which is great), and love working and re purposing things on our budget. We can show you how to put together a high end and creative look without breaking the bank. Taking something old and recreating it into something new and exciting for any room is my passion. Hope you enjoy this decorating journey with us!
