Adding a touch of fall to the kitchen

Yesterday I spent a little time creating a new wreath for my range hood. My hubby made me this hood when we remodeled our kitchen and it is a great way to add some extra touches of color and design on the kitchen.

It is so simple to create a wreath. First find a wreath form that is the right scale for the place in your home you want to hang it. Next, think of what room you want that wreath to hang in. What are the colors? Do you have other folage in the room you need to compliment. Then after you find the flowers, yarn, ribbon, fabric, you name it…to go on it, lay out your pattern. I always try to set things out using odd numbers of things. For example, I have seven apples to work with and three berry sprigs. You can decide if you want your design to be symmetrical or asymmetrical. Just play around and see what is pleasing to your eye.

When I am happy with my design, I start hot gluing. Really is that simple.

I love how a simple project like this can add a bit of fun and style to any room.

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!
