It seems like fall decor is everywhere lately, and I have definitely gotten the fall bug to start fluffing things up around here for the upcoming months. That's to say, I've been thinking about it...but it is just a little too early for me to start really fall decorating. Realistically, Labor Day weekend I will start the "fallify."
In the meantime, I did decide to make a new fall wreath for our front door. Once I take out all of the annuals (which are looking quite
I've looked at a few pre-made wreaths and really, the cheaply made ones are over the top expensive - even with a coupon! Let's not even talk about a high quality wreath. I was feeling much thriftier and decided to make my own.
I started with a grapevine wreath I already had laying around, a length of burlap ribbon that was half off ($3.50), and a half off fall garland ($12.50). So for an investment of $16.00, I was all in for crafting my own.
I simply wrapped the burlap ribbon loosely and imperfectly around the wreath - I wanted some of the grapevine to show through. I secured the ends with a drop of hot glue. Easy so far (and I have at least half of the burlap ribbon left for something else)!
Then - even easier - I simply curled the garland around the wreath (about two times), securing with floral pins and the occasional glue dab. I added an oversize burlap bow made from the same ribbon and presto change-o - my fall wreath was done! Easy stuff. I like the bow a little off kilter to the side.
If I had to purchase the variety of faux florals that are in this wreath, it would have cost far more to make it. Now when I've tired of it and want a change, I still have a great fall garland to use with something else, and of course, the grapevine wreath.
A close up of the different floral varieties - so pretty. Loving all the texture.
That's it for me today. Looking forward to fall, but hanging on a little longer to the beautiful summer!
