So, I made a wreath. For the first time ever. And, I'm pretty sure that because it's my first time I think it looks pretty good. For making it out of dollar store stuff, anyway. Well, I think so, but what do I know!? I'll "leaf" you guys decide :)
Here's what I bought at the DS...I was so not into the whole cheap little scarecrow, or the paper sign....BUT, it was a wreath and it was $2! And I had a vision!!! (also, Michael's is kinna far and I rarely get to go, so, yeah...make it work ppl!!)
Rip the uglies right off:
Make a cuter "Welcome" Sign with some scrap fabric and fabric paint...(I wanted to use burlap, but yeah, fabric store was a no go)
Take some leaves (fakes!), branches (real), berries and apples (fakes!) and voila!
I used a branch to hold the "banner"...and roughed up the edges a bit...
Okay, so I kinna love it. It's so fall-ish. It really brings to mind all my favourite things about this season...the colours of the leaves, the branches as the leaves fall...apple picking....all good stuff. If only I could make it smell like cinnamon. Then it's be PERFECT!
So now, all I have to do is hang it outside, and finish the door decor. Than I'll be able to show you guys a finished product, but for now I am SLOWLY getting into this fall decorating thing.
First time, ever, remember? Everything....from scratch. Fun!
Thanks for reading! Have a great Friday! (wooo-hooo! Weekend!!!)
