Today was the first cool,crisp morning where you could feel that Fall is just around the corner. Fall is one of my favorite seasons and is definitely my favorite season for decorating. Something about all the earthy red, oranges & browns, pumpkins, gourds, hay & scarecrows just does it for me. So after enjoying a cappuccino and snuggling with the boys for a bit I decided I would work on some Fall wreaths.
Wreaths for me are one of the easiest ways to decorate and fulfill my crafty ambitions. Before I show you my most recent creations I’ll share with you two other wreaths I have made in the last little while. The first is a boa wreath I made for a friend’s bachelorette and it was insipired by my favorite website- pinterest! This is the pin that I used as my inspiration & tutorial:
It was really easy to do too- just buy a wreath form and wrap the boas around it. I used 2 black boas and wrapped them around first then layered 1 pink boa over top. The next wreath I made was for last Easter and being the crazy bird-lover that I am I decided to make an egg themed Easter wreath that I will admit has hung up on our door until I replaced it with a Fall wreath today…..I’m on top of things like that..
All the supplies for that wreath I managed to find at the dollar store- if you shop early in the season they usually have great floral pieces for $1/bunch. The total cost of this wreath was under $10!! (You can buy the wreath forms at Wal-mart or Michaels for around $5). My new Fall wreath is really just an updated version of this Easter one- I bought the Fall floral arrangements from the Dollarama and went to work- here is my masterpiece!
And then I made one more Fall wreath- wanting to do something a little different this time. I bought from burlap at Michaels using my 40% off coupon (don’t you love those??) and found those cute little Fall-colored flowers for only $1.50 apiece at Michaels as well. I just love the burlap- it just screams rustic, country vibe to me.
Thanks for taking the time to check out my recent craftiness at work. Now you know what I’ve been doing in my spare time!
