A FALL WREATH


For the last two years, I have been decorating my front door with the same wreath
 I had bought at Kirklands a while back, so, this year, 
I decided it was time to put a new one on our door.

This is my first time making a Fall wreath, so I did look around for a while
until I found the flowers and ribbon I had in mind.
Finally found them at HL 50% off and a few small bunches at
Dollar Tree, so I didn't really have to spend much to put it together.

Actually, the total cost was under $10.00 since I used the 
old wreath I already had from last Spring.
Just removed all the decor from it, cleaned it and it looked like brand new.

This year, I wanted to use a different color, so I added some dark purple
on my front porch decor, which, by the way, I will share with you ladies soon.
Our entrance is undergoing a renovation and it should be finished
 here is the next few days.
Can't wait to share that project with you all!!!







 Once I had everything, it was very easy to make.
I wrapped the burlap ribbon around it and just hot glued away! LOL
The whole thing took me less than an hour.




I also found this cute Fall wreath holder for $2.99.





So here is my Fall wreath for this year.
What do you guys think?
Are you making or buying one?
I can't wait to show you the rest of my front porch decor 
and our finished project.
Thank you for visiting and see you soon!

  4. Maria, thanks for coming by for a visit! Your wreath is beautiful! I need to decorate my front doors and porch. I usually make a big to do about it because we have a really great front porch, but I noticed that the wreaths were scratching the glass on my 150 year old doors...from swirling and moving with the wind. I have tried those enormous suction cups but they just fall off....help? I miss my wreaths. Like you, I saved them for a few years and then replaced them with something new. I love your project. They are so pretty.

  10. Your wreath is gorgeous! I wish I could arrange flowers so skillfully. I wanted to fill a box with silk flowers on top of my hutch this fall but went into sticker shock when I priced them. Kudos to you for finding these beauties on sale. I can't wait to see your front porch. (You know how I love your front porch!)
