I finally got around to making our Fall Wreath for the front door. Finally.
I got the idea from Jess at Frugal Flourish quite awhile back. I loved the look of the shimmery fall wreath she made, and you really can make it out of "stuff" you have lying around!
I have so many of these in the closet:
So I grabbed the colors that looked the most "fall-ish" to me :>)
Golds, browns, shimmery coppers...
Then I gathered all the old leaf garlands and floral fillers that I have. I took scissors and cut the leaves off of the garland, and I took out all the berries from my fillers:
Now the fun begins! Spray paintin' it up! The only spot I have to spray paint is on my front porch. My neighbors are constantly walking by with their dogs and looking at me like I'm a crazy person. Oh well! The price we pay for home decor!
I divided up the foliage and sprayed each group a different shade, and I made sure to flip the leaves over to get both sides. Some leaves I completely covered with color, others I just lightly misted to keep the original oranges and reds coming through.
After all the leaves and berries were dry, I began to tuck them one by one into the grapevine wreath I bought for this project (oh, 2 months ago. I know I know. Procrastination may be my middle name). Grapevine wreaths are 3 bucks at Michaels and they are super easy to decorate - no matter the season.
Note: Cali's Frisbee in the corner :>) How does this one little pooch take over every room (and porch) in our house with her stuff?!?
Here is the (almost) finished product!
I added one last touch, like Jess did!
After spray painting the "L" a dark brown, I hung it in the center of the wreath with some twine:
I just love Fall. It's my favorite season - Thanksgiving is my favorite Holiday.
We have so much to be thankful for :>)
