I FINALLY pulled out the fall decorations. Yesterday was the first day of fall, after all.
My old fall wreath was in desperate need of a re-do.
See those the faded colors? That is not bad picture taking, that is just how it looked. I made this wreath probably 10 years ago. It has held up well, but it was time for something new!
I started by ripping all the old flowers and decorations off the wreath form.
I then made a bow out of some sparkly pumpkin ribbon I had. I hot glued it right to the wreath.
Then, I just started playing around with some floral elements I had. I bought some new pumpkins and gourds from Dollar Tree, but everything else I had on hand in my craft supplies. Once I had everything laid out how I wanted, I hot glued it all down.
A question for you all: If you have small children who are into EVERYTHING, where do you put most of your holiday decorations? I don’t have a mantel, and my littlest one now thinks it is super fun to climb on the kitchen table. I am struggling with where to put stuff so it won’t get into prying little toddler hands.Linked up here: One Artsy Mama: Falling for Crafts Challenge, Homemaker on a Dime: Creative Bloggers Party Hop, The Girl Creative: Just Something I Whipped Up, Tip Junkie: Tip Me Tuesday, A Bowl Full of Lemons, Sugar Bee Crafts: Take a Look Tuesday, Not JUST a Housewife: Show Me What Ya Got, Clean & Scentsible: The Creative Spark, Delightful Order: Delightfully Inspiring Thursday, Tatertots and Jello: Weekend Wrap Up Party, The Shabby Nest: Frugal Friday
