Finally Some Fall Decor....

October 17, 2011

So I finally got around to decorating my house for fall...and first up was a new wreath. My old wreath had been on our door for a year (yikes!) so it was definitely time to switch things up a bit.

And here it is! I love how it turned out. And the best part is that it was really simple to make.

Photobucket
First you'll need to gather your supplies: a wreath (already had), wooden initial from Hobby Lobby, green moss, and burlap. I added a little pumpkin to mine that I found at Hobby Lobby for $1.50. Total spent on this project: $5.

Photobucket
First, paint your initial. I just used some old white paint I had left over from this project. Then, start to glue your moss on to the wreath. Glue big sections at a time...it doesn't have to be perfect, you can always fill in any holes later. Here is where things got a little messy. Moss can "shed" a lot. I recommend doing this outside if possible. I obviously didn't listen to my own advice.

Photobucket
Once your moss is set, secure your initial to the top of the wreath with a strip of burlap. My burlap wasn't long enough to tie into a cute bow, so I just faked it by gluing a bow to the top. Then secure your pumpkin with glue....or don't...it's cute without it too!

Photobucket
I decided to cover my wreath hanger with burlap too. LOVE it!

Photobucket
My fall front door complete with a white pumpkin (thanks mom!) Looks like I am a little obsessed with the letter "R"!

Photobucket
I also had to spruce up our dining room table with a little fall love too! I used the table runner I made in this post.

This is my favorite time of year! Have you decorated for fall?

  22. OMG! I love all of this! :)

    Seeing all your monogrammed stuff really makes me want to make it. I think it's because we have the same last name letter. If you want to just start making 2 of everything and mailing one my way... that'd be great!

    hahahaha!

  23. and just so you know I'm serious, I was just on pinterest and thought "I better go back to her blog and print out the photo of supplies" so that's exactly what I did.
    I can't wait to make this.
    And I'm also obsessed with "R" since my soon-to-be last name starts with it as well
