It is finally starting to feel like fall around here and I think just in time since the first day of fall was this past Saturday. Have I ever told you how much I love fall?
And to celebrate this most special day of all (for me anyway) I chose to make a simple fall wreath. So today I'm sharing how you can make a simple dollar store fall wreath.
Aside from painting furniture all the time... yes I know it seems that's all I've been doing lately, I also like to surf the internet and be inspired by some very talented blogger friends.
I was recently in Tanya's blog Twelve O Eight and came across a really pretty farmhouse wreath made from Kraft paper. I was so impressed with it that I decided to do my own version. So today I am showing you how to make a colorful wreath with packing paper.
So the other day my son looked at our front door and said "Christmas is over" I laughed nervously at him and said "Yes, but this is a winter wreath you see here" I had removed the "Merry Christmas" part and so it looked plenty wintry to me. He just gave me a skeptical look. Truth be told, it is still winter outside, I even had to shovel snow yesterday. But he got me thinking that what I needed was a change in attitude.
So for this month's Ten on the Tenth I've decided to make a new Spring wreath for the front door. The theme is, things that we love to decorate with all the time.
And for those of you wondering what Ten on the Tenth is well, it is a group of us blogging friends who get together on this day to share a project with you, one that costs us less then ten dollars. Last month we talked about Spring projects and the month before we shared Valentine's Day ideas.
It is the most wonderful time of the year, with all of us getting ready for the holidays. I've already got my Christmas tree up and have even made a few decorations. But we cannot neglect the front door, now can we? And so today I am here to show you how to make a rustic Christmas wreath.
I am also joining some very special friends for a Christmas blog hop, so be sure to check them out at the end of this post.
Disclosure: I was compensated for doing this post with product. However, all the opinions stated here are my own. I only use products I love and would recommend to my viewers.
Fall is in the air and there is no better way to usher it in than by placing a wreath on our door or wall. Or at least that's what I was thinking when I made my way down to the local dollar store. I was going to find the perfect fall accessory to make Autumn shine in my home.
Today I am back again with my dollar store crafting buddies. You may remember we did this a while back and I made an easy colorful fence with dollar store flowers.
At the end of this project you'll be able to see what my friends did with their dollar store finds.
