Simple Fall Wreath

I’m back with another easy, cute fall DIY! I think its inviting to walk up to a door and see a wreath hanging outside. To me, it shows that person loves to make guest wow at their home and feel very welcome. It’s screams creativity and shows off what that person really likes like favorite colors, seasons, teams, or seasons etc. So today I created my own simple fall wreath. It’s quick and easy and fun to make.

here is what you will need:

  • foam craft circle
  • burlap ribbon (2)
  • E6000 glue (thats what I used but I really recommend a glue gun)
  • fall leaves (any other decorative items you can find)
  • flowers
  • and patience 🙂

I started out like the above picture. Note- I did not use the acorns or grapes, I did think they would have been really cute but I opted out. First, you will wrap the ribbon around the foam craft really tight. I did wrap a bit too tight, in the picture below you can see that a small opening was left. No worries, I just used that side for placing the decorations. I did list 2 burlap ribbons in the “what you will need” section just in case you wrap too tight. Once wrapped, your wreath should look like this (minus the open space of course):

Now you can get out your glue and start placing your decorations and flowers. I just randomly placed and glued the leaves and flowers until it was satisfactory for me. Below is the finished product.

Blooming pumpkin

 

 

Hello! Welcome to my world. Today i created a centerpiece to put on my thanksgiving tablescape. Everything came from the Dollar Tree. I call it the blooming pumpkin. I was browsing the store trying to see what I could find to creating something beautiful to put on the table, and I remembered I saw someone make a blooming pumpkin. So I decided to make my version of it.

I just love to decorate my table for different holidays or any special event that is going on. Thanksgiving is coming up and I love this day because Family’s get together to share and have dinner and give thanks to each other. I love the smell of chicken and dressing, mac and cheese, and pecan pie cooking in the kitchen. I love seeing all of my family come together, there is always dancing and laughter and a lot of fellowship. Well without further a do, here is how I made the blooming pumpkin:

I bought a few bouquet’s of fall flowers, E6000 glue, carvable pumpkin, small silver plate, 3 glass vases, and a flower base.

First I glued the vase’s together so they can dry while I’m carving the pumking and placing the flowers on the base. it looked like this once I was done…..

I put some flowers in the vases to make it look prettier (I bought too many flowers so I had to put them somewhere) Then I created the blooming pumkin and it looked like this once done….

Once the vase’s dried I glued the pumpkin to the top and let it dry then I attached it to the silver plate as a base and wala!

all done, I then placed it on the table for my own personally created tablescape. I hope it helps someone. Leave a comment if you will create a similar thing so I can go check it out. Be creative and stay inspired!

Thanks!
