It’s starting to feel like fall here in Michigan! I really love fall. I love how it’s not so hot in our un-air-conditioned house. I love that I don’t have to get up at seriously crazy hours to work races ’cause they are all able to start later in the morning since they don’t have to “beat the heat”. I love the pretty leaves changing & the smell outside. I love cider & donuts & pie & apples. Oh, it’s lovely. There are only two things I don’t like about it… the fact that winter comes next & that the days start to get shorter. No more having light outside ’till 9 pm. booo.
Anyway, now that it’s autumn, my summer wreath that’s been hanging on my door since March was no longer cutting it. I had to change it up! Do you remember my wreath from last year? Probably not since I only had like 2 readers. Um, my wreath this year is much much better I must say. Oh,& my photography has improved big time. It’s still not very good compared to lots of other bloggers, but it’s still 800x better than it was a year ago.
All it took was a foam wreath, some fall-colored felt, yarn & a stem of leafy berry branches that I got at Joann’s.
I wrapped my wreath just like I did my winter snowflake wreath last year. Then I made a bunch of flowers like I did for my bathroom hooks. I used hot glue to secure the branches to the wreath first, then started randomly adding my flowers so that they ran along the bottom of the wreath & covered the end of the branches.
It’s hanging on our front door, so it’s behind our screen door, protected a bit from the elements, but still visible from the street.
I love it so much, I think it’s very pretty & autumn-y. Have you made a wreath for fall? Tell me about yours in the comments! I want to see it
