More fall y'all.
I made a magnolia wreath. Easy yes, quick not so much. You can find lots of tutorials on Pinterest. I chose to copycat Michelle's over at Sweet Something Designs. You can find all the step-by-step instructions along with a list of supplies right HERE.
So I mixed a couple of colors to come up with a chartreuse shade and while the paint's still wet, on goes a sprinkle of glitter. Be sure to have a professional paint box like mine before you start. Nothing but the best old box will do. I used a block of styrofoam and some wooden skewers to hold the pods up and make them easy to work with. Bam - just like that, they brighten up the wreath.
HERE for only 85 cents a yard. Even less if you buy more than 69 yards, Can you say big project?
To attach it to the wreath I simply wrapped the jute around and hot glued it just above the grape vine wreath. Then I eye-balled where I wanted it to hang and since my door is wood, I just tapped a tack through it at the top of the door. Easy!
Still, it is Halloween and this beautiful wreath is just a little understated for such a fun holiday.
- Print a cute vintage Halloween card on card stock
- Cut a square piece of burlap the same side of your card. Fold the burlap in half length-wise and cut at a diagonal on the bottom half.
- I used Martha stewart's Loop Script Stencil Set & a sponge spouncer to stamp the letters.
- Glue a length of ribbon across the top and tie scraps of colorful ribbon between each letter & picture.
- I tied the ends of the ribbon to 2 skewers and used a drop of glue to hold it. Then just stick the skewers into wreath. That way you can easily change the banner out in a few days for a Thanksgiving one.
I just realized all my porch decorations were created by me except the witch. Oh' how I wish I could paint. Stay tuned and I'll show you how to make my little trick-or-treater. She's been with us for years now.
* Tip - as the green leaves start fading just stick a few more in here and there. Next year I would like to try making one using foam oasis to keep it fresh. Maybe I'll try an all green one.
