Well....we have been one of the lucky ones to have our home featured on the Reynold's Home Tour out here at Reynold's Plantation, October 22.
SOOOOO......the fall decorating begins!
and, let me mention that Fall is my VERY favorite time of the year!
These poor wreaths had lost their luster....
but wait! I knew I could save these poor little Target wreaths with just a tad bit of ingenuity AND save some dough in the process!,,,so, they went from Summer wreaths to Fall wreaths just like that! Shazam!
Here's what I did:
First I spray painted them brown (with the help of Cooper) (he was so excited)
but wait! while I was letting them dry, I decided to try my hand at stacking pumpkins
first I cut down the stem so it had a flat top (I made sure my foot got in the picture, and yes I'm wearing white sandals after Labor Day)
then I punched wooden skewers in like this (you may need a hammer)
I plunged the next pumpkin on top of the skewers
repeating the process
I was left with these unsightly skewers! so...
I covered them up with moss (don't tell anyone)
back to the wreaths. I found these darling little miniature pumpkins in different sizes and colors
and cut some greenery out of my yard (this will be easy to replace when it dies)
using smaller skewers I jabbed the skewer right in that sucker and stuck him on the wreath
and did two others. Then I had bought this beautiful rust ribbon from Gayle K to adorn my wreath
and there ya have it! The start of my fall decorating
Total cost? About 70.00 for everything (and 20.00 was the ribbon)
Have a great day y'all!
