Fall Wreath

I can’t believe that September has already come and gone!  It seems as if it literally FLEW by!  With the start of school already about a month in, it seems that things are finally starting to slow down a little {at least I sure hope so!}  Teaching and grad school have kept me busy and constantly on my toes.  I’ve had very little time for myself lately and am looking forward to some down time any day now.  ;)

While I haven’t had much time to complete projects around the house this month, I have had a few ideas on my brain.  This past weekend I did take a few steps in the right direction with high hopes of finding a few spare moments here and there throughout the next week to whip up a few quick and easy ones.  So stay tuned for what’s to come!

In the meantime, I knocked one fall project off of my to-do list: I finally took down the summer wreath and put up my favorite Fall inspired one!  Hooray!!  :)  In case you don’t remember, Fall is my absolute favorite season and I wish we actually had the true season here in Texas.  Recently, we’ve had a few teasers with some serious rain storms bringing in a couple of cool fronts… The past two weekends were a lovely 61 degrees in the early morning!!  Too bad that perfect weather didn’t stick around for long.  The hot, muggy (perfect for mosquito) weather has returned.  Boo.  :(

So my wreath is one that I made last October. It was a project that I took on as a stress reliever right before our wedding. Crafting relaxes my mind and makes me oh so happy!  Of course I found it on Pinterest… however, the photo seems to be untraceable as to who originally came up with it.  Here is what the inspiration wreath looks like:

I just love the natural moss with the burlap bow and the mini pumpkins.  It just screams FALL to me!  All of the supplies can be found at your local craft store.

Here are the supplies I used:

  • one hay wreath
  • green moss sheets
  • mini plastic pumpkin and berry decorations
  • burlap ribbon
  • hot glue

Here is what I did to make it:

  1. Cut sheet moss into three-four inch strips.  Hot glue around the hay wreath.
  2. Hot glue mini pumpkins and berries onto wreath.
  3. Tie a big bow with burlap ribbon and loop around top of wreath to hang.

Here are the pictures of my finished project:

Happy Fall ya’ll!  Hope to see you back later this week with another Fall inspired project!
