Although the temperatures are still a little warm outside, I’ll take the 90’s over the 100’s any day! My favorite time of year is almost here and I’m slowly getting ready for fall. I love the dark, rich colors that fall brings (that’s probably why the hubs and I got married in October). So with fall right around the corner, I headed out to the garage to find all my fall decorations. I could have sworn I had more than 2 containers worth but that’s okay. Now, when I say I have 2 containers of fall décor, I mean I have 2 containers that aren’t even half full and 2 scarecrows. Seriously? That just means I’ll have to be creative this year!
So far starters, I laid out everything I had to get a preview of what I have to work with (which wasn’t much!). Here’s the list …
Cylinder glass containers (from our wedding)
Dollar store leaves/flowers
What the heck am I going to do with these?!? I put on my thinking cap and went to work!
I took my cylinder glass containers, raffia, and dollar store leaves and put them on the table. Then I raided the pantry and found some pinto beans (Don’t ask me why we have those in there – the hubs HATES beans!)
And I made this …
I believe every door should have a wreath and I will argue that until the day I die! I took my grapevine wreath and burlap and dollar store flowers and did some magic. I cut my burlap into 1 ½ inch strips like this …
After I hung the wreath on the front door, I walked out into the street to take a look at it and just shrugged in awe … I love fall!!
