Happy Fall...


Happy Fall.



I worked out in the yard with the hubby today. Despite wearing a sweatshirt and...uh...glistening from my elbow grease expenditure, I was chilled.

Fall is here.


Have YOU decorated for the season yet?


Take one boring, inexpensive grapevine wreath:




And add (stick em in, glue gun em in, wire em in) a bunch of fall-ish berries, sticks, floral picks, whathaveyou. Then HANG it UP.


Me? I had a TON of red berry sprays that I yanked out of a 75 cent garage sale wreath. And yes, I DID spray paint half of them orange. Cause the season demands some ORANGE. Also threw some leftover sticks in there because this girl loves her some curly willow:



Fall is here. Let the apple cider consumption, harvest candle flickering, cozy blanket snuggling and fireplace crackling commence...

  13. I wish I could just stick berries and twigs and stuff in a grapevine wreath and make it look like yours :o) Great job!

  14. Beautiful wreath! I love that the berries are "recycled". I never thought of deconstructing one wreath to make another, but now I know how!

  23. Hi! Your comment on my blog made me laugh - sad but true, Wal-Mart gutted the fabric section. All you can get now are the stupid "fat quarters!" My closest JoAnn's is a solid 30 minutes away. It stinks.

    Your wreath is great - nice job!

  24. The thing I love about your DIY posts is that you are able to have it all make sense to people like me. I just realized that I could do that. Thank you for showing me the way, A.

    You should just move back to Seattle so that I can pick your crafty brain. Why didn't you reveal your crafty side to me when we were together? Now you're a million miles away ;)

  26. Thanks for participating in Fall Family Friday at Thrifty NW Mom! What a great idea - I love it! I never think about tearing apart things I find at garage sales either and reusing it for other things.
