Fall Wreath

Hello there!!  Thanks for stopping by!
One of my goals for this year has been to make a new wreath for every holiday.  I've done pretty good, but I haven't made a wreath since the 4th of July.  So yes, my 4th of July wreath is still hanging on my door!  I figured I'd better change it up, since it had been up for over 2 months!  Do you want to see my fall wreath?

 
I love how it turned out!

So, I got the idea for the flowers and colors from The Lung Family and The Bakers Daughter.  The Lung Family website has a great tutorial for both of the flowers, so go check it out.  I loved their wreaths, but I didn't want to cover mine with yarn.  I LOVE this grapevine wreath.  It was only $3.50 at Walmart, and I love how it adds to the fall/autumn look.  I didn't want to cover that up.  So I just made the flowers out of fall colors, and glued them right to the wreath.  I used some gorgeous orange 'fall-y' ribbon to hang it with.  The only thing I'm going to change is the placement of the bow.  I think I'm going to lower it so it sits right over the wreath, but that will have to happen another day!  So this wreath cost me a whopping $3.50, since I had everything else in my crafting stash.  Not bad, eh?!

What do you think?!  Have you decorated for fall yet?
Thanks for reading and for your sweet comments! We love every single one!!
