Sunday marked the first day of fall and you know what that means… time to decorate with pumpkins and wreaths and leaves and flowers and pine cones while the scents of cinnamon and spice and vanilla and pecan pie fill the house with autumn.
Wreaths make for the perfect entry piece to the home and can be changed up all year long to coordinate with the seasons. They seem pretty trendy right now–festive fall wreaths with sweet flowers and such. So we thought we’d try our hands at this DIY project too! Walking through the aisles of our local Hobby Lobby, we immediately fell in love with the burlap flowers. We picked up a few flowers, some sage green organza ribbon and a twig wreath.
First, we wrapped the wreath in ribbon, pulling it through the branches to keep it from slipping. We then clipped the long stems from the flowers, slipped the short stems through the branches and used a glue gun to attach them. Being the crafty one here on R&R, Jessica created the most perfect bow on top with a loop in the back to hang on the hook.
The entire project cost us less than $20… and the best part? I got to hold sweet Baby Elijah while we were crafting! Nothing better than doing DIY projects with your dear friend while holding her newborn. The perfect start to fall!
