Fall officially starts in a just a few days so it’s time to make it look like it around here.
My redone wreath. Well, actually grapevine basket.I loved my front porch this summer, but now it’s a time for change.
Something for the door is always a great beginning, whether it’s a traditional round wreath, or wood monogram (which has become so popular).
I had purchased this a few years ago at a yard sale for $5 and used it in the past but it’s starting to look a bit worn plus I didn’t want the traditional orange for my primary color.This basket had a great base to start a new one with.
After a trip to Dollar Tree, Michaels, and Hobby Lobby, I had everything I needed.
After stripping off the old stuff off, I did a quick arrangement to get the look I wanted. Most of the time I find it easier to put it together without a plan, and it usually works. Then after hanging, you can give it a few tweaks.
A helpful hint here – snap a picture with your phone or camera so you won’t forget how to put it back together.
Everything was either on picks or I hot glued it in. Since I have a covered front porch, I don’t have to worry about direct sunlight getting the glue soft. I have had a few things to fall apart before.
Have you seen these half pumpkins? They are great for projects like this. Why didn’t I think of this before?I’m loving the more neutral, gold and bronze look of my front door. Plus, it shows up so well against my Sophisticated front door.With Dollar Tree and sale items, I only spent about $20 on this. The half pumpkin was this at original price, but loved the 60% off they had last week.Now, onto the rest of the porch.
