Autumn Wreath

Oh, I love fall so much. It's basically my favorite of all the seasons. The thought of hot chocolate, cozy sweaters, colorful leaves, pumpkins everywhere, and the wonderful weather just makes me smile. I can sit out on our balcony reading a book or magazine and not be too hot or cold. I also love autumn crafts. It's so much fun getting to decorate for Halloween and Thanksgiving, even if you see Christmas decorations at the store the entire time, which can be a pain. I recently made a cute, little wreath for our apartment door that I can use for the next month or two. :)

I used a really cheap wreath from the Target dollar section (love that place), a tiny piece of pre-cut fabric, two types of ribbon, and a cheap bouquet of flowers. Since I already had the hot glue gun obviously, this was around a $10 craft. Not too shabby :)

I glued one end of the cream ribbon to the wreath, then wrapped it around. I did the same thing to the orange afterward. Glued the flowers on and cut the bunting triangles (gluing them to a thin ribbon that I attached to the wreath. Put it on the hanger, and it's ready to go. It was such an easy craft! Turned out pretty nice, if I do say so myself.

I'll be putting other autumn stuff on here throughout the month too!

Love your face and such,
