Back to normal blogging activity…

I’ve been itching to get some fall decorations up even though it’s still in the 100’s here in Yuma. I have been searching Pinterest for the perfect wreath for my front door and finally came up with a design, which is a mixture of a few that I’ve seen.

My Fall wreath Pin-spiration:

Top This Top That’s Easy Burlap Wreath – This is the tutorial my mother-in-law and I used last year for our Christmas wreaths.

724 South House’s Easy Burlap Wreath – I really liked her idea for the monogram. {Definitely check her blog out if you’re a new wife facing the daunting task of turning your husband’s college bachelor pad into a beautiful home. She’s doing a good job!}

Thanksgiving Wreath 2

I really like the idea of making one burlap wreath and just switching the embellishments when the seasons change. I might do a different color monogram {I’m thinking ivory or gold} for a winter wreath since those are my Christmas colors.

Above, you can find my cast of characters for this project. I included the door hanger because I almost forgot this thing! I would have been very disappointed to have spent all day making a wreath and then not have been able to hang it up! Also, you don’t have to use chalkboard paint, but I thought that would give me a really flat finish for the “W”, which is what I wanted. So, I just followed Top This Top That’s tutorial for the burlap wreath, then I secured the “W” with some thread. I’m sure there was an easier way to do this {please let me know of one!}, but I couldn’t think of anything right off the bat.

I’m also doing a table runner, thinking of doing a valance for my kitchen window, and on the hunt for organic pumpkins so I can get to canning for the holiday season!

What fall projects are in the works for you?
