So I finally got around to decorating my house for fall…and first up was a new wreath. My old wreath had been on our door for a year (yikes!) so it was definitely time to switch things up a bit.
And here it is! I love how it turned out. And the best part is that it was really simple to make.
First you’ll need to gather your supplies: a wreath (already had), wooden initial from Hobby Lobby, green moss, and burlap. I added a little pumpkin to mine that I found at Hobby Lobby for $1.50. Total spent on this project: $5.
First, paint your initial. I just used some old white paint I had left over from this project. Then, start to glue your moss on to the wreath. Glue big sections at a time…it doesn’t have to be perfect, you can always fill in any holes later. Here is where things got a little messy. Moss can “shed” a lot. I recommend doing this outside if possible. I obviously didn’t listen to my own advice.
Once your moss is set, secure your initial to the top of the wreath with a strip of burlap. My burlap wasn’t long enough to tie into a cute bow, so I just faked it by gluing a bow to the top. Then secure your pumpkin with glue….or don’t…it’s cute without it too!
I decided to cover my wreath hanger with burlap too. LOVE it!
My fall front door complete with a white pumpkin (thanks mom!) Looks like I am a little obsessed with the letter “R”!
I also had to spruce up our dining room table with a little fall love too! I used the table runner I made in this post.
This is my favorite time of year! Have you decorated for fall?
