DIY Fall Wreaths

Fall is almost officially here but you can't tell it where I live. The temps are still in the high 80's here. So it's been a challenge for me to get the ball rolling with my "Fall Projects". However, last Saturday I mustered up the motivation to go shopping for fall wreaths. My first stop was Hobby Lobby. Fall was in full bloom at HL and the selections were amazing. I had my heart set on some beautiful preassembled wreaths, but you know me I had a budget in mind. So instead of purchasing the gorgeous preassembled wreaths that I so desperately wanted, I opted to go the budget friendly route, and decided to create my own Fall Wreaths. I purchased garland that was oh so Fall, then I headed back home to get my project in gear.

 
This is the wreath I created. Keep reading/scrolling to see how it was done.

 This wreath has been used a lot over the years. See it here
Things needed for this project.  A wreath/wreaths............
 

garland, ribbon, floral wire and wire cutters.


This wreath was super simple. It took me a little over an hour to assemble both wreaths. The first thing I did was took the garland and formed it into the shape of my wreath. Once the garland was in place to my liking, I began securing the wreath with the floral wire.

Sorry you can barely see the wire.
This pic shows how I used the floral wire to hold the garland in place. ***SIDE NOTE*** The process of securing the garland would have gone a lot smoother an been easier, if I had added the floral wire around the entire wreath first, then added the garland. This way the floral wire would already have been in place, then all I would have had to do was secure the garland by wrapping the floral wire around it. Instead I did the opposite, which made it harder for me to see the wire because the garland was in the way.You live and you learn!


This is how the garland looked once it had been secured to the wreath.  Do you see the big gap? My garland wasn't long enough to go around the entire circumference of my wreath so I added the ribbon/bow to fill the space.

talk about bloopers I forgot to remove the tag yikes!
I think the bow adds a nice festive touch. I added the animal print ribbon to give the wreath more pizazz! The only thing that I purchased for this creative project was garland. All in all I spent approximately $50 for this project.

 
I think this wreath turned out quite lovely, and I can't wait to hang them outside. 
Do you have any fall projects on your to do list?


2 Your Home,

My Fall Table

There are only nine days left until Thanksgiving. And I am so excited because I get to share it with close friends and family. By the way, the grand baby will be here too! Yay! Ok, back to the post.   My Fall Table turned out quite lovely if I must say so myself. This year instead of using a table cloth, I used a variety of fabric samples swatches to cover the table. So, what do you think? I love all the different colors patterns and textures, and they actually play off each other nicely. And I am hoping the fabric sample table cover will be a great conversation starter as well. I will let you know how it goes. Spode  China and pumpkins from the Dollar Tree who knew? Initially the table had two fall wreaths and two lanterns. You can see it here. But I had to remove one of each to make room for the table settings. You know how I love animal print. I think every room needs a little touch of it. How about you?             

Easy Last Minute Ideas For Fall

The count down has begun! Can you believe there are only 8 days left until the turkey is carved? So, today I figured I would share some easy last minute ideas to get you through Fall/Thanksgiving Holiday. So let's get started! These diy wreaths may look quite intimidating but on the contrary they aren't at all. To get this look you will need a grapevine wreath, garland of your choice, floral wire and ribbon. Simply take the garland and place it around the wreath. Once the garland is in place attach it to the wreath using floral wire. Next, add the bow and hang the wreath. Project complete! Your family and friends will be impressed. For best results make sure that the garland is long enough to cover the entire circumference of the wreath. If the wreath above is still a bit much, why not give this wreath a try? The only things needed are a grapevine wreath and ribbon of your choice. Now make a big bow and attach it to the wreath. Voila!  I used a pipe cleaner/chenille

How I decorated my Christmas Tree/Foyer for less than $30

 I am over the super excited to bring you one of several posts revealing how I decorated my Christmas Tree/Foyer for less than $30.Yes,you heard me right. And I must say it looks quite fabulous, but before the reveal can take place, we have to go through the process. Sorry!!! So, keep reading to find out how I transformed the space for so little. Each year I try to incorporate creative ways to decorate my home on an extremely tight budget, and this year was no exception. But in order to get the ball rolling on this project, I needed some inspiration. Well, my inspiration came via a promise I made to my grand baby. I promised her that Zsa Zsa(that's me) would decorate a Christmas tree she would love. However, with that being said, I also knew the design/decor had to be whimsical and playful enough for her. But it also had to appeal to the adults in the family as well. (mainly me) So, I put my design thinking cap on and came up with a plan, that I thought would appeal to both partie
