Fall Wreath Re-do

By Karin Brosnan - Tuesday, September 01, 2009

I made this FALL WREATH YEARS AGO and decided it needed some plumping up! It had nice bones it just needed a little something extra to make it fabulous.

While I was in St. George I went to a store called Tai Pan and they had these beautiful BROWN ACORNS, A YUMMY SOFT GREEN PEAR and other round balls covered in RED AND BROWN DRIED LEAVES and I just knew they would add that extra something to my wreath.

I simply got out my HANDY DANDY GLUE GUN and attached them to the wreath I then added little touches here and there of EXTRA FALL LEAVES (that I already had LAYING AROUND IN MY AUTMUMN BOX IN THE GARAGE)....to make the wreath fuller and VOILA!! a fabulous full fall wreath for just a few extra bucks.I really love it now and it looks very nice hanging on my front door.

My Husband asked me last night....Is it fall already? I said yes it will be tomorrow..Sept. 1st! He said that is not when fall is..
I said at our house it is. :)


FAll IS MY FAVORITE TIME OF YEAR BEGINNING ON SEPTEMBER 1ST.
ANYONE ELSE STARTING TODAY?

  10. Oh your wreath looks so very pretty!

    I wish it was fall here in Phoenix. But it's hard to think about pumpkins and turning leaves when it is 110! :)
    Another month.

    Thank you for your kind words about my girl. It helps.

  22. The wreath looks fabulous with the extras. I just went to Tai Pan Trading here in southern California for the first time last Saturday. I didn't see the items you found. But then there is so much to see it would be very easy to miss.
