Can’t you just feel it in the air? It’s coming…I just know it! Even though it’s still hotter’n blue blazes in these parts, much as I know the tax man cometh, I just KNOW that autumn is on its way, too! And so in preparation, today we’re getting our front doors ready with an easy to make wreath!
Honestly, when it comes time to decorating, I’m
mildly seriously “challenged”…but I DO appreciate a fun craft, and I like to do something to help visitors and guests feel welcome, so a wreath seemed like a good idea 🙂
- straw wreath (I used a 14″ size)
- ~60 3″ square scraps in whatever colors/patterns you like (you can do less, but your wreath won’t be as full…)
- pinking shears
- screw driver
Anyway, measure and cut out 3″ squares, and if you cut them out using pinking shears, they won’t fray and will have cute, festive edges…
Create a bow with the raffita ribbon, and I made a loop to hang it up with some of the leftover material I had…
Voila! Easy fall decoration 🙂
(I had enough leftover scraps that I’m gonna attempt a garden flag for outside the door…if I get the
time courage to try it, I’ll let you know how it goes…)
Do you have any fall crafts you’re working on now? Or do you have something you always do this time of year?
