Happy Fall!

We are finally experiencing some cooler weather! Yesterday was really the first day of cooler temperatures and I couldn’t wait for Will to wear one of his new fall outfits. He wore the hat all day – and has it on this morning too.

Several blogs that I read have been about decorating for fall lately and I caught the bug. I always get overwhelmed when I think about decorating for different seasons or holidays but I came up with game plan this time. I usually have the mindset that my ENTIRE house has to be decorated differently but really, that is not very practical. So my game plan includes switching out a few things in our living room and kitchen for each season like artwork and decorative accessories. I picked up a few things this weekend to go with some things I already owned and am well on my way to being decorated for fall. I still have a couple of things on my “wish list” that I am going to look for this week.

One project I saw on two different blogs (Thrifty Decor Chic & Homebody Holly) was a “Dollar Store Wreath.” I already owned a huge bag of fake leaves so I had to buy a foam board ($1), hot glue sticks ($1) and a hot glue gun ($5). $7 total is not too shabby since the inspiration was this wreath from Pottery Barn that cost about $50.

I cut my large piece of foam board in half then traced an 8X10 frame in the center.

Next I cut out the center.

Then came the fun part – gluing all the leaves onto the wreath. I only burnt myself twice!

The finished product. I love it! Now to get some ribbon to hang it. I’ll have to have a fall decoration reveal post when I get everything just the way I want it.

    I love our little fellow all dressed up! SO adorable!
    You are a “crafty” person; I love that: I used to putter with things; had so much fun. Good mindset and stress releaser as well.Wreath is very FALLISH: I like it.

    Will is too cute in that hat…looks like a New Yorker for sure! The wreath is cute, too!

    I love the hat!! He looks adorable in it. I wonder how long he will tolerate people using the word “adorable” to describe him?

    That is just about the cutest little boy in that hat I’ve ever seen. Was that last thing you made a frame? His picture needs to go in it and it will be perfect. I hope Baby Thomas Earl is that cute.
