Fall has always been one of my favorite seasons…well, next to Spring, after I finally get sick of the long Montana Winters which is usually the day riiiight after New Year’s…but that’s beside the point. Back to our Fall discussion! The change of the seasons means so many amazing things: fun, layered wardrobes (clothes: my secret obsession), FOOD ( My not-so-secret obsession), family and holiday decorating!
The subject of today’s post, however, is of the decorating portion of my Favorite Fall Features, more specifically, how I decided that I was in need of a new Fall Wreath. My old Fall wreath was just a bunch of orange and yellow leaves that I shoved into a grapevine wreath when I first became a wife. It was a decoration that I loved for many years but I decided that it was time for a fresh take on my version of Fall Décor.
The absolute best part about this Fall Wreath project was that it was almost entirely brought you by an impromptu visit to the Dollar Tree this morning. Since I already had my 18″grapevine wreath, all I needed was the color found in new floral pieces, which I found staring me in the face in the form of a sidewalk display as soon as I walked up to the store.
I went in, armed with $10 cash that I was determined to stay under as a personal DIY challenge, and a new-found admiration for deep purples and greens. After playing with the various floral pieces available, I came up with a magnificent blend of purples, dark greens, cream and orange/yellows spread sparingly. As always, at Dollar Tree, everything’s a dollar! So…I got 10 pieces and came up with this little beauty. So all-in-all, even if you want to add the cost of the wreath which you can get from several places online for around $5, this Fall Wreath project can be done under $15 but I did it with $10 and about 15 minutes of my time! So, go ahead and create your own amazing Fall wreath and let me know how it turned out!
