Just in the past few weeks it finally starting feeling like fall. I love fall and decorating my house for fall. A few weeks ago I was decorating for Halloween and realized I really only have decorations for Halloween and Christmas. Somehow I don’t have any fall/Thanksgiving decor. All I currently have in our house for fall are several gourds. To add a little fall to our home I made this easy peasy wreath.
The base is a Grapevine Wreath for$4.99. I bought 6 different natural flowers from the Dollar Tree. I cut and separated each flower from the bunches and weaved them through the wreath. To get them to stay I bent the end of wired stem and weaved it through the layers of the wreath. I started with one type of flower and evenly placed each piece in one single direction. Then continued with each type of flower until voila, I have a beautiful (inexpensive) fall wreath.
Little inexpensive updates to the exterior can go a long way. I didn’t love the exterior of our house, especially the color and old roof when we first moved in. I would like to fix both, but until we have the money, these little changes make a huge impact on our home! I am in love with how it looks and am so excited to come home everyday. Our home is becoming more “us” with each update and now has personality and charm. Below are a couple before and after shots.
Here is a look at what we’ve done to add some charm:
-White rockers from Sears- $99 each and took an hour or so to assemble
-Black shudders from Lowe’s— $28-$41 for each window depending on size and took half an hour to hang all around the house
-Address plaque from Front Gate— $99 and took a minute to hang
-Flowers-we planted iceberg roses in our front planter and abutilon to the left of our front door, which should both bloom soon and will add some color and life.
–DIY Spring Wreath– $10 and took 10 minutes to put together
-Bright white trim- $30 for a gallon of paint and took 4 hours for my husband, dad, grandpa and father-in-law to sand and paint
I love it and hope you do!
