Simple Fall Wreath

Fall is here and the colors are beautiful on the trees don't you agree? I was inspired by the saturated color all around my neighborhood and decided to update my front door. I seem to be short on time as I get things ready for baby and still work full time. Hence the lack of posts. But I found an hour to do this simple project and I think it is quite sweet. I took a wee trip to Michael's the other day and bought 2 packs of faux leaves ($1.69 each) some ribbon and a letter "S" to complete this easy update.

I painted the "S" with coordinating craft paint and started to attach the leaves with hot glue.

I used a dark green satin ribbon to tie the "S" in the centre of the willow wreath (reused from my Spring wreath)

I think it turned out quite nice...simple and definitely says "fall" to me. Our Canadian Thanksgiving is this Monday...I will be spending my entire holiday weekend at work, but I am reminded how Thankful I am for my health each time I go to work with my sick patients.
Have you made a Fall Wreath? I would love to see them! How about a mantle? I have yet to attack that project...we will see!
