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!

I am linking up with Jenn over at Clean & Scentsible! Be sure to check out her FANTASTIC blog!

Oh Becky, this is truly wonderful news. When is the big day?
I am so out of the loop...Am finally on the mend. Gee, I am feeling so old. I just get over one ailment and another one takes it's place.
Have not had either the energy nor the time to blog, but thought I would stop in and say HI. Decorating the shop this Saturday, so am looking forward to checking this off the "to do" list.
Well again am overjoyed to hear your great news...H*U*G*S...Rosie

Hi Becky!

I've seen a ton of things done with letters... but this is definitely a first. It's gorgeous and super creative!

Congrats on the baby too! When is your due date? We're due the 18th but I have a feeling it will be sooner. Poor kid is running out of room!
