Here in Boston, Fall has hit with a bang over the past week. The foliage is in full effect, there’s a definite crispness in the air, and houses are decorated with ‘mums and pumpkins.
To get in the spirit, and to jazz up my curbside appeal, I knew I needed a snazzy wreath for my front door. Do you remember the burlap wreath that I previously made? Well after 4+ months of sun, wind & rain, it was looking as little less than perfect. So, in an effort to keep this project cheap, I decided to upcycle my previously diy’ed wreath!
I dropped into my local AC Moore after work last Friday to see what they had in the way of faux flowers. Luckily for me, all the fall flowers were all sale for 99c each! I also decided to grab a wooden letter “S” (for Shaughnessy!). With a 50% coupon plus my 15% teacher discount, my purchase came to $4.38. Can you say bargain? Whoop whoop!
I cut the old flowers off the old burlap wreath, cut the stems off the new flowers and attached them as well as the S to the wreath. I didn’t even have any glue sticks for my hot glue gun left, so I used some wood glue. I’m resourceful (lazy?) like that!
Annnnnd, here it is all glued and hanging on the front door:
My photographs also reveal that my front door needs a bit of TLC. *sigh*….another project to add to my never ending list!
This burlap wreath with the wonderful fall colors in the faux sunflowers really brightens up the house from the street. Plus, the giant S just adds a fun touch!
