Since Fall is basically here, although it's still in the hundreds this past week here in Oklahoma, I knew it was time to get busy on a Fall wreath. :)
If you have followed this blog a little while then you know my favorite things to make are wreaths. I hadn't had a cute one on my door for a while. The last one I made was my OKC Thunder wreath. They lost that night I put it up. whaa. My husband said I jinxed them, lol. So I thought, well I'll just take it down. But they ended up losing every game after that. double whaa.
Since then my door has been totally bare, which gives me major anxiety, I must have cute door decor! ;)
Anyway, I'm totally loving how this one turned out! I didn't want to spend very much money on it, so I thought what can I do for $5? I got a wreath form for 2 something because I had a 40% off coupon from HL, it was originally $3.99. Then I was feeding my addiction, ahem, I mean browsing the scrapbook paper aisle and came across this burnt orange chevron and thought, YES! I can use this, the same way as I did the book page wreath.
Then I found a really cute piece of paper that coordinated with the chevron. It had Fall words written all over it, I had to get it.
After I cut feather shapes out of the paper, I glued them half way around.
I used the paper to make flowers by twisting it into a flower shape. I used a blue piece I already had, and burlap the same way. Then I added a button for an extra texture.
Once I got the paper and flowers glued on I thought it needed something else, a little bunting always makes everything better! I printed "FALL" onto an actual book page, and glued it to burlap. I painted the branches of the wreath a blue before adding the bunting.
So, I spent $2 something on the wreath, another $1.50 for the paper, and I had the paint and burlap, so that is definitely under my $5 budget!!! I was really excited about it. :)
I love how the colors complement each other, and I liked adding the not so typical Fall color as well.
There are endless styles and colors of scrapbook paper, so the possibilities of this kind of wreath are infinite. Plus it doesn't break the bank!
Thanks for checking it out! :)
