Today’s Garden Buzz entry will be a DIY!
Walking down the Fall isle at Home Goods made me want to start decorating for the season. This year we will be skipping the full outdoor Fall decorations but I still wanted my house to look season appropriate. Browsing through the store I spotted some beautiful wreaths. They had a great selection but I wanted something a little more unique, so I decided to use whatever resources I had in my back yard.
I stopped at my local craft store and picked up a foam wreath circle. It only cost me about $7. I already had a hot glue gun, some glue sticks, and a burlap rope at home. ( Burlap rope is from a previous project )
Once I got home I started exploring the yard for some colorful foliage as well as anything else I thought would work.
First, I hot glued the burlap rope around my foam wreath to conceal the actual foam. Then I started laying out my backyard finds in different configurations until I found the one I liked.
Voila! The finished product looks better than I expected. I saw these swirl paper flowers at my local craft store and decided to make some of my own. (<-- Craft Level: EASY) Feel free to add some pumpkins on your porch for a more defined October look.
