That wreath I made last spring was starting to look a bit faded, so I decided to switch it out with something more fall-ish. I was at Hobby Lobby this morning and noticed that a lot of the wreath-making items were on sale, so I got the wreath for around two bucks, and the fall "welcome" plaque for around six bucks using my 40% off coupon. I hung them both up on my ginormous suction cup wreath holder, and that was it.
I may go back and wrap some coordinating ribbon around the wreath, but I didn't really see any I liked this morning so we'll see. I like how the wreath gives some dimension to the plaque without making it look too busy or gaudy.
So I didn't bust out the glue gun or sewing machine for this one. And the step that took the longest was cutting off price tags. Who cares? Not every project needs to be time-consuming to be pretty in the end. And yes, this is currently hanging on our front door. I haven't seen any other fall decor on any of our neighbor's doors, so maybe I'll be the one who officially kicks this season off. :o)
