Today I am gonna take a break from the laundry room makeover to share a fun & easy fall project I completed a couple days ago! Is that alright with y’all?!
I have to admit, with all of fun fall projects floating around blogland & Pinterest, I’ve struggled to stay focused on the laundry room!! I’m so excited for pumpkins, mums, and everything else that comes along with the fall season!! I’m so ready to start decorating!!
The first project I wanted to complete for fall was to make a new wreath for our front door! I’ve used the same wreath (just a cheap one I bought at JoAnn Fabrics) for the past couple of years. It was starting to fall apart & was looking quite sad, so this year I thought I would whip one up instead of buying one!
I’m kinda thrilled with the way it turned out!!! 🙂
Wanna see how I made it?!
I bought a package (is that what its called?!) of yarn from JoAnn Fabrics. This one is called “Barley” and it’s from the Vanna White line. I personally had no idea that Vanna had her own line of yarn, but let me tell you….her yarns are sooo pretty!! I debated over several different colors before choosing this one!
One package of yarn should do it, but if you want a thicker or bulkier wreath, you might pick up a couple! They are $3.99 a piece, but you can almost always find a coupon!!
Then I picked up a few fall picks/sprays from JoAnn’s and a couple from Hobby Lobby. Both stores have them on sale this week!
Then I stopped into the Dollar Store & picked up a pool noodle for a buck!
If you are on Pinterest, I’m sure you have seen this trick a time or two, but just in case you have been living in a hole I will clue you in! 🙂 You can use the pool noodle to make a wreath form!!
My pool noodle was 46″ long & I had to trim about 4 inches off of it to get it to form a good circle. I also used this trick to help hold it together & then reinforced it with some duct tape.
This was my first time making a wreath form out of a pool noodle, but let me tell you…it worked like a charm!!
Once you have your noodle all taped up & ready to go, you just take your yarn & start wrapping….
You just wrap….and wrap…..and wrap…….and W.R.A.P!!!!!
Totally takes forever, but looks really pretty when it’s done!
I really like the look of this yarn with it’s black & cream flecks in it! Kinda reminds me of a big, comfy, fall sweater! 🙂 I know I’m WEIRD…..ahem, moving on! 🙂
So, I totally forgot to take pictures of how I added the fall picks/sprays, but basically, I just decided on an arrangement & hot glued them on accordingly! Easy enough?!
As for the bunting, I just cut out seven little triangles from some scrap fabric I had laying around….
Then I got out my stencil that I purchased at Hobby Lobby & stenciled the letters onto each individual triangle to spell out the word “Harvest.”
I just used some craft paint that I had & applied it using a small paint brush.
Here is how they turned out…..
Once they were dry, I just hot glued them onto a piece of jute (twine). I used a couple of straight pins & some hot glue to secure the bunting onto the wreath…..
I LOVE the added “cuteness” the mini bunting adds to wreath! It just makes me smile!
All done & sitting pretty on my front door! 🙂
I really love these little fall berries! I found them at Hobby Lobby. All of the other adornments were bought at JoAnn Fabrics.
Have you done any fall decorating yet?!
