A Fall Wreath
This weekend my friend Lisa and I got together and crafted! It’s becoming an annual tradition. We had planned for what felt like months to have our day. My husband’s best friend flew in just for the day… Okay not really, he made his arrangements to fly in and I made our crafting day plans! We scowled pinterest for some fun Halloween or Fall crafts. Even though I’ve been a member of Pinterest for longer then Lisa, she’s got tons of pins and lots of great ideas.
One of the ideas was this wreath by Kindred Spirit Mommy.
Isn’t it beautiful? We agreed that it was the project. (Of course I was delusional and thought we’d get a bunch more stuff done, but we completed our wreaths just in time to go home.)
All the directions for the wreath are on Kindred Spirit Mommy’s blog. We ordered the tulle from BBCrafts just as she suggested. I got all other supplies from Michaels. One thing that she doesn’t mention in the directions is how much tulle to buy. We used 4 rolls of tulle per wreath. One black, one chocolate brown, one red and one orange.
Here is mine all hung up.
This is the full front view of the wreath. The owl is looking to the right. I’d like to say that he’s looking that way on purpose because that’s where the door is, but the reality is he was really difficult to get on. I glued and glued and glued.
Turns out the side looking owl works out. Because he looks at you as you walk through the door.
That’s the start of the Halloween decorating at our house.
I really love this wreath. It’s so pretty and both Lisa and I felt great after completing them. I bought other tulle to make a Christmas or one that will look more like an Italian pride wreath. Still not sure how to make it look all Christmasy and not so Italian. I also would like to make a Valentine’s Day one. That one is more important to me so I’ll probably get it done first.
Thanks to Kindred Spirit Mommy for the idea and thanks to Lisa for initially pinning it! Totally love it!
