Continuing on with my fall decorating extravaganza…let’s take it outside! I love, love, love to decorate the front door for fall! It’s so festive and makes me smile when I pull into the driveway. Or when I go get the mail. Or when I go outside just to look at my pretty pumpkins on the stoop. Heh heh. 😉
I made this wreath in about 20 minutes for less than $7! I found a large grapevine wreath at Michael’s for $2.99 and a package of preserved autumn stems for $3.50. I simply cut the stems to the length needed and hot glued them onto the wreath! I decided to hang it on a $1.99 cheapo clear wreath hanger instead of the nicer black, metal hangers because the front door is colored. I liked that the wreath hanger doesn’t draw your attention away from the wreath. I love the color of the front door with this wreath. Of course, within an hour of hanging my wreath, a bird tried to make a nest in it, so I had to go back around with the glue gun and secure some of the leaves. Thankfully, the bird has left it alone since, although my hubby was sad he didn’t get front row bird watching seats. 😉
I purchased some mums at the grocery store and scored these giant pumpkins at Wal-Mart for only $3.98 a piece! I almost purchased smaller pumpkins for $6.99 at the grocery store, but decided to hold off. My friend Kim told me a couple days ago that Wal-Mart had nice looking pumpkins on the cheap (Thanks, Kim!), so I broke my New Year’s Resolution to not go to Wal-Mart this year (haha!) and went and picked up two pumpkins for the door.
I can’t wait until my mums fully bloom! I started noticing moths in them, so sprayed them last night with some gentle plant spray. Hopefully they’ll get healthy again soon and give me some nice blooms!
Hope you enjoy!
