Happy Thursday, everyone!
I don’t know about you, but as soon as September hits, I am immediately ready to cover my house with leaves and pumpkins. One thing that is always a challenge with changing seasons (and with decorating in general) are the expenses that come with transitioning seasonal decor. So the question is: how can I add character to my home with festive, fall elements without breaking the bank?
I typically have laying around in our basement a variety flowers, grapevine wreaths, and barn-wood. I really wanted a new wreath for our front door, but I wasn’t prepared to face the price tag at Hobby Lobby. I decided to create my own, and it took me less than 10 minutes from start to finish!
-grapevine wreath (or other rustic wreath to be used as a neutral base)
-assortment of fall colored flowers (you can mix in some leaves as well)
-boxwood sprigs (any type of greenery sprig would do)
-barn wood piece (about 12 inches long)
**I used few leftover flowers from when a Michael’s closed last fall. Both real & artificial flowers can add up to a hefty sum quickly, so don’t be afraid to be mindful of your wallet at places like Dollar Tree & Michael’s.
**The boxwood sprigs are from the bushes in our front yard, but you can use artificial ones just as easily.
