I looked up at the calendar last week and realized it was OCTOBER! How did that happen??!? Fall is my very favorite season, and October is definitely the best month, ever. Usually by this time of year I have my entire house all decked out in fall decorations. I knew that the kids were going to have some friends over before and after the Homecoming dance, and that was exactly the kick I needed to get into the decorating spirit. I had spied this fabulous wreath a few weeks ago, and knew I wanted to make one for my front door. I love, love, love felt, and I especially love all the jewel-tone fall colors together.
The directions for this wreath are really simple: I started with a green Styrofoam wreath form (I got mine at Hobby Lobby), and just cut up dozens of felt leaves. Then I just used straight pins and pined them on randomly. Some of the leaves I pinned on straight, but many of them I folded up a bit before I pinned them on so they would stick out. I made sure to do the outside and inside of the wreath, but I did not do the back. I think from start to finish this project took me about 2 hours; super cute and easy--the best kind of project!
Have you decorated for fall yet?
