At the beginning of September I went to the dollar store. I mostly purchased things for a co-op preschool and a chore chart for my family.
I walked down the flower aisle and picked up this wreath. My husband does not like wreaths--not one bit. So it sat in my sewing room until this last week. I am trying to clean my sewing room--one project at a time.
I bought 4 strands of leaves. I think two of them came from Michaels, purchased with coupon so they were super cheap. There are a mixture of different types of leaves, maples, ash & oak. Some with sparkles, some with neon colors, and a good mix of oranges & reds. Michaels is clearing out their fall leaves and flowers, so if you wanted to make this wreath it would probably cost less than $5.
I took the leaves off the vine and put them in a bin. I started gluing leaves on two at a time (because they were hooked together.) As I glued I made sure they were facing the same direction. Each leaf needed to be going counterclockwise, because that was the direction I just happened to be gluing.
I hope my hubby will be okay with this view when he arrives home from work.
Not too shabby for dollar store items, right? I hung the wreath with a 3M command hook--it's impossible to hang it with wreath hanger because of the window.
Hope you are adjusting to the time change. Happy Fall y'all.
