Dear Fall Weather,
The good people of the South are pining for your arrival. We are sweating in our jeans in hopes of hurrying you along. All we are asking for is a little cold front, just a taste of things to come. You are my favorite season, after all. This 95 degree with 85% humidity madness has to end.
In honor of the fall weather that I just know is right around the corner, I decided it was time for a little frugal crafting. Hobby Lobby had wreaths and fake flowers on 50% off, so I got a grapevine wreath and a bouquet of sunflowers for under $5. Then I found a fall leaf garland at the Dollar Store. The grand total for the wreath was $6, plus the glue and scissors I already own. I’ve seen a few fall wreaths around that I’ve loved, but they cost $25-$45. Not in the budget…
I wrapped the garland around the wreath, securing it in the back in between the wires of the wreath, securing it with a little glue. I removed the flowers from their stems and covered the backs of them in glue. I wedged 3 of them in a row down into the wreath, holding them in place with pressure until the glue set.
Now if the weather will just cooperate, I will be spending a lot of time here:

Becca, I love your wreath! You should be getting a taste of fall soon, it has been rather chilly here in the mornings. Have a fabulous week!
Autumn/Fall is my favourite season too 🙂
Your wreath is fun, and I love the table and mason jars on your porch!
I love that idea! I so need to get of my duff and get something harvest made and up (before it is already time for Christmas, LOL). I got the NameCross Monday, and I am in love with it. Thank you again for hosting that giveaway!
