has for us-it seems as though it was just the 4th of July and now
here we are breezing along to the middle of August.
And naturally it was time for Wreath Makeover number 5...
Well, Red, White and Blue are last months colors-and
I don't know about you, but I am really thinking Fall!
As cute as this was, it had to be taken apart. Which I did, and only
left the white deco mesh.
Oh, I was really so close to cutting off all of the deco mesh too,
but then it occurred to me, the fuller, the better. I don't know why
I suddenly had this epiphany, I should have know this all along.
So, with snips here and there the old was gone and the new was in.
Just in time for welcoming Fall and a little cooler weather.(Please
cool weather come our way!)
You know the routine, a trip to wonderful, magnificent, colorful
Hobby Lobby. Burlap, wire edges with an ever so subtle amount of
glitz woven through. Off white mums, and stripe ribbon for the
bow and I was in business!
I am super pleased with this bow. Bows aren't my true "thing," so
naturally I was a bit of a skeptic. After cutting beige and white
ribbon into 24 inch lengths, folding, wiring and then hot gluing, my
bow was ready to place on the wreath.
As usual I have moved my wreath from one spot to the other. I
really like the mix of grey on the antique secretary desk with the
browns and creams on the wreath. However, I also like the wreath
on the black front door with the lead glass.
My Rooster is years and years old and is from an outlet mall, while
the cute little pewter clock is a gift from my oldest daughter. These
treasures are true keepsakes. I found the little wire basket
at an antique store- not really certain if it is an antique, but for
$5.00, I felt as though I wasn't breaking the bank.
