DIY Fall Wreath

I can't decide if Texas is slowly giving into fall, or if it's just being a tease? I've been in the mood to do something fallish and crafty, so I went to Michael's yesterday looking for inspiration. I decided on a wreath -- I've never made one before, so I thought if it turned out terrible then it wouldn't be a crazy waste of money (the wreath itself was only $4!).

J took the camera with him dove hunting {bleh}, so I tried to improvise with the camera on my Mac...

Didn't work out too well, so I don't really have any photos of the different phases. But seriously? Just take a plain wreath, dip some fall stuff into Mod Podge and stick it on. Follow with a little orange and gold glitter and viola! A fall wreath!

I think the little pumpkins are my favorite part. They were cute already, but I love how they look in the light after adding a bit of orange glitter.




I didn't want to add too much glitter, just a dab here and there on the leaves to make them shimmer in the afternoon light.


I decided not to go all the way around, even though I had plenty of stuff leftover. Partly because I think the wreath itself is beautiful, partly because I'd watched The Sound of Music twice in a row and was brain-dead.


Hopefully it'll last awhile, at least until I'm ready for Christmas! :)

I love this! Great job! I'm always impressed when anyone attempts a wreath because I never have. I'm pretty sure mine would not look anywhere as great as yours does! Thanks so much for stopping by and visiting my blog and leaving a sweet comment. So fun to meet new folks here in blogland!
