My Summer Wreath

Pretty wreath to warm up my heart and soul as I come and go during my summer days.

First, I suggest visiting them famous and well known dollar stores, use your 40% off Hobby Lobby coupon, or use your Michael’s coupons.  Scour for some great deals with the use of coupons is surely your best best as well.

Re-purposing a Summer Wreath

For this particular wreath, I used my dollar store finds and some Hobby Lobby discounted finds.  I only purchased fall floral stems if on sale.  Some items were originally priced at $3 and on sale at 50% off. Great finds and deals! Others at $2.50, $2.00, etc. You get the point.

I wiggled them into my Summer wreath, a simple hand twist in back to secure it’s position, and continued to fill my re-purposed wreath into a Fall Fabulous Wreath that will carry us thru until Thanksgiving. I also added in some dangling acorns! Adorable.

EXAMPLES OF FALL DECOR THAT WILL INSPIRE YOU

Exciting news!  Finished my FALL DECOR in house and front door!  I didn’t pumpkin everything nor went the Halloween decor appearance either.  I wanted something more classic yet minimum transition to last thru Thanksgiving.

I incorporated lots of pumpkins mostly white and orange because I haven’t yet braved out into other flamboyant colors pumpkin schemes. Maybe next year but since this was my first try to decorating a certain way, which isn’t really any style.  I simply gathered my old items from last year, purchased some new items this year, dollar store finds, backyard finds, and a thrifty item.  Meshed them all together.

I don’t think decorating has to be so complicated especially since you know what you like and don’t.  It’s not permanent, right? So be playful. Mix and match. Add color or substract color.  My husband knows I love color! Like red lipstick and orange shirts.  Heck my office is Salmon colored.  Beautiful color!

Here are my pictures!

 

Enjoy! Inspire yourself to greatness! This was such a fun to do for myself!  I’ve attached some links in the pictures below to purchasing similar decor items as myself.

Front Door Fall Decor

Everywhere one can already see all the Fall decorations on display on front door entrances, back porch areas, and inside the home.  Not to mention on Pinterest, where one can go crazy and “fall” (pun) in love with all the beautiful displays of fall anticipation.

I usually decorate my yard with a Halloween theme.  Ghouls, cripted hands, skulls, blood signs, rats, and bats.  Halloween night is the best for me! I gather all my goodies during the day while the kids are in school. Some dry ice, ingredients for my requested Goo Juice, candies, and such. And it’s a great chicken day.  I mean, why cook when there’s drive-thru that day and I have so much prep work.  I’m really just excited to see the other little visitors about to Trick or Treat at our home.

I start playing scary music in home, pop open the windows because it’s fresh outside and why not.  I then take out our spider glow lights.  Once the lights are hung, the spiders glow and circulate on the driveway pavement. I then grab some tongs to handle the dry ice and throw 1 piece of ice into a bucket of hot faucet water.  As it begins to bubble, we grab an oscillating fan to blow air in different directions.

Two years ago, my scary pumpkin face hung on a stand up pole we have in the garage and one of kids handles the buttons as kids approach.  My other son is playing Halloween theme (Michael Meyers) song to the movie on his mini xylophone. My daughter had some amazing white face paint on her face and dressed like a Jester and little did we know that her face paint glowed magnificently in the dark. She acted like she was a dead doll against the garage, dry ice smoke intermittently passing over her, skull face welcoming the kiddos with “The appetizers have arrived! Ha, Ha, Ha!”, Halloween theme song playing, my scary music blaring out of the window, glowing spiders on the ground! Kids stopping to takes pictures with the “dead doll”!  It was a great photo op. That made for an amazing fun night with the kids and great memories.

Fast forward. The kids are older and two didn’t care to go trick or treating last year, so I scaled back a bit and this year even more so.  I don’t even think my baby daughter wants to even dress up?  Unless, it’s just for giving out candy in the driveway. We will see what happens. I normally where a cat eye mask or cat ears.  Something fun. Life is suppose to be fun.

This year, I didn’t decorate with my usual Ghouls and such spread across the yard, but decorated with a more “homey” Pinterest type curb appeal.  But those were some great memories to share and reminisce upon.  I even got teary-eyes typing this blog.  The gifts of being a Mom. Just love it!

So without further ado. Here’s my Front Door Fall Decor Picture.  Possibly a front porch sign coming up. I’ll post pictures later on that.

Front Door FALL Decor Share The Flippin Fun

I used my plant holder and mixed in some faux pumpkins.  I had 2 empty pots and flipped those around to create 2 different heights for the pumpkins. I nestled the pumpkins so the foliage will drape around them. Pumpkins grow on vines so this made it look very garden like.  Ready for the harvest.  I them ribbon tied some old driftwood I had and snuggled it in to give it a more complete and adorable appearance.

Hope you enjoy as much as I enjoyed sharing!

They do not say to themselves, ‘Let us fear the LORD our God, who gives autumn and spring rains in season, who assures us of the regular weeks of harvest.’
