I absolutely LOVE this time of year! The cooler weather, the colors of the changing leaves, and the joys of hot cocoa and cookies all come together to create a delightful time. I hope you are enjoying autumn wherever you live.
Here’s a creative idea that I came up with and wanted to share with you, just in case you are a little bit like me and really can’t afford to buy or make a brand-new wreath for every season of the year.
Maybe I can do that some other day if I ever have oodles of storage space and an unlimited budget. But since that isn’t going to happen today, not at my home(not to mention that I can not stand waste), I decided to come up with my own version of an “Autumn Love” wreath.
I am so abundantly blessed, no matter whether or not I have a new wreath on my front door, but it is still fun to see something pretty outside when I come home from church, to greet me and anyone who approaches my home, so here’s what I did:
I took out last year’s wreath and changed it up to make a “new to me” wreath this year! I admit I have a special place in my heart for last year’s wreath, but they really are all wonderful memories for the time that they decorated my home.
I removed the old sign and bow. that I had last year, and then started adding some of my favorite colors with items I gathered from the Dollar Store, Goodwill, and even on a beautiful bunch of silk flowers from Michael’s that I got for half price.
The total cost of my wreath update was approximately $6 – $8!! Who doesn’t LOVE that price tag for a “new” autumn wreath?
Just take a closer look at my beautiful “Autumn Love” wreath and maybe you will be inspired to try your hand at updating an old wreath for your front door.
I know that this will be beautiful all season long, and will remind me of my blessings every day. Wishing you all the joy of autumn from my home to yours!
