DIY Fall Wreath

 So… my favorite season is here and I wanted to be ready! 😉 Of course that meant a trip to Michael’s for a new fall DIY project!

This one is so simple! The whole project cost around $12. It is also a great idea for a house warming gift!

There were left over supplies with this project, so you could make two or have fun making one with a friend! (It will save you both half the cost! You will just each need your own wreath).

1

What you will need for this project:

-Hot glue gun and glue sticks (2)
-1 pair of pliers
-1 Ashland Grapevine wreath (18 inch)
-1 orange mum stem
-1 stem wheat filler
-1 stem berry filler
-1 bush of maple and berry
– (Optional): wreath hanger

P.S.

ALWAYS use a coupon when shopping at Michael’s. You can download the Michael’s app for your phone or you can use my favorite app, SnipSnap, which always has a ton of Michael’s coupons available.

First, use the pliers to separate your stems. As you can see below, someone (aka Dexter) was having fun with this project too!

3

Take your stems and arrange them in your wreath the way you like them. Feel free to follow how mine turned out if you like!

I tend to place all of the flowers in my wreath before I glue them, because i like to move things around to see what looks best.

TADA! What do you think? Looks nice right? So simple and easy!

Happy fall ladies!

Fall Decor

It’s officially fall in the Speer home! Is that bad? I know most people are still hanging on to every last ounce of summer, but not me! I am in LOVE with the fall. It is my favorite time of the year and decorating for this season is one of my favorite things to do! If you know me well, you will know my two favorite things to decorate are my apothecary jars and my candle tray. Whatever the season, I take this task very seriously. They need to look great!

Thanks to an impromptu shopping trip with Christina today, I was able to snag these great fall finds for only $20! Another essential to all fall decor is the fall wreath. The wreath you see at the bottom of this post, is a wreath I made last week. This coming Friday on Society Letters, you will be able to find out how to make one yourself! Make sure to check it out!

Enjoy a sneak peak of our home decor this fall! More pics to come when the mums and pumpkins arrive 😉
