jumping across the back patio and tortilla soup simmering in my favorite orange cast iron pot.
Loving every moment of it and remembering how much I love this time of the year and
just wondering why Fall takes so dreadfully long to arrive in North Texas.
So with the cooler weather arriving I felt inspired to make this natural Fall Wreath over the weekend
and I snapped a few photos of it while the morning sun came into our bedroom.
You have seen this favorite armoire of mine many a time, it just makes a great backdrop and
I love to photograph it too.
You know how you have the same piece of furniture for many years,
and tend to forget all of the lovely details.
Whenever, I add a new wreath to this armoire, I am always reminded of the quaint and intriguing
shop it came from in the historical city of New Orleans.
Great memories for me.
So, the items need for this wreath are sweet and simple...
For this Natural Fall Wreath I used-
1. Grapevine Wreath
3. Pine cones- assorted sizes
4. Faux leaves
5. Faux red apples
6. Burlap Ribbon
7. Mini Felt pumpkins
8. Glue gun
I found these pine cones while we were in Colorado this Summer and tucked them in my
suitcase, I just knew I would find somewhere to put them, and the acorns came from the many
walks I take through our neighborhood.
North Texas may be short on water, but we have plenty of Oak Trees!
Oh, these itty bitty pine cones I saved from last year.
I found these at Wal Mart and they are even scented - cinnamon, an added bonus for sure.
So then, with all of these supplies gathered together, I usually place them on the wreath and
see where they look the best before I hot glue.
Then I make my bow, it isn't a professional bow, but I am getting better at making them.
From start to finish this probably took 30 minutes, to be honest I lost track of time, just
because I was enjoying the weather so, so much.
I think thats a good thing, though, don't you?
And then I ended the day with a little Fall vignette on a chippy cedar chest with some fun
attic finds from my own attic!
Now, that's a story for another day.
Do you have any projects planned for the week?
