Okay, onto the decorating. I started getting all my stuff out of the basement yesterday. I made a lot of progress but there is still more to do. I went to the dollar store to get stuff to make my own wreath.
It seems that everyone in blog-world is making one so I jumped on the bandwagon too. I purchased a wreath, a bag of pumpkins/gourds and 3 leaf picks. $5 bucks - not bad. Then I found this cute little bag of acorns at Walmart for $3.00 and just had to have them!
Here is the wreath with all the leaves hot glued on. Then I glued on the mini pumpkins and gourds and some of the acorns. I think it turned out great and it was under $10 plus I have extra leaves and acorns for another project!! Here it is hanging on my front door - love it!!
After that project, I headed to Michaels and found some pumpkins on sale for $3.99. I hot glued some of the extra leaves left over from the wreath and added some berries I already had. Then I wanted to put an "S" initial on one and was getting ready to paint it when I remembered the trim I bought at JoAnn's. It was self adhesive and I just stuck it on and shaped it into an S. Easy peasy and so cute!!!

The Graphics Fairy and put it in a black frame.

on the front porch.
Here are some more pictures of my fall decorations:
I still need to make the pumpkin topiaries for my front porch. Those are soooo fun!!!! More pictures when I get that done.
Well, I'm heading back to the basement to get the rest of my decorations out. Enjoy this beautiful fall day!!
