My first ever fall. Can you tell I'm excited? There is a crispness in the air, our windows are open, and the leaves are juuuuuuuuuust starting to change.
So I went out and bought a bunch of pumpkins and made my first wreath! (see my post a few days ago here about the wreaths that inspired me - although I realize now, that mine looks nothing like the ones I posted about).
First up, my pumpkins:
I decided just to keep them simple this year and use only white paint. Mostly because I was so excited to just paint them and put them outside!
If you want to kick it up a notch though - go check out Alisa Burke's geometric painted pumpkins that she posted yesterday - they are really, really great.
**Also, just a little note... See that big rock the polka dot one is sitting on that? I pulled that out of a stream the other day, carried it up a hill, and drove it home just for it's place at my front door.
And next, my wreath:
I went the speedy route on the wreath - used a coupon from Michaels to get the wreath, and they had some paper flower packs on sale for 25 cents. Then, I used these cute paper flowers I ordered from Crazy About Creating on etsy. Other than that, just some felt, fabric strips and hot glue I pulled out of my craft box...
Super quick and super easy and now my front porch is fun and welcoming! Hoorah!
