It’s almost Winter, and everyone seems to be decorating for Christmas already. Not here. We’re making sure to have festive decorations for our Thanksgiving meal on Thursday. That’s right, Thanksgiving is at my house! There will be 8 of us total, and I’m planning to make way too much food. I’ll talk more about that tomorrow when I post my menu plan for the week.
I thought I’d go ahead and post another one of my Thanksgiving projects. This is something that could work for the whole Autumn season.
I’ve decided to make a wreath for my front door for every month/holiday/whatever. The first one I ever made was the Halloween one, and the door just looked too empty when I took it down.
I knew I wanted to do something similar to this. I almost had to come up with a different idea because it was so hard to find the fake leaves this late in the season! Luckily, I found them tucked back in the Halloween clearance at Walmart. I got quite a deal on them, too!!
I wrapped it in orange tulle. This was just to cover the back. I didn’t feel like covering that side with leaves. I also wanted a pretty background in case there were gaps in the leaves.
I burnt my hand pretty bad, twice, while gluing the leaves on this thing. OUCH! I had blisters.
Yeah, that’s right. I’m not only a hazard to myself in the kitchen, but apparently the craft room as well! I need to learn to be more careful!
I finished the wreath off by adding a ribbon for hanging and a big, orange bow.
I’m really happy with the way it turned out. It makes me sad when I think about taking it down for Christmas! Although, I do have a bunch of ideas for a Christmas wreath that I’m pretty excited about. Trinity wants peacock themed Christmas stuff. That’s what you have to look forward to! Peacocks have been a theme around here lately. I saw them a few times on my running trail, then again by the side of the road on Halloween. I saw a bunch a few years ago, too. It’s weird.
That had nothing to do with anything, but I’m a championship rambler.
Have another picture!
I’m excited to get my crafty pants on soon. I have a lot of projects to make for Christmas!
