Fall Wreath – A Pinterest Fail (My Fault)

Fall-Burlap-Wreath-DIY-Chevron-Orange-Pumpkin

Once upon a time (last week), some friends and I decided to get together and try to make the wreath you see above (click pic for source).  This blogger said that he took her 20 minutes to make it.  I’ve never made a wreath before, but I figured it shouldn’t be that hard.

WOW!  Doesn’t it look amazing?!  I mean, it looks exactly like the example above.  Am I right? No really, look closer.  Give it time, you’ll see it eventually.  Lolz.  It’s just so sad and pathetic-looking.  I ended up spending 4 hours (really only like 2 actual hours of being productive) working on it and I came home with this.  I would not give up though.  To be fair, I didn’t have the right kind of burlap.  After getting the correct supplies, I worked on it over the weekend (about an hour total) and produced a finish product.

Much better.  I’m kind of digging it.  A little proud of myself.  It’s not the same as the Pinterest one, but much of the burlap she had was unavailable, so I just kind of made stuff up as I went.  Good ol’ trial and error.  Also, watching a two minute YouTube video did wonders for me.

Don’t be surprised if the next time you see my front door it’s a different color and has a new handle.  I’m in all out remodel mode and nobody can stop me now.

I’ve been ready for Autumn for over a month now.  I could “feel” it in the air.  I don’t do a lot of decorating for Autumn, so it will be this and some random pumpkins around the house. I did spy some cinnamon scented pine cones at the the grocery store that were subtly calling my name.  They’re on my list to pick up this week.  They smell so amazing and I just can’t resist!
