As I mentioned yesterday in my FALL FASHION post- since I don’t have many early fall colors happening naturally around me, I like to infuse fall colors into not only my wardrobe but in my home as well. I believe this all starts from the front porch. I think people should get a sense of who we are & what they can expect when they walk in from the moment they knock on the door. This is why I always have a wreath or some other decorative piece on the door. It’s a great way to express myself without saying anything. For this time of the year I created this faded sunflower wreath. I think it’s perfect for this time of the season (late September-early October) where the flowers are fading & withering off & the colors are taking on a more burnt hue.
Only parts of the dried grapevine show – but just enough to keep the textures noticeable. I also added this vine of beads to add a bit of sparkle.
The pop of bright burnt orange ribbon makes me happy. It has just enough golden sheen in it to really perk up the porch.
This was super easy with my glue gun & a little bit of time to just get in my zone. The finished product just makes me smile.
Plus it stands up well to the dry, dusty, windy conditions & even spruces up well with a quick rinse of the hose. (a must for desert living)
I love it when a project comes together & just makes me smile every time I look at it.
Don’t forget to come back & join me on Mondays for Project 52
