Fall Harvest Decor on a Budget Part 1 - Wreath

So excited that the fall season is finally approaching and that means rich colors, cooler weather and pumpkins spice lattes – Yeah!  It’s also a chance for me to try out some fun harvest home décor projects.  In fact, there were so many that I felt it was too much to write about in just one post, so be sure to check out my other posts Fall Harvest Décor on a Budget Part 2 - Kitchen and Fall Harvest Décor on a BudgetPart 3 – Garden



The first thing I did was drag out my bin of fall décor items from the attic which is always fun because I usually ­forget what I put in there the year before.  J



I had some candles, a wreath, a leaf garland and some kitchen linens (basically a hot mess) all of which were fine (ok not really) but I decided they all (desperately) needed some updating and/or repurposing – or some shushing as some might say.

For the wreath, the one I had in my bin was purchased from a discount store last year but after a recent trip to Michael's, I decided I could do much better but for a lot less money than they charge for their custom made wreaths; which start at around $50.

So I purchased a cute chevron burlap bow and a couple of floral pics for under $10 (with coupons of course).



I basically pulled some leaves off my old fall wreath; repurposed a larger grapevine wreath I had packed away from spring; arranged the floral pics and added the bow for a finishing touch. 

No glue necessary – I simply wrapped the wired ends of the pics through the wreath and they stay nice and put.  This way I can easily change it for next year.



I’m pretty happy with the way it turned out and for around $10, I created a Michael's inspired wreath that I'm proud to hang on my door.

How about turning some dollar store kitchen linens from drab to fab...you can read more about in Part 2 of my Fall Harvest Décor on a Budget series.
