DIY Asymmetrical Autumn Wreath

Even though I am not decorating for Autumn yet, I sure am crafting up some fun fall things! One of which, this super inexpensive and easy to make fall wreath! All you need is some empty soda cans, wire, a steel hoop (I got this one from hobby lobby), some real or faux acorns, faux leaves for your pattern, and a can of Rust-Oleum gold spray paint. I have tried almost every gold spray paint out there, and trust me when I say, you can’t go wrong with Rust-Oleum metallic finish gold spray paint!First, you’ll want to cut the tops and bottoms off of your empty cans. They cut pretty easily, I just used normal scissors. Then gently pull the cans back and forth over the edge of a table or something to smooth and flatten them. Be careful not to bend them though!Now trace….Once you have the leaves cut out, use a dull object to make the leaf veining. I used a mechanical pencil, without any lead. It’s best to do this on a soft surface, such as a note book, magazine, or pad of paper, something that will allow the indention from the pencil to be made.

With a quilting needle, small nail, or other small sharp object, make a hole at the top of the leaf.

Spray the leaves and acorns with a coat of gold spray paint, before attaching them to the wreath, just to ensure that every angle of the leaves and acorns are covered.Attach the wire, simply by wrapping it around the hoop a few times, and begin attaching the acorns and leaves. I started in the middle and worked my way out.After the leaves and acorns were attached, I took the wreath outside for another coat of gold spray paint.And easy as that, you have yourself a new fall wreath!!

Favorite things Thursday ~ Fresh Flowers

Anyone who knows me, knows that I love to have fresh flowers or greenery in my house, always and always! It wasn’t until a couple years ago that I started using fresh flowers as part of my decor. I always thought it was just too expensive to buy fresh flowers every week. Well, let me tell you…it really isn’t as expensive as you might think.

This week I made four small arrangements, for just $11! Most all the flowers here are store bought, with the exception of a few little snippets from my garden.

The best piece of advice that I have to offer, find out when your local grocery stores mark their flowers down. The grocery store here (Kroger), marks down every Sunday. Almost every flower is hugely discounted, and most of the flowers are still really fresh! This week I got a big bouquet of 18 roses, and 5 hydrangeas for just $6.99! And the rest of the flowers, were just $.99 each bundle.

If you’re like me, and like your arrangements to feel a little wild and free…go out to your yard and find a few little whimsy pieces of plants or flowers to add to your arrangements. If you don’t have a flower garden, just look around, you’ll be surprised how much beauty is growing wild…even some so called “weeds” offer beauty and appeal to an arrangement.
