Today on my blog I wanted to show you how to diy a fall wreath for around 10 dollars.
I actually wasn’t planning on making a fall wreath when I went to the dollar store. I was only going to find buckets to organize my kids toys. Then I saw the Halloween and fall stuff they put out already and got super excited! Is anyone else ready for fall? I don’t think we have much of a fall here in Vegas but at least I can decorate my house right. I am looking forward to decorating for Halloween since Amelia is already asking when it is and telling me what she wants to be. Anyways backs to the diy..
Things you’ll need
– sign (optional)
– glue gun
– string (to hang)
– burlap ribbon
– metal wreath
I had grabbed some flowers, the metal wreath and burlap ribbon. The sign I got wasn’t going to be part of it but once I got home I realized 2 things. 1 I didn’t know where to put the sign since it’s kinda small. 2 I didn’t buy enough flowers. I loved the sayings on the sign and still wanted to use it.
I used my glue gun to glue the metal wreath to the sign. Then I took my burlap ribbon and wrapped it around the areas that where showing. If your wondering why I didn’t just wrap the wreath before glueing the sign it’s because I wanted the sign to be sturdy.
I took out all the flower off the stem. Be careful with some they usually come out easy but some of them didn’t. I cut the plastic behind them don’t cut it too short or the flower will fall apart. Then I just started glueing all the flowers to the burlap ( I forgot to take a picture of this process). I ended up adding the bow at the end with left over ribbon. I took some string I had and tired it to the window.
There you have it a nice fall wreath for less then $10. Btw this is my 1st time making one can you tell I totally winged it. Hahaha
Hopefully you guys like this diy fall wreath and try it out!
Things your going to need.
• Painter Tape ( a couple rolls)
• Sample Paint
• Roller of paint brush
• Gold Paint (optional) you can paint the color your want before adding the shapes
We decided to move Amelia rooms to our old guest room and put Nolan in her old room. I kind of just threw all her stuff in there and called it a day. I told myself that one day I would paint it and make it nice. Well months later I finally did.
I got the idea from YouTube. I remembered buying a bunch of paint samples from Lowes ( sometimes they have them on sale for 99cents). I had paint left over from other projects as well. I headed upstairs. No idea what I was going to do. Absolutely didn’t have any high expectations. I even texted my husband saying ” well if it comes out ugly I can just paint over it”.
So I started taping the wall. Creating triangles and different shapes. I measured some of them. I did make sure all my straight lines were leveled. You can say I basically winged it.
Then came the painting. This is were I wish I would’ve taken my time and seen what color was going to go where instead I took each color and choose a shape to paint. Again winging it. I think it worked out in the end.
I got this crazy idea that I wanted the tape lines gold. At first I was hoping I could find gold tape but then I found gold paint at Hobby Lobby. This was the hardest part! Painting the rest of the room with two kids while hubby was at work was easier then painting lines.
I had to tape inside every shape to have this clean lines. I used a craft knife and scissors to make sure the tape wasn’t covering the old tape lines.
Finally took my small artist brush and started painting. It took about 3 – 4 coats of gold to cover the green. The Hobby Lobby I went to only had 1 can left of paint but I wish I could’ve gotten 2 to use a small paint roller instead of the brush. I do have some touch up I need to do from the tape ripping the paint off.
In the end I absolutely love how it came out. The color combination is so girly and I totally wish it was my office ( currently writing this in her room because I love it that much).
Stay tune for other DIYS I have plan for her room and just in general. My mind is always coming up with crazy ideas ( my poor husband hates me..kidding) to change and add things to my house.
