Diy Fall Wreath

Diy fall wreath

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
– flowers
– sign (optional)
– glue gun
– string (to hang)
– burlap ribbon
– metal wreath
– scissors

 

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 just used my glue gun to glue the ribbon.

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!

How to paint a Geometric accent wall

How to paint a geometric accent wall

Things your going to need.
• Painter Tape ( a couple rolls)
• Scissors
• Sample Paint
• Roller of paint brush
• Gold Paint (optional) you can paint the color your want before adding the shapes
• Level
• Ruler
• PATIENCE

 

 

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.

Don’t forget to use a coupon at Hobby Lobby

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.
