Hi everyone! Yesterday I shared a Christmas wreath project, but today I’m going backwards to show you a quick (and likely final) fall project. A couple of days ago, I had a chance to pop into Michael’s and they had an 80% off section, which I, of course, immediately went over to. I saw that they had really nice artificial mums on sale.
My fall wreath I’ve been hanging for about ten years has served us well, but has grown quite faded and raggedy. The time had come to replace it.
Michael’s offered these multi-colored mums for $3 each–80% off of $15.
Just a couple of weeks ago, I bought this grapevine wreath at a garage sale for a dollar.
The flower heads easily popped off the stems, and I cut the leaves into individual pieces, thinking I might use them, but I didn’t. I’ll save them for another project.
I laid the mums out in a couple of different ways. First I kind of zig-zagged them, but kept them pretty close together, then I placed them single file, like you see here.
I had the burlap ribbon on hand. I think I paid $3 for the roll and I’ve made two bows out of it. So for $8.50 I have a brand new fall wreath that I’m pretty strongly in like with.
What do you think?
