"Thanks Brenda", and "hi" to all the new bloggers I met from Welcome Wagon Friday.
Please visit Brenda, and check out her great blog.
Ok, I'll try to get calmed down and show you my new...well, sort of new... Fall wreath.
Remember this wreath I made for the Summer?
I wanted to re-use the grapevine wreath, take off the plate, and add something that looked more like Fall.
So, I took off the plate and scrubbed the welcome off with a Magic Eraser.
Since I had used a permanent marker, I wasn't sure it would come off, but the Magic Eraser did the trick.
After all that, I decided not to use the plate, but try something a little different. I left the magnolia leaves on as a base.
I rummaged through all my wreath making materials. There were sunflowers, berries and fall leaves that I've used for several years, and frankly, I was tired of them.
But, I did have faux grapes, wine corks and a few odds and ends...
and this is how it looks...
I turned the wreath sideways, and decided to use
couple of the reddish sunflowers, anyway, to brighten it.
I pulled off some of the magnolia leaves, exposing more of the grapevine, and then hot glued them to the left side of the wreath to fill in that side.
You can't really see them unless you look closely, but I used corks that came from a special wine or vineyard I like.
I don't know where this cork came from, since my son gave me a huge bag of corks that he was going to throw out. French wine? Oh, yeah. :)
My new-ish Fall wreath didn't cost a cent, since I already had everything.
I can handle that. :)
I did a couple of other updates, but I'll show you those later.
Hope you're having a great weekend.
Thanks for stopping by. I always enjoy your visits.
