It's chilly and crispy today, and it's got me thinking about Fall. All around Blogland everyone is talking Fall. Apparently even the Pottery Barn Catalogue is out with a bunch of fall ideas. (not that I get one).
So I decided to join the bandwagon and start getting ready for Fall.
I ran down to my scary storage room and pulled out my bin with "Fall Decor labelled on it". First thing I saw, was this guy.
My girls named him 'Jack' when he first showed up on our front door. I made him (well not him but the wreath itsef) about 8 or 9 years ago. I was sooo excited to have made him that I put him on door too early cause I opened the door one day to have my neighbour standing there with him in her hands saying "He's cute, but I can't you bring on the Fall yet. You have to wait until at least Sept 15th!" We had a good laugh and I stored Jack for a little while longer.
So I took the whole thing apart and was left with this...
Then I took a bunch of Chrysanthemums that I also found in "Fall Decor" bin and cut them all up.
(No other plant says "fall" like chrysanthemum flowers.)
I'm not sure where these flowers came from cayse I don't remember buying them.
Then I hot glued them to the wreath and added ribbon.
I think I need more flowers. What do you think?
This cost me nothing cause I used stuff I had on hand.
Are you on the Fall Bandwagon yet?
I'm linking up to Thrifty Decor Chick's Fall Inspiration party.
And linking to some of these parties.
And yes... I'm waiting until at least Sept 15th put it up as not to upset the neighbour. :-)
