I am always late getting a seasonally appropriate wreath made for the front door. This year is no exception. With less than a week to go before Thanksgiving, it may seem useless to even make one. However, I couldn't pass up an 80% off sale of all autumn florals at Hobby Lobby! I unpinned the cloth flowers off my basic wreath that is made from a foam circle and burlap to get it ready for a new look.
While I was at HL, I couldn't pass up this awesome purple hot glue gun!
I needed a new one anyway :)
I snipped apart some of the floral spray pieces to make it easier to handle and attach to the wreath.
I'm quite fond of mums and sunflowers.
And I loved the acorns and apple in this particular spray.
Even though these beautiful flowers are silk, they still bring a smile to my face.
Sunflowers and Mums breath warmth and hospitality!
I tried to follow pretty closely the way they were pre-arranged on the spray when I glued them down. I think I need a few more leaves around the bottom but overall I am quite satisfied.
Floral arranging of any kind is not my forte'. My daughter, on the other hand, is very good at making wreaths. Maybe I will showcase some of her work in December.
Do you make your own wreaths or buy them ready-made?
Have a blessed day in the Lord!
