I'll be taking a break from blogging this week, but I have some super talented friends who have graciously accepted to take over my blog for the week. They all share a love for DIY and creating thrifty projects for their home. You may even notice some of these sweet girls from our monthly DIY challenges. I hope you'll take a minute to check out their blogs and don't forget to say hi!
Hi Little House of Four peeps! I'm Emily and I blog over at Table & Hearth where I share all about DIY projects, home decor, crafts, and recipes from our little home on the gulf coast of Texas. I'm super excited be be over here with you guys sharing this project for my friend Katie! We don't really have much of a fall down here unfortunately and I must admit that I don't really do much fall decorating because of it, even though it's my favorite season :( Last time I was at the beach though, I gathered a handful of fallen sea oats and had the inspiration to put together this simple swag for our front door!
There's only a handful of simple supplies needed and it couldn't be easier to put together.
- Handful of grass blooms, like wheat or oats
- Fall picks from the craft store, I used a burlap sunflower and wispy feather-ish one
- Twist tie
- Burlap wire ribbon
- Hot glue gun
I got some faux fall leaves as well (they aren't in the pic above) and glued them on top of the ribbon, then glued the burlap sunflower on top of them so it wouldn't turn. Once they were all stuck, I used my wired burlap ribbon and wrapped that around everything, tied it, then left the tails long enough to hook down on a Command hook on the back of our door. I love this way of hanging wreaths because you don't have to see a hook on the door holding it :)
That's it! Simple, quick, cheap, and something a little bit different than your traditional circle wreath!
I think it would look amazing with a handful of wheat stalks with a neutral plaid ribbon. I may just have to make one like that shortly!
Thanks again to Katie for having me over here with y'all today and I hope you love this simple little fall arrangement as much as I do :)
Here are some other projects you may like as well!
I'd love it if you stopped by the blog sometime or followed me around social media too!
