Fall Wreath and Mantle 2013

Yesterday I made my Fall wreath and decorated my mantle. I really push it when it comes to this stuff because I love cooler weather so much. I just want to say that this has really played with my kids heads and they continually (and I mean every 5 seconds) ask me when Halloween is. That was Carson's first question when he woke up this morning. Ah the burden of having a Mom who decorates too early! But I wanted to get maximum mileage out of this ensemble that will be up through Thanksgiving. I found out the key to saving money on this project is 1)recycling what you have and 2)remembering where you put the decorations from last year. This whole project cost me around  $13 because of those 2 things. Oh and because Hobby Lobby has 40% off all Fall decorations. Which will probably end soon as they move onto Christmas. And I think that I decorate too early? That place is insane! And I'm so glad they are:)

The wreath is made up of a wire wreath with fall garland wrapped around. The great thing about this wreath is that is has bendable wires on it so you can attach anything you want with out glue. I'm definitely going to recycle it for Christmas. I also bought a little glittery sunflower add on and popped it right in there.

My new candle from Bath and Body works. This is the best candle I have ever owned. I highly recommend it!

Decorations from last year. The only thing new is the Burlap ribbon. I like it simple and natural:)

I wrapped my summer wreath with burlap ribbon and used some flowers from a bouquet that I've had for 6 years. I cut some left over khaki fabric into a ribbon to hang the wreath and voila!

God has said, "Never will I leave you, never will I forsake you." So we say with confidence, "The Lord is my helper. I will not be afraid. What can man do to me?" Hebrews 13:5-6
