A couple of months ago I found two fall wreaths at a yard sale for $2 each. The only problem was they were...well, not so attractive. But as they say, they had good bones. Since my daughter is coming down for Thanksgiving, I want the front porch to look welcoming and festive so I took my cheapy wreaths and looked around in my stash and spruced them up a bit. We have double entry doors so the pair will work out great.
The next photo is what I started with. The fake berries were faded and turned to pink. Some of the foliage just looked like dead weeds after years of use. So I snipped off all the uglies, and dug out a couple of fall garlands I had used at the shop in past years and started snipping and tucking.
I still needed a little more filler so I found some dried pods that had not been used in the project I purchased them for and I also had these gorgeous feathers. I snipped off the long stems, tucked here and tucked there and now I have something much more welcoming for the entry.
Thanks for visiting. I love it when you drop in.
