Fall is in the air......

Fall was in the air on Friday so I decided to spruce up my worn out wreath that has been hanging above my door for about 8 years.  It only gets changed out at Christmas... Poor Poor Wreath.  I wish I would have taken a before picture but honestly I'm too embarrassed.  


I cleaned the dust off a 36 inch grapevine wreath and made a sunflower bow.  (I used my floral design skills that were pretty rusty) and wired/hot glued it to the bottom.


Since all of the stores are covered in Fall right now I found one bunch of all of my favorite colors and flowers for $5.00.



Then the hot gluing began.  I usually wire the larger flowers to the wreath but was being pretty lazy today; so hot glue it is........


I start out on side and move up the wreath and then move on to the other side.  Always make sure you use the 1, 3 or 5 ratio.  You always want an odd number of each flower to balance your design.



Tada!!!  All finished...Now time to plant- It's never ending around here.........
