A Fall Quickie


A quick, simple and frugal fall wreath for my front door.
I was on furlough days from work last Thursday and Friday.  Rainy on Thursday, so I hit a new found junk store and the Goodwill.  Came home with some items I will be sharing soon.  On Friday, my niece, her fiance and my teen daughter helped clean up the 'jungle' that once was my porch.  We cut down most of the shrubs, a small tree and trimmed back the remaining shrubbery.   Looks MUCH better!  I can see my itty bitty not really a porch.  I decided my front door needed a little something something.

A trip to Hobby Lobby and I now have a fall wreath.

Vine wreath - Hobby Lobby, 50% off - $2
Berry sprigs(2) - Hobby Lobby, 50% off - $3
Leaf garland - Dollar Tree - $1 (had at home)
Pine cones - FREE (thank you Tracey!)
Misc. Ribbon

Warmed up the glue gun, stuck on the items, looped the ribbon and hung my new $6 Fall wreath.

Myself and teen missy are feeling a bit under the weather today.  Sure hope we are NOT getting sick!
