Fall Door Decor

I had SO MUCH MORE planned for this, but it just wasn’t in the cards for me this year.  My front porch needs a good power washing and maybe another coat of paint.  Maybe we’ll have it done in time for Christmas.  I am pretty excited about decorating for Christmas this year.  It’s my first time to time decorating a HOUSE as a home decor and craft blogger!!!  Before blogging and before we lost our home in 06 to a fire I THOUGHT I was a great decorator!!  If you could see what I came up with back then.  It’s pretty hilarious and a bit embarrassing!  Thanks to all you awesome creative bloggers out there I’m learning a few tricks! 
SO, as I said, I had much more planned for this.  I wanted a table for this basket to sit on. 

I have it inside with these two pumpkins. 

I has also planned on getting a table or hay bale to sit the pumpkins on.   I went ahead and set them outside the front door wouldn’t look so bare 

 

See Alie posing?? She’s so cute!! 
I used my Fall Rosette Wreath I made last fall, my FIRST ever!  I had planned on using my new Fall Yarn Wreath I made, but I liked it better inside. 

My front door needs some help too! 

 

I made the fall leaf garland too.  I strung it up real quick to see how it looked and my sweet Alie saw another opportunity to pose for me! 

 So, there you have it, my fall door decor.  It’s not EVERYTHING I wanted but I still love it. 
 

And there is my sweet cutie again!! 🙂
Thanks for stopping by!

My Fall Mantel

 

YAY, for crafting again!!  It’s so exciting!  I’ve really missed it and missed blogging!!  I can’t wait to show y’all how I put this together!!  I’m totally loving it!!!  
FIRST, I scored all these goodies at Michael’s with their 50% OFF SALE!!!  

Then, my wonderful sister in law Teresa, gave me a couple shutters!  And so I painted one to use for the mantel.

Then I made a bunch of felt flowers, cut up a few of those fall floral sprays and started placing everything on a grapevine wreath.  Then placed things here and there on my mantel and VIOLA!!  My new fall mantel!! 

I am in love!!! Do you love it??

Here are a few close ups of the wreath.




and the mantel….

I made this fall garland from online stencils, construction paper and twine.
close up of the mantel goodies….

I got that cute fall plant from Anna’s Linens last year or 75% off, the candle is a Paula Dean candle from my Brother and his Wife, and that adorable harvest basket is from my recent trip to Michael’s.
 Those are the FIRST fallen pine cones of the season along with some little candles I had.  Now, it’s kinda hard to see but that is the shell or skeleton of an Ocotillo Cactus from North Mountain, AZ. Mr. Wonderful had grabbed it on one of our hiking trips in AZ. 
 I LOVE this banana leaf pumpkin basket I got from Michael’s. It’s it so cute!? I think that is my sisters candle and another of the Anna’s Linens fall plants. 
 I filled the banana leaf pumpkin basket with cinnamon scented pine cones and pumpkins also from Michael’s.

So, what do y’all think??  Do you love it as much as I do!?  My hubby helped me with the decorations too.  AND he came up with a super inventive way to hang the wreath.  He cut and shaped a wire hanger into a PERFECT hanger and it’s totally invisible too!!

Thanks for stopping by!!!

My First Yarn Wreath

I’m sure y’all have noticed that I’ve been MIA.  I’ve just been SO BUSY!  So busy that I haven’t had time to blog and THUS missed out on The Nester’s Wreath Party!!!  ACK!! Right?  You have to check out all the amazing wreath’s that were linked up!  I’m totally LOVING the yarn wreaths this season.  I was inspired by these AMAZING wreaths!!

Check out Beth’s wreath and tutorial here, Emily’s here, Aimee’s here and Shannah’s here.  


I gathered up my supplies.
 I followed their tutorial’s to make my own wreath.
And then I got to work. It was SUPER easy too. Just an hour or so of wrapping while watching some DVR’d episodes of Storage Wars.  Then I made some felt flowers and cut up a fall floral spray and hot glued everything where I thought it looked best. 

 Can I toot my own horn here??  I TOTALLY LOVE IT!!!  I can’t help but smile all goofy like everytime I see it!!  I LOVE my new fall yarn wreath!!  I can’t wait to make more for all the other seasons!

My 1st Framed Wreath

 This is my first framed wreath!  I LOVE it!  I have ruined this poor frame twice and to see it there in all it’s turquoise and brown glory with a perfectly matching wreath makes me SO HAPPY!

Shall we go on the journey of this frame?

Back in November, while leaving our apartment complex the hubby spotted this by the dumpster.

 I LOVE this painting but was NOT digging that golden frame.

So, I spray painted frame dark brown.  BUT I ruined the matte!
I also, did a TERRIBLE spray painting job. 
 Upset, I put this in my closet and haven’t touched it in months.  After seeing all the bright colorful frames all you ladies are making I decided to paint the frame blue and the matte brown.

But, it just doesn’t fit with this painting, does it?   Plus the blues are off.  So, I didn’t like it.  I hung it up here just to get it out of the way while I decided what to do next.  I guest posted at the lovely Bella of Bella Before and After‘s blog about that wreath, if your interested!

Then, I noticed how great it looked with this wreath!  So, I had to cut the painting out of the matted frame.  But don’t worry, I kept it.  I love this painting.  It’s called L’Amour et Psyché, enfants, which translated means Cupid and Psyche as Children.  It’s is a William-Adolphe Bouguereau painting.  I LOVE that it’s not the full version of the painting and therefore I am going to do something with it for Alice’s room.  Any suggestions?? Seriously, I need some suggestions! 


Now, that the painting is cut out this is what it looks like!

Isn’t it great!?  I love it!!  I hung it up in our hallway.  Here are a few more shots.
LOOK!!  It’s a hallway gremlin!! 🙂

So, what do you think?  Much better as a framed wreath?  What should I do with the painting portion?

Here is a little heads up, well actually a BIG heads up!  Sarah with Thrifty Decor Chick, Kate with Centsational Girl, Rhoda with Southern Hospitality and Layla with The Lettered Cottage are teaming up again to throw us another link party series.  It’s called Home May’d!!  I had so much fun joining their Holiday Home link party series.  So get your projects ready!  I know I am ALREADY working on mine!!

Make sure you check out my CRAZY AWESOME GIVEAWAY WEEK and enter!!
