The Modern Wreath

One of the newest trends that I have been keeping my eye on is the modern wreath. So here is my first attempt at a cheap, but chic modern wreath.

The Modern Wreath

This wreath cost me about $25 to make. All of the supplies came from Hobby Lobby. Of course you have to buy each item when it is on sale to get a good price – so it may take you two weeks and separate shopping trips to get all of your supplies on sale.

I used gold jewelry wire and gold spray paint that I had at home from previous crafts. The only other supplies you need is a steel ring (approx. $4) to form your wreath and your choice of flowers!

This is a great and easy DIY to make that will brighten up the look of the inside or the outside of you house!

Fall is in the Air

With the change in the weather (its been about 70 degrees and breezy during the day, 50 degrees at night here in Ohio) and the leaves beginning to change color, my fall senses have been tingling. Naturally, I made my way over to Hobby Lobby to craft and welcome in the season! Now i know some of you are probably saying we still have several weeks to go of summer, but that can’t stop my love of fall!

One of my favorite crafts are wreaths. I love a good homemade wreath because it can to really spice up the entrance into your house.

My favorite thing about fall is white pumpkins, hence our wedding, which was white pumpkin themed! So I decided to incorporate white pumpkins into my wreath this year, along with white sunflowers to keep the theme rolling. To add a pop of color and sparkle, I threw in some burgundy and orange leaves with a few acorns and pinecones.

Finally, on each and every wreath that I make, I always put our metal S on it. This was the first item that I had purchased for both Austin and I and I that had to do with our last name. I absolutely love that it always sits on the front door, welcoming everyone to our house.
