Hey guys!  Whitney here…

I wanted to first say a big thank you to those of you that left prayers and sweet messages on our facebook page last week.  For those of you that don’t know, I was put in the hospital last week with low amniotic fluid.  I am 32 weeks pregnant and it came as quite a surprise.  The baby looked super healthy and happy on the monitor after a couple days, so I was sent home to take it easy and make sure I feel him kicking.  My family was a huge help in taking care of the other kids during this time.  I am so thankful to them.  I am also thankful for you guys.  Your messages were awesome.

Long story short…  I probably won’t be building any new furniture pieces in the next 6 weeks, but my hot glue gun will be seeing lots of action 😉

That leads me to my next project!  I started this before I went to the hospital and finally got the darn thing finished… Yeah!

My front door needed a new Fall wreath.

Here are my supplies…

3 fake pumpkin stems… I found mine at Hobby Lobby for around $1 a piece

Wood Monogram – Hobby Lobby for $1

Grapevine wreath – Hobby Lobby for $3

Burlap cut into 2″ strips – I bought 1/4 yard at Hobby Lobby for under $2.

You will also need some cream colored spray paint.

I started by pulling apart my pumpkins.  I took the stems off the top and pulled the sticks out of the bottoms.

I took the pumpkins and the “G” into the garage and gave them a good coat of cream spray paint.  While they were drying I got started on my rosettes!

I have done a few rosette tutorials, but in case you don’t feel like searching here is a refresher.

I fold my strip into 2 folds and hot glue the end to a piece of felt.

Now I just roll my strip towards the outside as I am gluing it down.  This is not very technical I know, but that’s the best way I can describe it.  It’s super easy. 🙂

At the end you will have a little tail of fabric like this.  I cut the rosette out and hot glue the tail to the back of the felt.  That’s it!  Super easy.

Once I finished all my flowers I started hot glueing it all together.  I just glued each flower and then the pumpkins to the bottom.  I also glued the pumpkins together so they would stick well.  Finally, I added the monogram and just glued it to whatever it was touching… Love me some hot glue.

I used some thick twine to hang it from my door.  Want to see it all finished??

Hope you like it!  My old wreath was looking a bit sad, so this brightens things up a bit.  Thank you so much again for everything!  I appreciate you guys 🙂  Have a great week!!!
