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!!!
