I have lost track of my days this week. It’s all been one big blur. I pulled out my Fall and Halloween decorations earlier this week. A week later than I had planned. Oh well. It has been spread all over the house since then. I am finally getting it all wrapped up today. Yesterday was the first day I was able to dedicate to the house, mostly. There are always other things to do. :) I spent a lot of my free time outside in the front. I am finishing the inside today. And then the cleaning starts! Ugghhh. Cleaning after pulling out holiday decorations is such a to-do. Why does it always have to make such a mess? Maybe I am just a messy decorator.
Anyway, I thought I would dedicate the rest of this week and most of next week to Fall/Halloween decor. I will share a space each day. That is the plan…but we all know that plans usually change. SO, I will post and share when I can.
Here is my front entry.
I started out by re-purposing my previous fall wreath.
Here is the wreath I’ve had for a couple of years.
And this is the same wreath this year.
Such an easy and inexpensive fix. I wanted to switch it up a bit, but still keep the same general idea. When I saw this wreath on Pinterest, I knew exactly what I was going to do.
The only thing I bought were the feathers, which is what inspired me when I saw the wreath on Pinterest. I used my Micheal’s 40% off coupon, so this new wreath cost me $2.00. I had everything else.
While I had it all pulled apart I spray painted they yellow gourds cream. It freshened it up so much. After that was done, I rearranged it all and stuck the picks back in the grapevine wreath. I added spanish moss, one of my Dollar Tree crows, our monogram and some burlap.
I cleaned out my planters and added fall color to them.
I made a glittery 31. That is my contribution to Halloween on the porch. My kids would love to carve pumpkins, but I don’t let them. Mean of me. I like to save my pumpkins and have them out through Thanksgiving.
Now I feel ready for the fall!
