Last Spring, a good friend here in FL asked me to make some holiday decorations for her home. It was right around Valentine's Day (wow - guess it was last WINTER, then?) so I was able to make her some garland, a wreath and a bunch of other great things. Soon after, I did some Easter decorations (another wreath, candy containers, etc.) and then a HUGE space of time went by.... summer and not many holidays but now with Fall I was able to make her a few more items.
She's hosting a baby shower brunch next weekend for some lovely ladies and wanted some more autumnal items to dress up her home. I was able to put together a really gorgeous golden yellow yarn wreath similair to one she'd found on Pinterest as well as some book pumpkins.
Here's a look at how they turned out:
|The inspiration behind the wreath was initially spotted in this cute Etsy shop:thechicadeeshop|
|next up, book pumpkins! I purchased these books for a $1 a piece at the Dollar Store and then added some green ribbon. I told my friend to maybe swap out the green for orange - for some reason they're reminding more of apples! ;)|
It was such a huge compliment for my friend to like how my home was decorated enough to ask me to make some items for her. :)
Have you done any DIY Fall decorating this year?
