I made this material garland on Monday for this mantel. So, so easy to do and I think it may have cost me about $5.00.
I also made a wreath for the front door!! At one time, I so enjoyed making my own wreaths, but haven't done so in a while. It just gets to me when I see the cost that can go into making one of these things.
Isn't it something how stores mark things 40% off and the price of a bundle of flowers is still way more than it should be?
I dug around until I found some flowers that where marked way down and the ribbon was actually a very good buy.
I made the wreath yesterday and I am pleased with how it turned out......
YOU SEE........ As of this very week, I have now committed myself to "The Christmas Tour of Homes."
Oh my.....what have I done????
What I have done is to let others persuade me into being a part of this event. Don't get me wrong......I want to help when it comes to Community events, and the money goes to a very good cause.....BUT, it is a lot of hard work and the date is set for early in December.
All of this means that I need to skip my usual Fall decorating (Love to decorate BIG for Fall) and I need to already be decorating for the Tour of Homes!!!
Don't you all want to lend a hand to your blog friend? Come on down and help me make this an easy task!!!!
I'm not much for fancy decorating......I like the natural look and I love, love, love.....Country decorating!!
It might just be a quick "Pumpkin Stay" around this place.
Hugs sweet friends...
