2013 Fall Decorations

I wanted to share my Fall decorations.  I usually don't decorate to Fall but after making the wreath I had to add to it to make the room complete.  I didn't want to add too much but spots of Fall around this room only. I had some large pumpkins that a dear niece made, I just added some Fall leaf garland, flowers, a few scarecrows and lots of loose leaves.  I really like how is all came together.  I will keep it this way until after Thanksgiving then I will start my Christmas decorations.  

Most of my decorations I either found on sale or at a great price.  This basket I found at a store called Ollies.  It was a little deep so I added dark colored plastic bags in the bottom before adding the leaves.  I added a candle to the center (a gift from another niece) plus some plastic accents.

The two little scarecrows I found at the dollar stores, the candle is from Joanns with a leaf garland from the Dollar Tree.  The big basket I already had with greenery in it, I just removed it and added two large bunches of Fall sprays from Joanns.  This is very easy to change out for every season.

Deco Mesh Ribbon Wreaths

I just wanted to share with you how I made my fall wreath.  I first saw the wreath on a fellow youtuber's channel (Sonia De Jesus), she made them for Halloween.  Since I don't decorate for Halloween  anymore, when I saw her's I had to make one and I couldn't wait for Christmas to make one.  So I made a Fall one.  For both wreaths I used a 14" wired ring from Pat Catans.

This one is made using the Decorative Mesh from SimpleStyle from Walmarts.  It is 10" wide and 10' long, I think I used about 8 1/2 '.  I decorated it with some 3" ribbon mesh and the scarecrow from a local store called Marcs, the flowers are from the Dollar Tree.  The leaves and pumpkins are from Family Dollar.

This one is made using a 21" wide stripped Fall Deco Mesh Ribbon from Hobby Lobby.  The leaves are from the Dollar Tree. The ribbon and pumpkins are from Joanns.  I made this one for one of my sisters and I wanted to leave room for her to add her own personal touch.

I show in this video how to put the wreath together.  It is very easy to make.  The hardest part was how to decorate it.

2013 Easy Christmas Cards #3

This is the third (3rd) card in my mini "2013 Easy Christmas Card" series.  This card is made using the card base ( 5 1/2 x 8 1/2 piece of card stock), a chipboard sticker, some scrapbook paper, and two punches ( 1- hole punch, 1-holly leaf punch).  I also added a few rhinestones and some Stickles to the holly berries.  I'm trying to make these cards simple with the least amount of tools but to make them not look that way.  These are all basic cards that can be dressed up with what ever you like to make them your own.  So have fun with them.
