Scarecrow for Fall

This sweet Scarecrow for Fall is a warm inviting greeter for your front door.

I just love this scarecrow.  While it can only be used on covered exterior doors, it can also be used for interior doors and mantles.  Yarn wreaths are some of my favorites.  They are fluffy and warm and provide great texture for your space.  These wreaths are a great way to get kids involved in creating holiday decorations.  My littlest one has helped with wrapping yarn around the form.  The older kids can help with some of the gluing, adding zip ties and tying on the twine for a hanger.

Snowman Wreath

snowman wreath velvet

This Snowman wreath makes such a statement on your front door for winter!

Who doesn’t want to snuggle up in a fluffy mound of yarn in the winter.  I love to crochet blankets and have them all over the house in the colder months. While you cannot exactly snuggle this adorable wreath, you can certainly get the warm, inviting look that yarn provides with this simple wreath project.

Making these snowman wreaths can be a family affair.  With the ease of assembly, this is a good project for your littles to help create.  The littles can wrap yarn around the wreath forms and can even cut out the hats and ribbon.  With a little help, they may even be able to secure the zip ties or glue the hat on.

When displaying this wreath, you want to make sure your door is covered and the wreath will not be in the elements.  However, this also looks adorable on an interior door, which is how I often display mine.  If you have a mantle in need of something tall, this is also a great addition.

Supplies

  • Foam wreath forms in two sizes
  • White loop yarn-I used two skeins
  • Stiff felt square in black or desired color
  • Greens of your choosing
  • Ribbon (wired) of your choosing
  • Zip ties (large enough to go around both wreath forms or two that you can put together)
  • Hole punch/scissors
  • Hot glue gun and glue sticks


Directions

  • Attach wreath forms together using zip ties to make head and body of the snowman
  • Wrap loop yarn around both wreath forms until the snowman is completely covered (glue beginning end to the foam wreath and tie the other end to other loops on the form)
  • Cut out a hat from the stiff felt
  • Punch or cut holes in the hat where the ribbon will be placed above the brim
  • Use a zip tie to attach the hat to the top wreath form through the holes just punched
  • Hot glue a piece of ribbon to the hat on the snowman above the brim, covering the zip ties used previously
  • Glue greens to the ribbon on the hat
  • Tie a piece of ribbon around the neck of the snowman and drape it how you would like the snowman to look

Enjoy your adorable masterpiece!

DIY Blue Beaded Wreath

 DIY Blue Beaded Wreath

 

This DIY Blue Beaded Wreath is a fun DIY wreath that incorporates aqua blue and orange in a sweet and delicate way.  Aqua blue is my favorite color and appears throughout my whole house.  I love pairing it with different colors for different seasons and holidays.  For Summer and Fall, I like to pair aqua blue with orange.  While the flowers are summer flowers, I can see this used as a daily door wreath throughout the year or on a mantle as a pop of color in a room.

Hello Sunflowers!

Hello Sunflowers!

 

I love this door sign that just screams Hello Sunflowers!  One of my favorite things to do with my family in summer is to visit a sunflower field near us.  Being surrounded by beautiful yellow flowers, taller than we are, lends a bit of majesty to summer.  This door sign is a great way to bring a little of that summer goodness home.

 

Hello Sunflowers Supplies

  • Wood round (I used an 18 inch round-12 inch or above would work well)
  • Polyurethane stain (this is Minwax English Chestnut 233)
  • Hot glue and hot glue gun
  • Sunflower and daisy artificial flower stems (I bought these at Hobby Lobby)
  • Burlap ribbon and wired ribbon
  • Tin word of choice (I found this “hello” at Hobby Lobby)
  • Foam brush
  • Shop towel or paper towels

 

 


 

Directions

  • Apply stain to the wood round and let it dry (use sponge brush to apply and wipe off the excess with a shop towel or paper towels)
  • A second round can be glued to the back of the first for stability (optional)
  • Glue flowers in desired position to the wood round
  • Create a bow with the burlap and wired ribbons and glue to the wood round
  • Add a piece of ribbon to the back to use as a hanger-glue the ribbon to the back of the round

 

Creating a simple bow:

  • Measure out two strips of burlap ribbon for a base for the bow
  • Cut strips of ribbon as long as the burlap ribbon strips and layer on top of the burlap ribbon
  • Gather the ribbons in the center
  • Tie a piece of ribbon around the center of the bow

Beaded Floral Wreath

Beaded Floral Wreath

Beaded wreaths are so sweet and versatile.  I love that I can use this on my door, mantle or wall.  While I love fluffy green wreaths and yarn wreaths, beaded wreaths are a smaller statement with a bit more elegance.  I love this Beaded Floral Wreath.  The pink and cream colors are classic and lend to spring or summer decor.

 

Supplies:

  • Ring wreath form
  • Wooden beads
  • Twine
  • Pink flowers
  • Burlap wired ribbon
  • Pink ribbon or ribbon of choice
  • Floral wire
  • Berry ribbon garland (I found this at Hobby Lobby)
  • Hot glue gun with glue sticks
  • Metal word (Blessed-found at Hobby Lobby)
  • 20 gauge wire (optional)
  • Fishing line (optional-I used Trilene)

 


 

Directions

  • Find place where the floral ring form was sealed together.  Gently bend the ring back and forth until the ring breaks open.
  • Add wooden beads to the floral ring until it is full.
  • Close the ring wreath form with wire and hot glue
  • If desired, add a piece of twine to the top of the ring wreath form to use as a hanger for the wreath.
  • Use berry ribbon garland and wind it around the beads as tightly or loosely as desired until the wreath is completely entwined.
  • Glue or use floral wire to attach the flowers to the wreath form.
  • Create a bow using the burlap and pink ribbons. For this bow, I cut equal lengths of burlap and pink ribbons.  I glued the pink ribbon on top of the burlap ribbon.  Then, I tied the pieces together with twine to make a bow.  Attach the bow to the ring wreath form with twine, hot glue or wire.
  • Using fishing line, cut pieces to tie up the ends of the metal word chosen and tie the pieces to the ring wreath form.
