My front door was in desperate need of an Autumn spruce up. But my pocket book put the nix on purchasing a new Autumn wreath. So what's a gal with Frugal OCD* to do?
*Obsessively Consumed with Decorating.
Enter this old Christmas wreath, which was looking a little worse for the wear. Some of the berries had lost their red coating and were left as just little white styrofoam balls. Some of the "branches" were loose and threatening to drop off. But I looked at the wreath, and I saw possibilities...Autumn possibilities.
I searched through my stash of Autumn decor and found a bag of fake fall leaves that I purchased at the Dollar store last year. I grabbed my trusty glue gun and went to work.
I pulled off the berries that were now nothing but white styrofoam. I secured the loose branches. And then I just added in the fake leaves. I started with the largest leaves, gluing them into the largest empty spots on the wreath (making sure that they were all tilted the same direction.) After that, I added in the medium size leaves and finished it up with the smallest leaves. And that's all I did. But I was pleasantly surprised.
Now my sad Christmas wreath has a new lease on life, as an Autumn beauty. And my front door is thanking me!
Have a great weekend~
