Fall Wreath

Happy Monday!  We have had a great morning here.  My daughter's friend got her a build a bear gc for her Birthday and we just got back from getting it.  We all went to Build a Bear, had lunch and now the girls are playing with their bears.  What a wonderful gift!

I put together our fall wreath for the front door last week.  I didn't want to have to spend any money on this one but I ended up shelling out $4.00 for the ribbon.  Not bad at all.  Here is the wreath on our door.

Here is what I did to make the wreath.

I cut strips from an old t-shirt to use for the flowers.

I used a packet of orange kool-aid to dye the t-shirt strips.  Yep that's right!  I had it on hand and thought why not try it.  It worked pretty well.  I would have liked the color to be a little darker, but maybe next time I could just use two packets.  Oh, and no need to add sugar!  What is kinda funny is that, we really don't drink kool-aid.  I bought several packs long ago and am really happy I could find a use for them. 

I wrapped half the wreath with twine and then made my flowers from the t-shirt strips.  I used small black pins to keep them on.

Here is my $4.00 ribbon from Hobby Lobby.  Not too impressed with my bow but that's okay.  I love the pattern!

There you have it!  My mom told me to finish the wreath and go all around with twine.  I like the half and half but maybe for later in the season I will change it up with more twine and some pumpkins.

Have a great day everyone!
