I hope you are all having an actually fantastic week. I am, despite it being midterm week, but I really can’t wait for the weekend. The Super Bowl is happening on Sunday which means I get to see some great commercials, watch Beyonce slay us all and of course hear Gaga bless us with the National Anthem. These are all very important things in a young woman’s life. Other than the actual football playing, the Super Bowl is totally my thing.
So, through all the hectic-ness (not a word, I made it a word) of the past few weeks, I forgot to tell you guys that I have a 2nd blog! It’s primarily for my college course where we are forced to post a few times a week. I chose to make mine all about tea (obviously) and if you guys want to check it out click this: teawithemmy
I just put up a post entitled “Perfect Teas To Gift For Valentines Day” since I’m a crazy tea lady.
I have some pretty exciting posts coming up soon, so be on the lookout for those.
But, until next time,
Thank you guys for following and reading!
Since it’s FINALLY getting chilly here and starting to feel like fall, I decided to do a little DIY to welcome it properly.. right at the front door. I made a super easy wreath that features all fall colors. This is fun to make your own and use whatever flowers you like. Michael’s craft store had 50% off all their fall florals, so if you have one of those near you check it out. This really helped me get even more into the autumn spirit. OCTOBER IS TOMORROW!
What You’ll Need (I got all of this at Michael’s):
- Bouquets of Fake Fall Florals
- Wreath Form
- Hot Glue Gun + Glue
- Wreath Door Hanger
- Cut off ‘stems’ of flowers from the floral bouquet. This takes a little bit of see-sawing the scissors on the wire for a little while. I won’t say it’s the easiest thing, but don’t worry it will happen. Before attaching them permanently, arrange them on your form (the stems bend making this easy) to see how it WILL look. While doing this, make sure your hot glue gun is getting heated up.
2. This is the fun part. Time to attach all the stems! Curve all the stems to easily attach to the circle form. Apply hot glue onto form and put the stem on it and hold for a solid minute. Continue all the way around the wreath. If you run into issues with the hot glue and it’s not holding, get some floral wire that matches your wreath to wrap around the stems. I used the gold dangles on the bottom row to support mine.
3. For the top row of my form, I decided to do an almost ‘flower crown’ to create an interesting look. To do this, I ditched the hot glue. I simply wrapped the stems all the way around the form (since it’s just wire) to secure the flowers. It worked like a charm. It does take a little bit of finger power, but it’s worth it.
4. If everything is how you want it, then it’s time to hang it. Put your beautiful work on display! I lucked out with our red door which perfectly accented the colors in my wreath.
It adds so much charm and it’s not very time consuming or difficult to do!
Thanks for reading! I hope you try this out yourself.
