Wreath Quick Change

I have several wreaths that I call  "my go to  wreaths".  Fall will be here soon and I wanted a new wreath, but I didn't want to spend a lot of money.  So...I'm going to do a quick change on one of my favorite neutral  wreaths.
You have seen this wreath many times before...but today I'm going to add some fall to it!   The frame on this wreath is a styrofoam heart, so I will be able to add some fall flowers with straight pins.

  I don't want to use hot glue because this will be a temporary change.

I bought these burlap roses at HL the other day (50% off of course)  First, I "plucked" the rose from the big stem that it comes on.  Save the stem because you can easily glue the rose back on for another project.




See how easily it is pinned to the styrofoam 


I placed the burlap roses pretty much an equal distance apart....whatever is eye pleasing to you.

Then, I pinned some smaller pink plaid fabric roses near the burlap ones.   I'm lovin' plaid for fall decorating.
I had one large pink rose that I added to the bottom....   I also added a few small pieces of burlap...,  .

and a couple (or four ..lol)  long stick pins that I had decorated.   I  made all the flowers on the wreath except for the 3 burlap ones.  Fabric flowers are easy to make and there are lots of great tutorials on the internet.



As you may have already suspected,  I am working on my fall mantle today!  I still had my mantle decorated for spring...skipped right over summer!

  5. I love this heart wreath. It's gorgeous all in white, but when you add the burlap and other colors for fall it just pops!!! Great and thrifty change. Thanks for sharing at TTF this week.

  6. Beautiful! Love the burlap and pink flowers on this already beautiful wreath. As Magnolia Pearl says, "It's okay to layer beauty on top of more beauty". And it looks great in your lovely kitchen!! Catherine

  8. Still hot here Penny. But I certainly feel a bit of Fall in the air in the mornings. I will hold off until Sept. to start pulling out my Fall décor, but must admit I'm getting anxious. The wreath turned out really cute. Love it by the owl and pumpkins. I bought that same rose for a project I just posted about. Don't we have good taste? lol! Thanks for sharing with SYC.
    hugs,
