My friend Ashley and I spent the day together on Saturday, first visiting my family and then hanging out with her wonderful aunt. Ashley's Aunt Peggy is incredible... her crafting skills and space are amazing. I'll give you a tour of her craft room later this week, but for now, look what we made!!
Steps for Making an Incredible Fall Wreath
Gather some supplies, like these. Check places like Biglots and buy things that are crazy cheap. Find a wreath in Aunt Peggy's magical craft closet.
Find someone you like to hang out with. Bonus points if, while actually trying to demonstrate how cute the tiny pumpkin is, your crafting partner looks like she's constipated.
Take your decor items and start placing them where you want them, like so. Try to look like you know what you're doing and you're "artsy" and stuff so you can impress your crafting partner.
Go faster than your crafting friend, and then take a picture of her in action.
Then, make her take a break to take a picture of you, so that you can prove to your blogging friends that you were, in fact, also there crafting.
Get out the hot glue gun and starting attaching all of the pieces you laid out. Be really careful so that you don't accidentally move something. Then, screw up and move something. Look at Aunt Peggy, and hear her say, "There's no such thing as mistakes when you're crafting. It's just a different kind of beautiful." Want to kiss Aunt Peggy for being so adorable.
Love Aunt Peggy even more when she brings this upstairs, just in case you burn your finger while you're glue gunning.
Bring your finished wreath home and try to hang it on the front door. Realize that the top half of your door is made of glass. Take a second to wonder why the heck you didn't realize this before. Set the wreath down on a living room chair until you can get a wreath hook tomorrow. Come downstairs the next morning and see this.
Gently grab the cat and throw her across the room. Hang the wreath on your front door and go outside and take pictures of your house. Wave to your neighbors, who clearly think you're creepy.
There you have it! Happy fall-ing, everyone!
