Autumn Wreath & Printable Tags

Decorating with wreaths is a wonderful way to welcome guests into your home.  It’s also a great way to show off the beauty of the season or to announce a special occasion.

Today I will be sharing two autumn wreath ideas with you.  This came about  from a recent cleaning and gathering of old wire hangers that found their way into the different parts of my house.  I noticed the color variations on some of the hangers, almost copper-like.  I took one of the hangers apart and bent the wire into a circle then twisted the two ends around each other to make a wreath form.  It was sturdy and it held the shape well when branches were added.  The copper/gold tone on the wire also blended nicely with the branches.  This simple wreath became the inspiration for the autumn wreath drawing {above}.

The change in season has begun . . . . . Welcome Autumn!

I’ve been busy wrapping up the last bit of summer to do list:
1.  drain, clean, and dismantle the kid’s pool
2.  clear the garage of leftover items from our garage sale
3.  finish up the last of bit of painting in the house
{white, off white, bright white, oyster white, and pure white}
4.  put together Caleb’s 10th birthday party, just a bit late …over a month late -ooops
