Confession.....I have yet to make a single fall decoration...yet! When I get the inspiration, I am sure I'll be crafting like a lunatic, but I'm just a tad bit overwhelmed with putting my basement back together. Do you ever notice how if one area of your house is out-of-order, it just spills into all the other areas?? (and....it can make one a little grumpy??)
So I didn't actually make this wreath this fall....I made it last year and just today hung it on my door....but, it really did cost only $3.00!
I love all of the round wreaths, but I wanted my door to look unique, so I opted for square. My inspiration came from Sarah at Thrifty Decor Chick.
(I apologize in advance for some of these pictures...it was before I learned how to use the manual settings on my camera and how to edit with Picassa and Picnik.)
I started with a $1.00 piece of foamboard from The Dollar Tree, a utility knife, a large measuring squarish device and my hubby!
I decided how large I wanted the opening and then drew a perfect square in the center to cut out with a utility knife.
After I had my square, I took some $1.00 packs of leaves from The Dollar Tree and started randomly gluing them on with hot glue.
My compulsive personality made me do a pattern so that no two identical leaves were next to each other....
Overall....it was an inexpensive solution to a rather boring fall door and I love the unique square look to it!
What does your door look like?
