Outdoor Decor...

Pin It Now!

Yes. My dirty little secret.
While the inside of my house was plumped for Fall, my front door was barren.
{And while I am not fond of the white screen door, it came with the house.}
I had a bad case of the buy-something-new-itis this week.
I really, really, really wanted to buy something new for the front door.
I looked around at a few shops and found a wreath that I quite liked, but it was $70.
With all the monies that just flew out of our house for school fees and sports fees, I could not justify $70 that was basically a want...not a need.
So I went shopping in my basement.
I found this wreath that I bought in 2001 for our new house in Nova Scotia.
It came from Wicker Emporium.....a store in the Maritimes that I love.
I decided to add a little orange to freshen it up.
So I took this flower pick I already had from Michaels...

and cut some pieces to add to the wreath with floral tape.
Here is the finished project:
{Cost: $0.00}
There you have it-an upcycled wreath for Fall.
I also switched out this summer-ready lantern from this:
To this:
And added it to the little bistro table beside the front door.
Next I will be adding some fresh pumpkins.
Canadian Thanksgiving is just 2 weeks away!
How are you decorating for Thanksgiving?

Good for you, using what you had on hand! I did the same thing with the wreath I just made for my front door (haven't posted it yet). Yours turned out wonderfully and you saved a pile of $! Your lantern looks perfect for fall now too. I can't believe Thanksgiving is coming up so fast!!

Upcycled? How cute. It's looks like a very expensive wreath. And, look what you saved by doing it yourself!

Beautiful! What a small change to make such a big difference. I confess, I'm not a seasonal decorator but I love seeing what others do!

You've spruced that wreath up beautifully! No one will even notice that white door !

Kim said...

Very cute. It's amazing how just adding a few different flowers (and berries) can make your existing items look so fresh.

Lisa said...

Very pretty! I love your decor! I'm planning on taking out my fall decorations bins tomorrow to get started on my house!

Land family said...

Lovely as always! Amazing how those deep colored berries can make such a striking contrast to what was there previously (sea shells). Love your wreath too. :)

Becca said...

Your "upstyled" wreath is so pretty! Love all of the vibrant colors in there, not to mention the fact that it was *fer-eeee* to make! And, your lantern is beautiful with the Fall pieces in it. *Becca*
