The First Wreath of the Year

Fall is upon us! The actual first day of the season MAY be September 22nd, but my first day is the 1st. My sister, Ryann, and I went on one of our many thrilling Hobby Lobby trips and she had the idea for me to make a wreath. I, of course, said YASSSS!!


My all time favorite base for my wreaths is the scattered trig base. They come in all different shapes and sizes. There is even a square one that would be really cute and abstract. After you pick your base you can kind of, sort of, pretty much GO CRAZY! Try to stick to a few primary colors and one overall theme. I find picking 3 strong main colors works best, but you do you!

Then you can add your choice of garland. It’s always a good idea to start off a bit basic with your garland. That way throughout your craft you can add as much as you want.

After you have secured the garland, then begins the fun part! DECORATING! There is a little bit of strategy behind the madness, but you basically just start placing everything in a way that looks best to you. BUT, do not, I repeat DO NOT secure anything until the very end. I promise it will save you a lot of pain and heartache!


Fall in love.

Rustic Jewelry Cabinet

So recently I had a pretty important birthday, MY 21ST! And I received this custom, handmade, BEAUTIFUL rustic jewelry cabinet.

 

Everything is better with a little vintage flare!

I knew I wanted to give it a vintage touch, because, I mean, if you know me at all, you know I love vintage anything. But I still wanted to keep the rustic look very much alive. I feel like the decorative pieces I decided to use, evenly captured both the rustic and vintage feel that I was going for. The items I used to actually hold my jewelry were:

  • Wine corks
  • Rope
  • Burlap (because who can live without burlap?)
  • A distressed wooden picture frame

I know some people think I have an excessive amount of necklaces (Let’s get real, there’s no such thing) and I probably could have filled the extra space with the rest of my collection. However, I need to add a few more hints of my vintage/rustic theme.

Wine not

That’s when you bust out the empty wine bottles! And of course my dream catchers, that I feel, personally went PERFECT with the look!
