Life at 1572: Need Me to Glue Something For You?

Need Me to Glue Something For You?

It is September and autumn  is in the air.  I have to say I think autumn is my favorite season.  I love the crisp coolness of the air, the crunch of the leaves, the colors, and especially the activities.  I almost forgot all those yummy smells, got to love the spiced candles.  I dug out my fall/halloween decoration tote from the garage last weekend. While, I have tons of Halloween decorations I was sadly lacking the fall decor.  I'm just not ready to put out the Halloween stuff so I turned to the internet for some help.  I found this The Fall Nesting Party at the Inspired Room blog.  Oh, so many lovely ideas on how to decorate for fall.  

Jack and I made a late evening run up to Michaels which, Jack calls the pumpkin store, so I could grab all of my fall decor supplies.  I purchased my leaves, grapevine wreath, and a cheap hot glue gun.  I love crafts how did I not already own a hot glue gun?  

I was going to work on my project the next day while Jack was at school thus avoiding his wanting to help me, but I got busy doing other things instead.  So what better to start the project than late that night.  Here are a few cruddy pictures due to sucky lighting late at night while I worked on it.

I just glued my leaves all over the wreath until it was mostly covered.  Then I stuck on some extra stuff like pumpkins and pinecones.  After, I was all finished Jack looked at it and said, "Mommy that is soooo beautiful." He really knows how to make his mama feel good.  

Here it is on our front door.  I love seeing it when I drive up to the house.  It was much cheaper than buying one already made, and it was really fun to do something crafty.

Looks good, but it looked like your background was carpet in the pic,hot glue guns, carpet & child helping isn't a good combo! Had a hot glue experience, just a warning!Save newspapers.
