Get Your DIY on Week #3


 Thank you all for inspiring us with so many awesome wreaths last week.  It seems we had every type of material: burlap, mesh, pine cones, ribbons, flowers, gems, pumpkins, spiders and skeletons.  You name it, we saw it.  Love  love love your creativity!

Here are some of my favorites from this week’s challenge: 

First, I have a confession to make. I love Halloween. And by love I mean I LOVE Halloween….as you will soon find out.  My house is known as the halloween house in my neighborhood.  Seriously.  And we are serious about it.  Whew, I’m glad I got that off my chest. Now it will come as no surprise that two of my favorite fall wreaths were halloween inspired! (It is SO hard to choose favorites!!)

This next halloween wreath, shared by Holly at Coconut Head Survival Guide, would fit in perfectly at my house. Absolutely spooktacular! Ah ha ha (That’s supposed to be a spooky laugh.) She provides excellent instructions as well!

Finally, I am loving this very romantic fall wreath by Karen at Shabby Sweet Cottage.  The fabric strips and  hydrangea give it a very vintage, romantic feel. I would hang this in my house all year long. In fact, I might just have to make one!

Now on to Week 3- This week’s theme is the Thirfty Upcycle.  Share with us any project you have given a makeover to for less than $20.00.

Let’s take a look at what me and my co-hosts upcycled this week. It’s amazing what you can transform with very little money.  All you need is a few supplies and some awesome creativity!
