Update 10/1...Rhoda@Southern Hospitality is hosting a FALL party so I decided to join in on the fun...here is PART TWO of my FALL DECOR...please be sure to check out PART ONE for more of my home...PART THREE will be up as soon as I return home from the BEACH...so stay tuned to see more FALL DECOR with me...thanks soooo much for coming by for a visit! Be sure to view all the great FALL links over at Rhoda's FALL PARTY.

Well part two is finally here...my FALL wreath is up...so I guess that means that FALL is officially here! I made this wreath for a whopping $6.45!!! I spent $1.99 for the wreath, $2.97 for the pics, $1.49 for the "S" letter and the spray paint and burlap was FREE! I painted the letter with Heirloom White and then sanded the edges to give it a little distressed look...tied it up with some burlap and here it is...what a beauty I have here and I didn't break the bank! I still have more to come so stay tuned for part three.

Blessings,
Linda

Linda, I just found your Blog & Love it! Lucky you to live on the coast & be able to go to the beach!!!! I enjoyed my visit. I went down pretty far & got to see those beautful homes on Ono Beach. WOW! I could enjoy a bike ride there! Is it hard to be in the mood for fall at the beach where it doesn't get very cool or many leaves changing? I live in Texas & sometimes in the heat it is hard for me to get in the mood for fall. Although, it's one of my favorite seasons (we just don't have 4 seasons). Have a great day!

Hello sweet Linda - thank you for sharing your fabulous wreath! I have seen a couple examples out there in blogland, but I really like the way you've incorporated the burlap. It inspires me to make one for my door!

Blessings,

Love the "S" wreath! After seeing this around a few blogs, I think I need one of my own! I am an "S", too:)
Happy Fall!

Hi Linda,
That's a great way to personalize a wreath, I never would have thought of it! But of course now I think I will COPY you - hope you don't mind!
Aren't we lucky to have an ocean to enjoy, I just got back from lunch and a walk along the shore...
Hope you can come back for a visit sometime soon! (Remember, the winner for the giveaway will be announced on Monday)
Take care,
XO

Oh! That is beautiful. You did a fabulous job. :) Your monogram letter is bigger than mine and I like that...I couldn't find a bigger one. :(

The wreath is beautiful and I love the addition of the initial. What a clever idea.

Oh my goodness! I'm lovin' the burlap!

Thanks for stopping by!!!

Pretty wreath, and I can't believe how little it cost! I keep meaning to do something with burlap. What a neat idea, to use it to hang the letter on your wreath.

REbekah said...

Very nice! Love how you hung the 's' with the thick ribbon!

Tracey said...

It turned out beautifully! A perfect Fall wreath!!!

Jen R. said...

That is a very cute wreath!

Sue said...

Hi Linda, I liked how you used the initial in your wreath, as well as the burlap to tie it up to the door. I have burlap hiding in the attic somewhere and need to get it down for some more projects.

It must be a little hard to get into the fall mood when you live where you do- looks like such nice weather. Here, the weather has definitely changed- we are enjoying sunny days and cool nights. I saw that you've also set out some other fall decor- the pumpkins and leaves...
Thanks for stopping by for a visit during the fall decorating party. I love this season and kinda go nutty. *grin* Hope you'll be back again- I really appreciate you signing on as a follower. Don't be a stranger! :-) Sue

Wendy said...

I love that wreath!

jen said...

I love it!! I'd love to try that, but my last name begins with an M...I'm wondering if it would be to big?? Love the burlap ribbon too!
